Bullion Van Politicians after CBN –Atiku
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has said that ambitious politicians that run activities with bullion vans are the ones after the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.Recall that the media space has been awashed by report on how plans has been hatched to frame Emefiele on allegation of financial terrorism.
The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization has said that it has carefully reviewed the onslaught on the CBN Governor and called for restrain, given the sensitivity of his position to the nation’s economy.
“This is especially on the backdrop of apprehensions that inordinately ambitious politicians that run activities with bullion vans and raw cash are out to destroy the nation’s financial institutions, particularly, the CBN, for their selfish political interests,” the campaign said.
The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization, in a statement by its spokesperson, Ologbondiyan said, “it is instructive to caution that the stability of the CBN as Nigeria’s apex financial institution is critical to the economic and social health of our nation and must not fall prey to corrupt politicians who are out to annex and control our national patrimony as well as resources for their personal ambitions.
“Nigerians know the politicians who are desperate for political office as their ‘turn,’ who see our nation and her citizens as an estate for sale, and who believe that their vacuity, many gaffes, manifest incompetence, incapacity for leadership and allegations of smelly past can be perfumed through the dispensing of corruptly acquired cash.
“It is therefore important that those who are after the CBN and her Governor should be careful not to discredit the institution in the process as the consequential effect of such will be disastrous on our already ailing economy.
“Our Campaign counsels such politicians to rather market their programmes to Nigerians
