“I’m prepared to be persecuted by Atiku,” Keyamo heads to court

A spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has threatened to sue Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar for alleged money laundering and related offenses.

Keyamo, a serving Minister of State for Labour and Employment, made this threat on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday.

Keyamo and the APC campaign council subsequently petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC), and the Conduct of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and gave them 72 hours to arrest the former vice president over corruption allegations.

A spokesman for Atiku’s campaign, Dino Melaye later described the allegations against his principal as a fairy tale, adding that the council won’t engage the APC on the matter.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said he is prepared to face persecution if Atiku wins the February 25, 2023 presidential poll but said he would go to court.

“Whether Atiku Abubakar wins or not (of course, I know he is not going to win), I’m prepared to face persecution under his government. I am prepared to go to jail, I am prepared to be charged even if he wins the election,” he said.
