The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Monday night, said the Deputy Director General (Admin)
of Atiku Campaign Organization, Barr. Tanimu Turaki SAN, has been arrested by the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). PDP warned that Turaki should be release
immediately and unconditionally. It reads: “Since the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the PDP expressed our unwavering determination to reclaim our victory at the tribunal, being armed with
overwhelming evidence, our leaders have been
subjected to escalated harassments, constant threats, blackmails, cajoling and contrivances by
the APC to drop our legal option. “It is instructive to state that Tanimu Turaki
was arrested and detained upon invitation by the EFCC to endorse a bail document for the
Finance Director of Atiku Abubakar’s company, Babalele Abdullahi, who was arrested earlier by
the commission over flimsy allegations.
“The PDP, however, states in clear terms that the APC and the Buhari Presidency are fighting
a lost battle as no amount of harassment and threats will ever make the party to buckle in its
determination to take back the mandate, in line with the wishes and aspirations of Nigerians.
“Nigerians are resolute on this struggle to reclaim the mandate freely given to Atiku
Abubakar at the polls and the PDP will pursue this decision to its logical end and secure justice
for the Nigerian people”.
