The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation says its presidential candidate for the 2019 elections, Atiku Abubakar, has nothing to do with the alleged issues leading to the collapse of Bank PHB.
PPCO Director of Media and Publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this at a news conference on Friday in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan said the allegation was a plot to fabricate lies, falsehood and frame up Abubakar, whom he claimed was already coasting to victory in the February 16 presidential election.
He said: “The PPCO makes bold to state that Atiku has nothing to do with the alleged issues leading to the collapse of Bank PHB.
“Atiku is an honest and hard working Nigerian who has no skeleton of any sort in his cupboard.
“The world already knows that this is an attempt to mudsling our presidential candidate.”
Ologbondiyan said Nigerians could see through those lies, fabrications and frustration and the scheme against Abubakar, adding that they were already dead on arrival.
“The PDP presidential candidate, our great party and indeed all Nigerians, who have already reached a national consensus to vote-in Atiku will not be distracted by this unfounded allegation,” he said.
