#ATIKUGATE Part 2: OF ATIKU, SCRUTINY, AND THE GREEDY CHILDREN
As promised in the first part of my revelations, this second episode provides further insight into the character of the Atiku household. Most importantly, why is Atiku running for the office of president in 2023? Beyond the façade lies an uncontrollable appetite to attain wealth through corruption, cheating, and unaccountability. As you read further, take note that nothing I am putting out here is my personal opinion. It is not my emotions; you hear straight from the horses’ mouths.
If my only role in the destination of Nigeria is helping fellow citizens know who NOT to vote for, I am satisfied. The risks are high; my family and I could get wiped out; my character can be called to question and maligned; my children are traumatized; I am losing the trust of millions of people who will blackmail me with the title of ‘snitch’ or ‘betrayer’. None of this is easy on me or any of my children.
But the stakes are so much higher than just my personal considerations. Nigeria is on the verge and it will take a miracle to survive the future if you vote for this family. Of this, I am certain.
In 2020, there were rumours that Nigeria’s National Assembly was planning to raise the minimum qualification for aspirants to that office. It was generally thought that Atiku was the target of that move.
My former principal wanted to retire from active politics. He was tired. He had spent a lot of money since 1992 but a combination of factors had stopped him from winning his most coveted position; President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
But as far back as 2020, just a year after his 2019 loss, his children were already desperately pressuring Atiku to contest for a final time. Why did they want this so badly as to (by their father’s admission), “hire their Moms to pressure….” The Waziri into sinking funds for such a draining venture?
As seen in the email below, Atiku’s major reason for running for office is what his children will say if he does not do it.
“…….until I die otherwise what will my children say of me? You know all of them are in Nigeria. The struggle continues.”
He is not worried about what you and I think or say. He is not worried about what we go through and how his actions affect the rest of Nigeria. It is about enriching his already wealthy family. To some, this is how ‘generational wealth’ is built.
I will return to Atiku’s children shortly but first, let’s talk about the school certificate matter.
His Excellency contacted me and asked that I secure admission for him in a Nigerian polytechnic where his acquisition of a higher qualification would not come under scrutiny (see email below).
I traveled four states in two days and got him admission in two schools; Federal Polytechnic Idah, and Dorben Polytechnic , Abuja.
The worrisome part was the instruction to avoid scrutiny. It was a hard choice between loyalty and amazement. I could do anything for my principal at the time but I wondered why a man like him was ready to go to such lengths. Then I remembered: his children. He was ready to do whatever it took to let them have their way.
His children, Hauwa Atiku-Uwais and Mohammed Abubakar, have left clues for everyone who cares to know, to know.
In one of our countless meetings, Hauwa and her husband, Ahmed TJ Uwais, asserted that the reason Mohammed is desperate for their father to win is to enable him become a “Multi Billionaire”.
She described her brothers (she hates them and has always threatened to deal with them ruthlessly) Adamu and Mohammed as two-of-a-kind when it comes to greed and corruption. By her admission, “nothing will stop” her brother from becoming excessively wealthy if their father wins.
Buoyed by that confession, I later spoke to Mohammed in his Maitama office, and, to my greatest shock, his speeches confirmed what his half-sister had said about him and Adamu. That:
- He – Mohammed – has only one mission; to make his father win the presidency and if that happens, his “appetite” would become larger.
- Mohammed would like to move his family abroad, permanently, like his father who lives in Dubai. He however states that he does not yet have the kind of money required to live like a king if he goes abroad now. He confirms what his father told me by email, that Mohammed and his siblings already live the good life here in Nigeria. But, despite his privileged wealth, Mohammed is banking on his father winning the presidency (“our hustle”) to enable him to possess the billions it takes to afford that level of comfort abroad.
By the last count, Atiku Abubakar has thirty-one children. Thirty of them are adults and all of them want to become stupendously wealthy off access to Nigeria’s resources. Mohammed, for instance, according to Hauwa, is a major beneficiary of his relationship with a South West governor. In fact, so rich is Mohammed that his sister and aides have claimed that he spent billions of naira to sponsor the campaigns of a number of state governors.
With that kind of wealth, Atiku’s son thinks he still needs much more to live life. Where do you think the money is going to come from? And all of them want to outdo each other in wealth ownership. I worked with more than just a few of them and so I know that their reach into the national treasury will be too deep if allowed to happen. It is even scarier when you consider that, right beside them is Nigeria’s most powerful and corrupt cabal – again, not my opinion – trying to take control of already scarce resources. What do you think remains for you and your families?
All these and more will happen under the ‘leadership’ of a president who is, as self-confessed, an expert in using SPVs to cover his tracks and, as his email about avoiding certificate scrutiny shows, hates accountability. Who then is deceived by the appearance of piety? What sincere leader despises scrutiny? Intentions matter over actions, as I always say.
Those who still support Atiku’s bid are about to enable a man whose major reason, amongst many, is to give his wives and children uncontrolled access to Nigeria’s purse while millions of families continue to live in abject squalor. I did not make this up. The words are theirs. I have much more damning evidence by way of videos, audio, text, and interview confessions by past and present aides of the family.
Like I have continued to reiterate, I will only put out what is basically enough to help citizens to make informed choices. I will withhold issues that are too deep and capable of destroying the fabric of this nation. I supported Atiku Abubakar and fought for him. Not because I felt he needed to be President but because I sincerely loved the man. I did tell him on several occasions to work more on leaving an unforgettable legacy than anything else, including the presidency. He will testify to this. But I supported his ambition because love can make you miss or ignore red flags. But moments of clarity occur and I am that man who can adjust his opinion and perspective when new information becomes available.
I do not pretend to decide whom Nigerian adults can vote for, so long as history will report that I put my life in mortal danger to warn and inform you, to avert great disaster. This revelation is, once more, not my personal opinion, but the very direct confessions of the people who have presented themselves to lead you. Listen to them and be informed.
I may yet die, but the truth cannot be hidden forever.
