      Peter Obi – It was a merry moment earlier today after the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate in the February 14, 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, picked former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, as his running mate.
      The former vice president on Sunday became the presidential candidate of PDP, Nigeria’s main opposition.

      Peter Obi was seen in an elated mood with Champagne popping as he celebrated the selection with Chief Gbenga Daniels, a former two-term Governor of Ogun State and the Director General of the Atiku Campaign Organization, along with others.

      THE PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC PARTY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE INSINUATED THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST HIM ARE MERE RUMOURS.
      He revealed this through the spokesman of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Segun Sowunmi while speaking on a TV show – Sunrise Daily on Channels TV today, 12th of October, 2018.
      “The United States Senate has a very big idea that every rumour must be investigated and they also have following on investigation, an idea that justice must be done if errors have happened. Had anything been proven, it will not be left in the realm of conjecture” he said.
      He went on to explain that the U.S Special Investigative Committee conducted investigations on many issues regarding international money transfers due to the prevalent spate of terrorism then. He further said Atiku was investigated at that time because the Americans were suspecting Muslim individuals moving money in the country because of terrorism financing. He concluded that the investigation later failed to indict Atiku.
      “To their (U.S Senate) own surprise, they later found out that there was so such thing (terrorism financing) around that (Atiku’s financial transactions) …What was happening that in a bid to pay the faculty leaders of the American University, money was moving here and there to pay them and some of these monies which are obviously coming in for those university and facilities were monies he was looking for from some of his investments all over. The money wasn’t stacked up in one account and he was just throwing it there. No! He was looking for the money, if he makes a bit of money in one business, he puts it there” he added.
      One the Siemens bribery scandal, he also said:
      “The business ethics of nations are different; what they say they gave or didn’t give to a wife or a girlfriend or a sister or a cousin of anybody cannot be directly traced to me. It’s like saying that someone said he gave me money and just because I’m friendly with Ajuri (the interviewer), I got the bribe on behalf of Ajuri, that is caca.”
      It would be recalled that Atiku’s fourth wife, Jennifer Douglas who was living in Washington DC in the United States of America reportedly received $40 million from offshore Shell accounts into U.S banks between the year 2000 and 2008.
      Specific allegations say that $2 million was paid by a telephone company, Siemens to Atiku’s wife, Jennifer Douglas on behalf of Atiku while he was the Vice President of Nigeria. Siemens has admitted to paying the bribe to Atiku for the purpose of influencing the allocation of a moneyed contract in Nigeria to the company.

      HERE IS THE FULL TEXT OF THE REMARKS MADE BY FORMER PRESIDENT OLUSEGUN OBASANJO DURING THE RECONCILIATORY VISIT BY THE PDP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, ATIKU ABUBAKAR, TO ABEOKUTA TODAY.
      I am happy to welcome the distinguished leaders of goodwill who have led the PDP Presidential Candidate and my former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, to my humble abode and I welcome the Presidential Candidate himself.
      Let me start by congratulating President-to-be, Atiku Abubakar, for his success at the recent PDP Primary and I took note of his gracious remarks in his acceptance speech that it all started here.
      Yes, when it started, it was meant for Atiku to succeed Obasanjo. In the presence of these distinguished leaders of goodwill today, let me say it openly that we have reviewed what went wrong on the side of Atiku. And in all honesty, my former Vice-President has re-discovered and re-positioned himself. As I have repeatedly said, it is not so much what you did against me that was the issue but what you did against the Party, the Government and the country.
      I took the stand I had taken based on the character and attributes you exhibited in the position you found yourself. I strongly believe that I was right. It was in the overall interest of everyone and everything to take such a position.
      From what transpired in the last couple of hours or so, you have shown remorse; you have asked for forgiveness and you have indicated that you have learnt some good lessons and you will mend fences and make amends as necessary and as desirable.
      Whenever or wherever you might have offended me, as a Christian who asks for God’s forgiveness of my sins and inadequacies on daily basis, I forgive and I sincerely advise you to learn from the past and do what is right and it will be well with you. Obviously, you have mended fences with the Party and fully reconciled with the Party. That’s why today, you are the Presidential Candidate of the Party. In addition to appreciating all that the Party has done for you, may I advise you to work together with all those who contested for the Party’s flag with you as a team for your campaign.
      There are still areas, nationally and internationally, where you have to mend fences and make amends.
      You will know how to handle what is already out and what may yet be put out by the opposition. But, I am convinced that if you continue with the attitude that brought you here with these distinguished leaders of goodwill, with remorse and contrite heart, the rest of the coast within and outside the country can be cleared. And if there is anything I can do and you want me to do in that respect, I will do.
      I am sure with the right attitude for change where necessary, and by putting lessons learned by you to work, you will get the understanding, cooperation, support and mandate – all at the national level. With Nigerians voting for you, it will mean that you secure their forgiveness and regain their confidence. It will be with the hope or assurance of a Paul on the road to Damascus Conversion. After all, change and conversion are of man. I believe that with a contrite heart, change is possible in everybody’s life and situation.
      For me, relatively and of all the aspirants in the PDP, you have the widest and greatest exposure, experience, outreach and possibly the best machinery and preparation for seeing the tough and likely dirty campaign ahead through. From what I personally know of you, you have capacity to perform better than the incumbent. You surely understand the economy better; you have business experience, which can make your administration business-friendly and boost the economy and provide jobs.
      You have better outreach nationally and internationally and that can translate to better management of foreign affairs. You are more accessible and less inflexible and more open to all parts of the country in many ways. As Pastor Bakare, one-time running mate of the incumbent President said, “You are a wazobia man.” And that should help you in confronting the confrontable and shunning nepotism.
      As you know, along the road to where you are today, many leaders and ordinary people cooperated and overtly and covertly worked hard. On your behalf, I thank them all. May their coast continue to be expanded. And when you become Nigerian President which, insha-Allah, you will be, remember what we did together in government – we ran an administration by Nigerians for all Nigerians where merit and performance count more than blood relationship, friendship or kith and kin. Although some time and ground have been lost, you should endeavour to start from where we stopped and recover some lost ground, if not time.
      Please uphold truth, integrity, principles, m0rality and fight corruption, crimes and insurgency. The fundamental law of the land, our constitution must be scrupulously defended. I make one demand and one demand on you today, I need you to say before God and man that you will always remain irrevocably committed to upholding ALL the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the whole country will remain your single indivisible constituency.
      Constitutionalism, popular participation and inclusiveness are pre-conditions for reversing the deficits of the past three and half years. They will ensure abiding faith in our indivisibility, oneness and faith in the survival of all against none.
      The fundamentals for our development, economic growth and progress are hard and soft infrastructure. Remember to always give adequate places in your administration to our youth and women.
      All the authorities involved with the preparation, all processes and conduct of the election must ensure that the election is free, fair and credible.
      Once again, congratulations and I wish you well. My distinguished brothers and leaders of goodwill, thank you for making this happen. I will now count on you to encourage all hands to be on the deck to take Nigeria to the level God has created it to be – autopilot level.
      God bless you all and God bless Nigeria.
