The wife of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant Hajiya Titi Abubakar has said that her husband is not a thief and would never steal if elected. Mrs Abubakar made the remark when Atiku Women Prayer Group visited in her residence in Abuja.
She said Atiku is rich and contented and was never in the race to steal money.
“He only joined the presidential race to give back to the society that had given him so much.
Hajiya Titi said ;
“Atiku Abubakar lost his father at a very tender age and was raised by his mother with lots of challenges as she had to sell her wrappers to see him through school and raise him to be what he is today.
“Because of the challenges he passes through in life as a youth and the challenges encounter by his mother when raising him he developed soft spot and likeness for women and youths.
“That is why he has promised forty percent of his cabinet position for women and youth if he emerges as Nigeria’s president in 2019.”
Abubakar said that the mischievous rumours of corruption being peddled against her husband by mischief makers were politically motivated and intended to malign him politically.
She said till date Atiku Abubakar had never been invited or indicted by any lawful authority in Nigeria.
