Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said he is ‘the most investigated politician in Nigeria,’ noting that, up until now, no one has convicted him of any crime.

He added that even ex-President Obasanjo investigated him, but came up with nothing.

Atiku spoke at The Candidates, a political forum hosted by the Daria Media and NTA on Wednesday.


His statement was in response to a question by a member of the audience, who read an excerpt from ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s book, My Watch, in which he (Obasanjo) made allegations of corruption against his erstwhile Vice President, Atiku.

Obasanjo has since said that he had forgiven Atiku, noting that though the Turaki Adamawa had his fault, he is the better of the two front line presidential candidates for the 2019 general elections.
