While applying an eye-clearing medicine, someone comes and says to put some pepper in.
While Nigerians are insisting that Atiku is unfit to hold public office for the illicit transfer of millions of Dollars used to acquire the license for American University of Nigeria (AUN), his wife Jennifer Douglas Atiku who helped in the transfer is telling Nigerians that the “PDP Govt will ensure uninterrupted education calendar.”
Per an investigation report by the United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, “From 2000 to 2008, Jennifer Douglas, a U.S. citizen and the fourth wife of Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President and former candidate for President of Nigeria, helped her husband bring over $40 million in suspect funds into the United States through wire transfers sent by offshore corporations to U.S. bank accounts.”
The transferred money made Atiku an “employer of labor” and a proud owner of the American University of Nigeria, a school, with tuition fees that more than 99% of Nigerian students cannot afford.
His happened at a time when public universities were collapsing under Atiku and Obasanjo’s administration. Jennifer Atiku helped her husband establish the American University of Nigeria at a point poor Nigerian students were languishing at home due to strike action by university lectures over poor funding.
When interviewed, “Ms. [Atiku] Douglas indicated that all of the funds came from her husband and professed little familiarity with the offshore corporations actually sending her money.”
Mind you, she is an attorney with a Ph.D.
A spider’s cobweb isn’t only its sleeping spring but also its food trap. Nigerians should not allow themselves to be caught in the cobweb of the Atikus.
As an old joke says if you want to know if a politician is lying, see if their lips are moving. The sweet mouth of the Atikus appears to be the trap they used to deceive Nigerians in the past and what they are attempting to use again today.
The fact that Jennifer Atiku could boldly be campaigning for her husband based on improving education standard in Nigeria as she did over the weekend in Edo state knowing fully well her involvement in that illicit transfer shows that character of Atikus.
What Nigerians would want Jennifer Atiku to know is that no matter how beautiful and well-crafted a coffin might look; it will not make anyone wish for death.

As the saying goes, you must attend to your business with the vendor in the market, and not to the noise of the market. In the noisy atmosphere leading to the 2019 elections, it is my duty to attend to the important business of providing facts to Nigerians.
Birds sing not because they have answers but because they have songs. While I may not have the answers to the Nigerian problems, I have some songs that will ensure Nigeria is not returned to Babylon on May 29th, 2019.
Together, we can
