Atiku Reacts As Diaspora Group Plans To Raise Funds For Campaign

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has disowned a diaspora group seeking to raise funds for the 2023 election.

He stated that he does not have a relationship with the group known as Atiku Abubakar Business Supporters in Diaspora (AABSID) seeking to raise funds for his campaign.

Naija News reports that the former Vice President made this known in a statement on Tuesday released by his Campaign Organisation.

The statement said the group is distributing a letter to potential donors and members of the general public inviting donations to Atiku’s campaign in exchange for unfettered access to the PDP candidate among other promises.

The campaign organisation said Atiku did not authorise any such fundraising event to be held on his behalf nor on behalf of his Campaign Organisation.

The statement partly read: “The general public is hereby notified that the aforementioned Atiku Abubakar Business Supporters in Diaspora (AABSID) is not in any way affiliated or related to Atiku Abubakar and the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, and has not been mandated or authorised in any way whatsoever to represent the candidate or his campaign in any matter whatsoever.

”In line with the foregoing, any person or organisation dealing with the aforementioned Atiku Abubakar Business Supporters in Diaspora (AABSID) and/or its Campaign Coordinator/President or indeed with any other organization for the purposes of raising funds for our presidential candidate does so at their own risk and responsibility”.
