Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has vowed to tackle corruption like never before if he is given the chance to preside over the affairs of the country.
He also challenged those he described as his self-righteous political enemies to keep quiet if they cannot prove his alleged corrupt activities.
Atiku said this during a facility tour of the new ultra-modern Yaliam Press Limitied in Jabi area of Abuja on Monday.
“It is sickening to continue to regurgitate allegations of corruption against me by people who have failed to come forward with a single shred of evidence of my misconduct while in Office.
“People who are bereft of ideas about entrepreneurial spirit always think that everyone else is a thief just like them,” the former VP said.
He said that it was morally offensive for people who despise honest labour to become judges in the courts of public opinion.
He also said that he did not become Vice President in 1999 as a pauper but rather had been a successful investor throughout his retirement life.
“If Atiku is a thief, merely because of his resourcefulness and successful investments, my political enemies should tell Nigerians the sources of their own stupendous wealth.
I will shock everyone because I believe that I will fight corruption like never before,” Atiku said.
