The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to recent report of 12 million Nigerian farmers making donations for President Muhahammadu Buhari’s reelection campaign.

Atiku expressed doubts over the donation and advised Buhari to shun the use of state resources and machinery for the upcoming 2019 presidential poll.”

The Ex-Vice President also wondered why Buhari flashed double four hand signal during his budget presentation at the National Assembly last week.

Atiku said this in a statement yesterday by his Special Assistant to Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu.

He continued, The other day, a man who scored 15,424,921 votes to win the 2015 general election was reported to have been nominated by 14 million APC members at the presidential primaries for 2019.

“Now, over 12 million farmers have donated to his campaign. Are they indirectly spewing out outrageous figures of people they intend to claim voted for them in the coming elections?

“Could that be why the President was flashing an occult double four hand signal that has gone viral? What did the hand signal mean?

“Does it mean that the President has jettisoned the idea of a free and fair election and telling Nigerian People that no matter how they vote, he will return for a second term of four years?

In any case, if the farmers who just took a loan through the borrowers anchor programme and have not liquidated the facility can donate this huge sum or any sum for that matter, it means the Association of widows and children of all those slain by Boko Haram and herdsmen will donate N5billion to the Buhari campaign.

“In fact, the 23.1 million youth who lost their jobs between 2016 till date will donate about N12billion to the Buhari campaign.

Assuming but not even conceding that such a huge sum of money was donated to Buhari by Nigerian farmers as his handlers would want Nigerian People to believe, wouldnt such donation be in contravention of Section 91 (9) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) which says no individual or other entity shall donate more than N1m to an aspirant or a candidate, he said
