NAIJA NEWS NG gathered that he is being watched by Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), an agency of the U.S. Department of Treasury.
After this news went viral, it sparked a discuss on why AtikuAbubakar should or shouldn’t run for president in 2023. Read the curated tweets below:
Abdul-Aziz Na’ibi Abubakar
“In my life I never know a politician who has a sincere personality like AA, he will not lie at you just because he’s afraid to lose your votes
He built his politics base on principles, fact & figures not on mere propaganda or lie tell!”
“FACT: Atiku is equipped with ideas to make Nigeria great.”
“One of the many reasons I like Atiku is because of his honesty. He is not a Pastor/Imam. Never claimed to be one. He told the media squarely of his intentions to lease refineries. Boys para just to vote for Buhari/Osinbajo wey go do same thing after a year. Nigerians love lies.”
“Every well meaning Nigerians won’t allow that #CrookedAtiku get close to Power again! Imagine, $25M was wire-transferred into more than 30 U.S. bank accounts opened by Jennifer Douglas,Atiku’s fourth wife. Perhaps, he’s still insisting on selling NNPC.”

“Majority of Elites don’t want Atiku because they know he will give people quality education and chase away poverty from Nigeria, and that will mark the end of their”crony capitalism”. Reason why they have blackmailingAtiku for many years.”
Here are tweets by Nigerians who think an Atiku presidency is doom . Read below :
“The PDP are quick to call on the international community but now the international community is calling them via Crooked Atiku their paymaster and his Multiple Corrupt Practises….Irony of Life…Grinning face with smiling eyes
Motor don jam their Egungun”
Akeem Ọlálekan Dúrójáìye
“Politics aside, can anyone explain to me the rationale behind rooting for either Atiku or BAT for Nig. President in 2023.
Why are we so fixated in the past that we can’t think beyond these 2 personalties.
Can’t we get a younger, liberal& more competent hands from both APC& PDP”
ALABI OPEYEMI OLADIMEJI
“Atiku Is A A man with no shame or scruples!
A man who will easily steal Nigeria’s resources to enrich his pockets
A man who surrounds himself with fellow criminals!
May He never have the chance to ruin this country that He almost ruined!
He will NEVER be Nigeria’s president”
“By 2023, the likes of Peter Obi, Dave Umahi, Kingsley Moghalu, Nyesom Wike etc. will be in their late 50s early 60s (Prime age to lead). While Atiku Abubakar would be 77 with 4 wives and over 100 children, grand children, great grand children. Reason am”
Asiwaju of Owerri
“You are idiots if you want Atiku a man of almost 80yrs To be president. Who did this to Nigerians . Are you lots saying he’s the best candidate for the job? Wake up fellow compatriots”
“The Idea of Atiku being president in 2023 doesn’t excite me. It’s was cool in 2019 but for me that ship has sailed.”

“We don’t need America to tell us Atiku is a FRAUD of monumental proportion. Simple reason he will NEVER be President of Nigeria.
If he speaks like a fraud, behaves like a fraud, acts like a fraud, named in numerous fraudulent stuff, he is definitely a FRAUD.”
