2023: Atiku Abubakar not seeking foreign funds – campaign
The Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organization (AACO) has dismissed a letter with no date on it that was sent on behalf of a "Campaign Coordinator/President" of an organisation called the Atiku Abubakar Business Supporters in Diaspora (AABSID) and asked for donations to be made in Atiku's name.

The letter in question is headed "Fundraising Dinner Event for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Presidential Election Campaign 2023," according to the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organization.

It also mentioned that the fictitious letter appears to be being addressed to potential contributors and members of the general public, asking for contributions to our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, for president in exchange for, among other things, unrestricted access to Atiku Abubakar.

I’m disowning the document, The Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation notified the general public, particularly Nigerians in the Diaspora as well as corporate organisations within and outside Nigeria, that the Atiku Abubakar Business Supporters in Diaspora (AABSID) is a body/organisation unknown to the candidate.

Stating, “Neither he nor the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation has authorised any such fundraising event to be held on his behalf nor on behalf of his Campaign Organisation.

“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.“
