Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says his friends are entitled to be rich.
He said this in Lagos during an interactive session with the business community.
Atiku was asked to respond to Eurasia Group’s analysis on him enriching his cronies if he gets elected and he said he was happy that the group did not say he would enrich himself or his family.
The presidential candidate said his friends are entitled to be rich as long as there’s no element of corruption.
“I’m happy that they didn’t say I will enrich myself, or the members of my family but my friends, are my friends not entitled to be enriched? As long as there’s no element of corruption in there.”
