How Atiku acquired N200m mansion

Nigeria's Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, is a man that is rarely seen or heard. Infact you could, many say, correctly describe him as taciturn. His public persona is that of a man of few words.

Nigeria's Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, is a man that is rarely seen or heard. Infact you could, many say, correctly describe him as taciturn.
His public persona is that of a man of few words.

The last time we heard from him was a few weeks after the sack of former Education Minister, Fabian Osuji. The disgraced Minister had insinuated that his travails might be because some people thought he was too close to the Vice President.

Uncharacteristically, the Vice President made a public statement declaring full support for the "Anti-Corruption crusade" of his boss, hence endorsing Obasanjo's actions against Prof. Osuji and distancing himself from the embattled professor.

In "Strategies for the 2007 Presidential Election in Nigeria," an article published last week by, it was suggested that the Vice President's reluctance to join the race for the Presidency in 2007 might be because of disagreements between him and Pres. Obasanjo arising from some perceived corrupt practices on the part of the Vice President.
It has been widely rumoured that Obasanjo's privatisation policy mostly benefited the Vice President and his cronies.

Conventional wisdom, observers agree suggests that Atiku Abubakar, as the incumbent Vice President would be the front-runner in the race to succeed his boss.

One would have expected him to trumpet the only program of the Obasanjo Administration, which has fooled a majority of Nigerians: The Anti-Corruption crusade.

Some well informed people in Abuja have suggested that the Vice President should be one of the people being hounded by EFCC and Nuhu Ribadu but the President could not touch him because they are both playing off of each other, Obasanjo was the person who gave Atiku the headship of the privatization process and it was him who broke the ground to launch his multi-million dollar American styled University (ABTI) in Yola, Adamawa State, they both own private universities.

Our investigations reveal that Vice President Atiku Abubakar might have broken the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on December 1, 2000. This is one and a half years after becoming the Vice President of Nigeria. On that day he bought a mansion in POTOMAC, Maryland for one million, seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($1,750,000). The house, a two storey building was constructed in 1988. The land area is about 2.3 acres. Today, that house is valued at over two million dollars ($2 million). POTOMAC, Maryland is America's 12th richest neighbourhood. The house was purchased in the name of one Jennifer E. Douglas, whose official occupation is a Home Making.

Jamilah Atiku Abubakar aka Jennifer Douglas E. aka Jennifer Douglas-Abubakar is the fourth wife of Vice President Atiku Abubakar. A former journalist and Ph.D. student at the American University in Washington, Mrs. Atiku is the Founder, President and CEO of GEDE Foundation, a non-profit organization based in the Washington DC area of the United States. A cursory glance of the donor list of the Foundation shows that many high net worth individuals and blue chip companies that donated to the Obasanjo Library Project are all listed. While there are lots of anonymous donors, such individuals as Herbert Orji, Lucky Omoluwa, Cosmas Maduka, Jibril Aminu, Oba Otudeko, Abba Dabo, Musa Bello, and Akinwole Omoboriowo are on the list of donors. The corporate donors include but not limited to: Chrome Oil Services, Coscharis Motors, MTEL, UBA Plc., Chevron Texaco, COJA 8th All Africa Games, Guardian Express Bank, Sea Petroleum and Gas, Goodworks International LLC., Coca Cola, Motorola Nig. Ltd., Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Total Fina Elf, Rockview Oil Services, Stanhoe Ventures, Devon Energy, Zenith Bank, Riggs Bank, DynQuest, Capital Lending, Global Apex Air Ltd., Gucci, Virgin Atlantic Airways, Saks Fifth Avenue, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany and Company, Doxa Digital, and many more.

On the surface it may appear that the Vice President did nothing wrong as Jennifer Douglas E bought the said property in Maryland. While we cannot reliably confirm that VP Atiku and Jennifer were married as at then, we are reliably informed that there was a romantic relationship between them which eventually culminated in marriage and the Vice President uses the residence in POTOMAC as his official residence whenever he is in the US. A source that insists on remaining anonymous said, "Everybody knows Atiku paid for the house. Jennifer was pregnant with his child and there is no way she could afford a multimillion-dollar home. I challenge you to engage forensic accountants to look into this. You will discover that I am telling the truth." Other independent sources confirmed to us that the house was paid for by Atiku Abubakar. Atiku and Jennifer are the owners of the American styled University in Yola (ABTI), capital of Adamawa, Atiku's home state. A critic of the Obasanjo-Atiku Administration "after studying at the American University in Washington, the woman liked it so much that she and her husband decided to set up one in Nigeria. Who knows, someday we'll have a President's wife who will get Harvard University set up in Nigeria as a birthday gift!"
