Better step down now, you are a destruction to this country – Atiku tells Buhari
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and a former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign for admitting on Friday when meeting with governors that the nation’s economy was in bad shape.
Atiku who unleashed an attack on president Buhari says, since when you took over power you did not remeber to talk about the poor economy in the country, you failed to noticed all the pains the people have been going through. you are trying to buy their minds, Nigerians will not have sympathy on you because you are been stretched tight. the people don’t need a sleeping president Atiku says.
Buhari reportedly made the confession during his meeting with the 36 governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Mr Phrank Shaibu, on Sunday, Atiku said the President’s confession that the economy was in bad shape was not only a ploy to attract the self pity of Nigerians but also aimed at getting a soft landing.
He said, “The result, of course, is his confession of failure on the eve of our general elections in the hope that millions of Nigerians, whom he has condemned to poverty and hardship, will give him a clap for failing abysmally.
“I dare say that President Buhari has miscalculated badly on this matter because Nigerians are simply fed up with him.
“The economy has collapsed under his watch and he has by this frank remark admitted that he has no idea on how to fix it and that is why he summoned the governors to help him.
“This is really very sad because President Buhari has run out of time and what Nigerians need now is leadership which has the political will, administrative experience and sound economic acumen to get Nigeria working again.”
