President Muhammadu Buhari has been described as the most incompetent leader in the history of Nigeria, by Nigeria’s former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.
Speaking through his campaign organisation, Atiku Abubakar stated that his attempt to come to power “is to clean the mess that Buhari would leave which has resulted in job loss, poor economy and ranking of the country as one of the poorest.”
This was in response to President Buhari’s statement while receiving the All Progressive Congress nomination forms. The statement from spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Segun Sowunmi, reads;
“Never in the history of Nigeria has a more incompetent person served in the chambers of the exalted office of the President. No President of Nigeria, politics apart, will speak in such manner. The fact is that freedom of association is guaranteed by all the United Nations’ conventions and the constitution of our country.
“That Buhari has not been able to provide leadership and keep high-network individuals in the APC is to his own weakness and a question of his lack of capacity to keep Nigerians together. We are in the campaign and we are on the ballot. Atiku is attempting to become the President to clean the mess that Buhari caused in our country.
“Buhari has made many Nigerians lose their jobs and our country has become one of the poorest countries in the world. He has divided the country and people cannot move freely. He has made a mess of the economy.
“Therefore, we take his comment as not possibly referring to us. He should speak to issues, development, job creation, restructuring and so on. Obviously, these things he cannot do.”
President Buhari who received his nomination form on Tuesday, had lashed out at defectors from the All Progressives Congress, describing them as weak and selfish politicians.
