The National Leader of the ruling party of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief Asiwaju Tinubu has taken a swipe at the Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, saying Atiku is not fit to be President, as aside other things, he does not know what political party be belongs to, as he is notoriously known as a political merry go round and a carnival all by himself.
Chief Asiwaju Tinubu who said this and many more during a keynote address at the National Consultative Forum hosted by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups at NICON Luxury Hotel, Abuja on Tuesday, attacked Atiku and PDP, as the 2019 Presidential elections draws near.
Asiwaju Tinubu while giving his keynote address, said Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is only looking to become the President of Nigeria, so as to avail himself the opportunity to consume what he did not consume while as a Vice President under former President Obasanjo.
He said PDP and its Presidential candidate are only seeking power to further enrich themselves, after their 16-years of waste.
Tinubu in his speech said:
“Before going further, I commend the various groups working for President Buhari’s re-election for uniting under one umbrella, the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups.
We are working for the same cause and are of the same family. Thus, it is only fitting and proper that we join in cooperation & harmony so that we accomplish this important mission to the best of our ability, without confusion or internal strife” he said.
Tinubu said Buhari has proven himself so far, especially on Economy, security and fight against corruption. He said:
“President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to building the necessary foundation for a prosperous nation and diversified economy that will provide employment and fair opportunity for all. He has no tolerance for corruption and is vigorously ridding the nation of this blemish on our reputation.
He fights the terrorists and is not afraid to tackle the hardest challenges of governance. The PDP and their candidate had vast money at their disposal and they did nothing with it during their 16-year reign of waste.
They created no jobs and the only opportunities they promoted were their plans for looting the national treasury. They failed to bring social welfare for the poor because they forgot all about the poor. There was no serious problem they resolved.
Every national problem became a friend to them that they used as an excuse to skim from the public purse.Nigeria has already sacrificed too many years to the party trademarked by Plunder, Destruction and Poverty.
On PDP, Asiwaju Tinubu had this to say:
“We cannot allow the county to fall back into their hands for that means the country will sink back into a darkness of injustice, corruption and avarice that bears nothing but ill for us all.
So why are we here? To remind the people of the 16 years of cold-hearted neglect suffered at the hands of successive PDP governments.”
To remind the people that in four years and with fewer resources, President Buhari has created a better foundation for Nigeria’s future than all the PDP governments combined. One Buhari is worth more than the three PDP presidents who preceded him.
Atiku was with the PDP, with us, with another party then back with the PDP. He is a political merry go round and carnival all by himself.
Ask him which party he belongs to you, he must ask you what “year is it” before he dare answer…Ask him the direction he is going, he will answer “North, South, East and West at the same time.”
Just look at his relationship with his former boss, Obasanjo. At one point, the one despised the other. Obasanjo said he had asked God not to allow Atiku to become President. If Obasanjo once asked God to prevent Atiku..we are entitled to wonder into whose ear does Obasanjo now whisper his support for Atiku’s venal cause?
This is what the coming election is about. They claim to be a “reformed PDP” then they select as their candidate Obasanjo’s VP who took the term “privatization” to its literal extreme.
Through plotting contrived sales of national assets to himself, Atiku sought to turn half of Nigeria into his own private property. He sought to run off with the goose that laid the golden egg while simultaneously staying put in order to milk dry the national cow.
If given a second chance at the national till, he will consume all he did not take the first go around.
This is how a real government goes about the business of the people. President Buhari is the first president we have who has recognized the full impact climate change has throughout Nigeria.
For the herder crisis is not a story of religious conflict.
The Quran is not fighting the Bible nor is the Bible fighting the Quran. They are both manuals of peace and brotherly love.
To improve road access, we need to expand the model of using the NSIA to fund the repair of strategic roads. On port access, an alternative access to Apapa is desirable (by developing Tin Can Road, Inland Waterways and Rail System).
The stipends too have rescued many families from the direst poverty. Giving a caring parent the ability to put some food on the table in front of their loving children brings a solace beyond anything words can describe.
Over 12 million of our people have been touched by the benevolent hand of social welfare and enterprise development. As such, our President has been father to many.
While President Buhari worries himself daily about the plight of our people, Atiku and the PDP feast of their desire for power just for the sake of having power. They care not so they will do not.” Asiwaju Tinubu said.
