“Nigerians Never Had It This Bad Since Civil War” – Atiku - 3 years ago
Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President, on Wednesday lambasted the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government for poor leadership. His words, “The country is in its worse state today. I have never seen it since the civil war. Ethnic division, north against south, this is very very dangerous for our survival as a country.” He said Nigerians had never had it this bad since the civil war while speaking at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, secretariat during a consultation visit in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. Abubakar regretted that those who were making Nigeria unbearable for its citizens today, were not part of the struggles towards the actualization of democracy. The Waziri of Adamawa urged Nigerians to rise up to change the APC led-government if they truly desired to continue to have a country. He said, “We must do all what we can to address this situation. We have to unite together to arrest this, otherwise you would one day wake up and find out that we don’t have a country, God forbid. “We may end up with 25-27 PDP states in Nigeria, because every part of this country is fed up with this government. And this is the most intolerant government I have ever seen in this country. And unfortunately for us, he was not even part of this struggle. “The situation in APC states is horrible. You cannot even meet like this. They are intolerable because they were not part of the struggle for actualization of democracy. If PDP was like this, there would not have been any opposition party in this country. “Let us therefore unite and make sure that we free this country and our people from this situation. The political restructuring of this country is inevitable, whether we like it or not. “We must deploy resources and powers to the federated units of this country. If states and Local Government Areas are given more resources and powers, the people would hold them accountable”.
