Atiku Abubakar’s Rumbustious Politics, By Okoi Obono-Obla
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar should be told in clear language that he can’t win the Nigerian presidency by simply using foul , uncouth , intemperate and rumbustious language on President Muhammadu Buhari , which is totally and completely out of sync with the communication , one will expect from a supposedly statesmen!
Atiku was for 8 years, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria , therefore his conduct and utterances must be polished , well thought out , decent and diplomatic ! Atiku says President Muhammadu Buhari is “ incompetent “ ! Wow , how competent has Atiku been! He left the Nigeria Customs Service as a lowly Deputy Director ! This was the only job he had before his foray into politics and eventually becoming Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria !
On the other hand , President Buhari has an intimidating, dazzling and rich resume before his election as President in 2015 ! He was Military Head of State , Member of Supreme Military Council ; Governor of the defunct North Eastern State ( now Adamawa, Bauchi, Bornu,Gombe and Taraba States) ; Federal Commissioner ( Minister) of Petroluem Resources ; Chief Executive Officer of NNPC; General Officer Commanding ,First , Second and Third Divisions of the Nigerian Army ; Director of Supply and Transport Corps of the Nigerian Army ; Military Secretary of the Nigerian Army and Chairman , Petroluem Trust Fund. Atiku should tell us what he will do for us if he become President and spare us his hate speeches and insult of President Buhari !
Undoubtedly, President Buhari is a better politician , a paragon of integrity and consistency! He is not a political rolling stone ! When he was dissatisfied with the shenanigans in the defunct All Nigerian Peoples Party, ANPP he founded the defunct Congress for Progressives Change , CPC which platform he used to waged an unrelenting and robust opposition of the debauchery foisted in the country by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP ! He never prostitute from one political party to another in a frenzied desperation to secure a presidential nomination !
The change we have today in the country is a result of the tenacity and determination of President Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu ; otherwise today the country would have had a one party dictatorship which the PDP plottted to impose in the country !
So , Atiku Abubakar must please show respect to President Buhari !
