The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has called out the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, saying he was not fit to occupy the position of the president of Nigeria.
Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Yekini Nabena, stated this on Monday in Abuja.
According to him, Atiku was not fit and proper to aspire to be elected president of Nigeria, faulting his performance record as a vice president as well as questioned his integrity.
“In assessing candidates to be voted for during elections, Nigerians will normally consider the candidate’s background and antecedents. The pertinent question to ask about Atiku is what his scorecard in public office was? Regrettably, Atiku’s scorecard is abysmally low and he has proven to be an untrustworthy and unreliable character,” APC said.
Stressing that Atiku had moved around different political parties in desperate pursuit of his ambition to become president, Nabena added: “It is, therefore, very clear that if Atiku loses the presidential election in 2019, he will again defect from the PDP to another political platform.
“Atiku is known as a super rich Nigerian who entrenched the undemocratic practice of buying votes of delegates. During the APC National Convention in 2014, he spent several millions of dollars to buy delegates votes and emerged third, after Buhari and Rabiu Kwankwaso.”
