Former Vice President and Presidential aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has argued that fighting corruption is not the only responsibility of government.
Atiku spoke in Abakaliki on Tuesday while addressing supporters of the PDP, at the Ebonyi State Secretariat of the Party.
The aspirant, who was in the state to campaign for Presidency under the party stated that the only achievement the All Progressive Congress (APC), led government can boost of is fighting corruption.
“What is happening today in our country is in contravention with all our provisions of our constitution. In our federation, we are supposed to have an inclusive government but you know that this federal government is not inclusive.
“You know that this federal government is not united; you know that this federal government is incompetent; you know that this federal government is more corrupt than any government we have come through since 1999”.
”So, let nobody come and deceive you on corruption, they are more corrupt than any government that I know since 1999 and we shall be revealing their level of corruption. Fighting corruption alone is not the only responsibility of government”.
“Our unemployment is accelerated high and there have never a time we had more than 11 million people, young people, young women thrown out of job. Today, we have more than 11 million unemployed people. Today, we have witnessed much insecurity in this country. Today, we are witnessing high inflation the APC government has brought to us in this country”, he said.
