Atiku Tells APC, Presidency To Focus More On Nigeria’s Problems Than Him

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has called on the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency to find ways to solve the problems they created for Nigerians instead of focusing on him.

The former vice president noted that the ruling APC “has validated the assumption that the main reason why the living condition has been deplorable under the administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari is due to the fact that the party focuses more on playing games. mean politics than in the current government. “

The APC had speculated that the plethora of goodwill messages sent to the former vice president on the occasion of his 74th anniversary was a precursor to his first campaigns for the 2023 presidential election.

But in a statement through his special assistant in media and publicity, Mazi Paul Ibe, Atiku, standard-bearer of the Popular Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 elections, said: “It is absurd that a political party, which has spent the last five and a half years throwing huge and unprecedented difficulties at Nigerians find no time to address and apologize to Nigerians for the false promises of change they made.

He lamented that the ruling party could shamelessly “waste an entire day self-adulation of the politicians, who have crossed over to join the APC,” noting that neither the PDP nor Atiku have started talks with anyone in the 2023 presidential race.

“It is APC, which has been busy talking about zoning and focusing on manipulating the next elections. To avoid any hint of doubt, Atiku, like many Nigerians, who are pained by the downward spiral of the country’s condition under APC rule, has been concerned with offering a solution to the myriad problems that APC has raised in the country. . .

“It is clear that APC has regrettably failed on all the important issues it campaigned against the PDP in 2015, from poverty to insecurity; unemployment and high cost of living; national unity to foreign bad image; Abuse of human rights to economic recessions, issues that if APC were a serious political party, it should devote its energy to solving, “he said.

While denouncing the inability of President Buhari and APC to address the widespread state of insecurity in the country and unite a deeply divided nation, Atiku lamented: “But instead of doing that, APC is prancing about feeling good because their number Membership is rising, while the economic profile of the country and its people continues to decline.

“Perhaps, we should remind APC that focusing on Atiku will not improve the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) or lift the country out of the current recession; it will not create jobs for the youth of Nigeria.

Focusing on Atiku will not solve the problem of inflation and the high cost of food; Nor would it lift millions of Nigerians out of poverty. “
