The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has labeled President Muhammadu Buhari as a failure who has never engaged in any successful business enterprise in his life.
The former vice president of Nigeria released this statement in response to the spokesperson of the APC, Yekini Nabena, who questioned his source of wealth.
Replying through his media organization, Atiku reminded the APC that he has run more successful business enterprises unlike President Buhari.
“We wish to remind APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, that Atiku Abubakar is not like President Buhari who has never run a successful private business throughout his life.
Unlike Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar is an expert job creator who has founded many successful and thriving businesses including the American University of Nigeria, Yola; a microfinance bank that has moved 45,000 families out of poverty and Rica Gado, a livestock feed company that has significantly reduced instances of herdsmen/farmers clashes by providing a business-friendly solution instead of asking Nigerians to give up their lands for cattle ranching or face death, as the Buhari government did.” the statement read
Atiku urged the Buhari Presidency and the APC to mention even one successful private endeavour that the President had successfully run.
“By private enterprises, we are not referring to 150 cows that never increase in number, year in year out,” the statement read.
The former vice president will be contesting against Buhari in the February 2019 presidential election in Nigeria. He was formerly a member of the All Progressives Congress before defecting back to the PDP.
He clinched his party’s ticket after defeating other aspirants in the primary election which held in Port Harcourt the capital of Rivers State.
