A former Vice President and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday said he had no problem with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Abubakar, who has been on a nationwide tour canvassing support for his 2019 ambition, made the statement while addressing the Nasarawa State Working Committee and delegates of the PDP in Lafia, the state capital.
When asked to comment on the alleged rift between him and Obasanjo, Atiku said he had no problem with the former President, Punch writes.
“I don’t have any problem with former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, but if he says he has a problem (with me) that is his problem,” Atiku said.
The Turakin Adamawa promised to tackle the menace of insecurity, poverty, and hunger, and take Nigeria to a higher level if elected president in 2019.
He also took a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari who described Nigerians youths as lazy people, saying available records have shown them to be excellent sportsmen and women, astute businessmen and women, among others
“If elected President of Nigeria, I will restructure Nigeria by empowering the youth, eradicate hunger and poverty, as well as fight insecurity,” he stated.
He then called on the delegates to vote for him given his experience and resourcefulness.
