A former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has slammed the government of President Muhamadu Buhari as the most corrupt since the return of democracy in 1999.
Atiku unleashed the salvo while addressing supporters of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), at the Ebonyi State Secretariat of the Party in Abakiliki, saying Buhari has failed on all counts, Daily Trust writes.
“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”.
“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.
Atiku has been on a nationwide tour of the PDP infrastructure to bolster his chances of clinching the party’s nomination for the 2019 presidential election.
