Saraki, Atiku And Others Says BUHARI’s Government Is An Abysmal Failure
The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, were among eminent Nigerians who described the All Progressive Congress, APC led administration by President Muhammadu Buhari as an abysmal failure.
Atiku, Saraki and others stated this at Mapo Hall during the PDP South West Mega Rally which attracted huge party faithful, including former governor of Osun and Ogun States, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, and Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Senator Ben Bruce and former Minister of Sports and Special Duties, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja.
Both Atiku and Saraki specifically stated that due to the fact that President Buhari failed to fulfill his various promises made to Nigerians in 2015, Nigerians would not re-elect him at the 2019 president election.
Among the promises they claimed Buhari failed to deliver were: failure to provide security of lives and property and failure to tackle corruption as Atiku alleged that since the history of the country, corruption had never attained the high level of the current state.
According to Atiku,
“In 2015, some liars, deceitful people came here to deceive us and we gave them our votes. But we have discovered that they have failed to deliver all the promises they made to Nigerians. In the history of this country, the best prosperity, peace, educational advancement were all enjoyed under the Peoples Democratic Party. He (Buhari) promised us jobs. But instead of giving us jobs, over 12 million jobs have been lost. They promised to alleviate poverty but we are becoming poorer as a country. Now, Nigeria is the poverty capital of the whole world. Is this the kind of government you want to continue with? If I’m given the opportunity, we shall return prosperity to this country.”
“Everyone knows that I chaired the best economic team in this country. If you give me the opportunity again, I will organise the best team that would bring economic prosperity back to this country. South West has been known for educational advancement, if I’m given the opportunity, I will ensure that this zone regains its glory. One of the most touted things is restructuring of this country. Today, I pledge that within six months, we shall begin the process of restructuring. I have lived in this city and I am not a stranger to Ibadan or Yoruba race, therefore, don’t believe APC again. PDP needs your support. This Buhari must go”.
