The All Progressives Congress(APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole has accused Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in last week’s presidential election of being desperate and selfish.
According to Oshiomole, Former VP Atiku is desperate, selfish, unstable and never destined to be president of Nigeria.
Adams Oshiomole stated this in a press conference on Thursday in Abuja. He was reacting to an earlier statement made by Atiku where the former vice-president said that the future of Nigeria rests with his presidency.
Oshiomole saw this statement as being arrogant and desperate. In reply, Oshiomole said, “But I think it also borders on arrogance. For Atiku Abubakar to suggest that our future is tied to his presidency. Atiku is destined never to be President of Nigeria.”
The APC national chairman accused Atiku of decamping from one political party to another because of his desperation to become Nigeria’s president. He recalled that Atiku challenged his boss then, former president Olusegun Obasanjo not to run for the second term in 2003 all in a bid to satisfy his desperate desires to become president.
“Atiku’s desperation is so obvious. He is so desperate that in 2003, he challenged his own boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo not to do a second term.
“He decamped to join (the defunct) Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN). I was in ACN then, we offered him the ticket and he lost the election and returned to PDP, Oshiomole said.
He stated that Atiku even joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) to run against incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari in the party’s presidential primaries but lost and went back to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)
“He contested again and lost the nomination and because he has only his interest at heart, he decamped again from PDP and returned to APC.
“He joined us in Lagos and rolled out the dollars, but we voted for Buhari as our candidate. He knew that he cannot defeat Buhari in the primary and went back to the PDP, Oshiomole said
Oshiomole further said that Nigerians are not insane enough that they will choose a selfish and unstable person like Atiku to be their president.
“Does he think that Nigerians are so insane as to think that a man who is not stable and whose interest is about himself will be a possible candidate to be elected at a time like this?” Oshiomole asked.
Recall that in the just concluded presidential election, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress Muhammadu Buhari amassed a total of 15,191,847 votes to win Atiku who got 11,262,978 votes
