The Wazirin of Adamawa, Atiku Abubakar has berated President Muhammadu Buhari over the latter’s comment while receiving the presidential nomination form allegedly purchased for him by a group in the presidential villa on Tuesday.
Atiku, a presidential hopeful under the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) described Buhari as the most incompetent leader in the history of Nigeria.
He added that his strive to emerge as the nation’s number one citizen was in a bid to clean up the mess Buhari has brought on Nigeria.
The spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Segun Sowunmi, in a reaction to Buhari’s comment while receiving the All Progressive Congress nomination forms, said, “Never in the history of Nigeria has a more incompetent person served in the chambers of the exalted office of the President. No President of Nigeria, politics apart, will speak in such manner. The fact is that freedom of association is guaranteed by all the United Nations’ conventions and the constitution of our country.
“That Buhari has not been able to provide leadership and keep high-network individuals in the APC is to his own weakness and a question of his lack of capacity to keep Nigerians together. We are in the campaign and we are on the ballot. Atiku is attempting to become the President to clean the mess that Buhari caused in our country.

“Buhari has made many Nigerians lose their jobs and our country has become one of the poorest countries in the world. He has divided the country and people cannot move freely. He has made a mess of the economy.
“Therefore, we take his comment as not possibly referring to us. He should speak to issues, development, job creation, restructuring and so on. Obviously, these things he cannot do,” Sowunmi said in a statement.
