ATIKU LACKS THE PEDIGREE TO BE PRESIDENT – BUBA GALADIMA
Abuja: Secretary, Board of Trustees, New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, has stated emphatically that the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar lacks the pedigree to be a president.
Galadima, an erstwhile ally of the PDP presidential candidate made the weighty assertion, this Wednesday morning as guest on Kaakaki, AIT’s current affairs program in reaction to a question about Atiku’s documented 5 Point Agenda.
“Atiku lacks the pedigree to be a president. It’s not enough to assemble the best brains to prepare a document, he does not have the pedigree to implement such a document.
Questioning Atiku’s antecedents and achievements in office, he queried: “What are Atiku’s antecedents in Government? Look at what Kwankwaso achieved as Governor of Kano State, in terms of infrastructure, human capital development and youth empowerment, etc.
“Atiku and Tinubu, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, both have private jets. None of their pilots or other staff on their aeroplanes are Nigerians.
“Kwankwaso on the other hand, trained so many pilots from Kano State.
He also dismissed rumours that the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Engr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso was working for the APC presidential candidate, Tinubu.
“Look at Kwankwaso’s followership every where he visited, from Kano, to Katsina, to Maiduguri, to Jalingo and even Lagos.
“Look at his achievements in Kano State. What are the antecedents of Tinubu and Atiku in office and why should he work for Tinubu?”
“If the NNPP is not popular, why is the APC witch-hunting NNPP candidates? In Lagos, the church of the NNPP Vice Presidential candidate, Bishop Isaac Idahosa has been marked for demolition. In Borno State, a house belonging to our Senatorial candidate has also been marked for demolition by the State Government. Just because they are members of the NNPP.
He alleged that a particular Presidential candidate was going around trying to woo NNPP candidates into his party with huge financial inducements.
