Your govt is most corrupt since 1999 – Atiku tells Buhari
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described the government of President Muhammadu Buhari as the most incompetent and corrupt in Nigeria since 1999.
The Waziri Adamawa made this known while campaigning for the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi state on Tuesday.
He accused the government of expending all its energy on its focus on fighting corruption while neglecting other aspects of its responsibility as a government, including combating insecurity.
Addressing the supporters of the PDP in the state party secretariat in Abakaliki, Atiku said, “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. Fighting corruption alone is not the only responsibility of government.
“Our unemployment has accelerated high and there has never been a time we had more than 11million 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.”
