Buhari’s Government Lacks Capable Hands – Atiku Cries Out

Sequence to his prediction of coronavirus In Nigeria and Africa, Atiku has blasted President ’s government.

Atiku also expressed low confidence in the leadership of President to steer Nigeria clear of the magnitude of the current crisis.

“Today’s Nigerian government is severely lacking in qualified hands.

“And nothing proves this than the state of the Presidency itself. To think that after devoting N13 billion to the State House Clinic in the last five years, it is virtually useless as we face the most significant public health challenge of our national life,”

He said.

The 73-year-old condemned the current government for always being too quick to want to borrow at every instance, a feature he said shows a lazy mindset and an inability to make sacrifices necessary to get the economy into shape.

He said that other than asking for debt relief, Nigeria must also engage in immediate shuttle diplomacy to get Saudi Arabia and Russia to settle their differences and end the price war that is affecting the price of oil almost as much as coronavirus.

He said Nigeria must also insist that the funds looted during the military regime of General Sani Abacha and held back by various Western governments must be immediately and unconditionally returned to the country.

“We have a humanitarian crisis on our hands. I believe that President Trump is a reasonable man.

“He knows that if nothing is done to avoid the foreseeable dislocation of African economies, the next wave of mass migration to the United States would not be from Mexico,”

He said.

He said Nigeria must also abandon the 2020 budget and come up with a more realistic one because the oil benchmark is off and the country is no longer in a position to make certain allocations.

Atiku warned that Nigeria’s failure to make the right decisions will make it lose its position as the Giant of Africa.
