Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the claims by the All Progressives Congress (APC) which accused him of making plans to get the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 election.

The former vice-president on Thursday, November 26, said he has not initiated discussions with anyone about contesting the next presidential election, The Nation reported. Atiku in a statement through media aide, Paul Ibe, told the ruling party to focus on tackling the mounting problems it has created instead of verbally attacking him. He said the living condition of Nigerians have worsened under the APC government because the party has been focusing more on playing petty politics than on actual governance

Atiku said:

“It is evident that the APC has failed woefully on all the major issues it campaigned against the PDP in 2015 from poverty to insecurity; joblessness and high cost of living; national unity to bad foreign image; human rights abuse to economic recessions – issues which if the APC was a serious political party, should be dispensing its energy in resolving.”
He accused the ruling party of being more interested in increasing its membership while more important issues in the country were being ignored. Atiku stated that he has preoccupied himself with providing solutions to the problems the APC has caused for the country. Meanwhile, following the recent defections that hit the PDP, Dr. Ahmad Lawan, the Senate president has explained why the APC will continue to harvest more defectors.

The Nation reported that Lawan explained that President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration was starting to get appreciated by the people.
