Atiku Abubakar has slammed Aiswaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for trying to separate himself from the failures of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The ex-vice president and Tinubu are among the top candidates in the running of who is to become Nigeria’s next president come February 25, 2023, as they will be flying the flags of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) respectively.
Tinubu complained about the current exchange rate with the dollar, the scarcity of the new naira notes, as well as the increase in petroleum products during his campaign in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Special assistant on public communication to Atiku, Phrank Shaibu, lambasted the former Lagos state governor for trying to excuse himself from the current crisis rocking the nation.
In a statement on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, Shaibu said:
“Tinubu has disingenuously been criticising President Buhari, trying to extricate himself from the failures of the APC which he had vigorously defended in the last eight years.
“Tinubu is the APC, mind, soul, and body. He was the national leader of the party even before Buhari became the presidential candidate. His latest outburst is nothing but diversionary tactics.
