Former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has again spoken on the perceived feud existing between him and his former boss former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Atiku, who is a presidential hopeful on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) however said if Obasanjo says he has problem with him, that’s his (Obasanjo’s) problem.
The PDP presidential hopeful stated this on Saturday, in Lafia, Nasarawa State while addressing the Nasarawa State Working committee and delagates of the PDP.
Asked about his alleged rift with Obasanjo, Atiku said: “I don’t have any problem with former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, but if he says he has a problem (with me) that is his problem.”
Speaking on his plans if elected president, Atiku said he would take Nigeria to a higher level, adding that insecurity, poverty, and hunger are some of the factors militating against the progress of the country.
On President Muhammadu Buhari’s description of Nigerians youths as lazy, Atiku said it was improper to describe Nigerian them as lazy people who only needed free money.
He further contended that available records have proved Nigerian youths to be excellent sportsmen and women, astute businessmen and women, among others
While responding, the Nasarawa State PDP Chairman, Francis Orugu, commended Atiku for the visit, promising that delegates from the state would vote for a credible aspirant that would be able to represent the party in the 2019 presidential election.
