Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has accused Vice president, Prof Yemi Osinbajo of indicting President Muhammadu Buhari in his campaign.
The former Vice-President who spoke through his media assistant, Paul Ibe, said Osinbajo was not only indicting himself and the President but was also contradicting his own statements.
Atiku was reacting to a charge by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Nigerians to ignore empty promises while carrying out a door-to-door campaign in Lagos last Sunday.
He said by failing to deliver on the 2015 electioneering promises, the Vice President has invariably admonished Nigerians to reject the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
According to Ibe, “Osinbajo is running a self-indicting campaign for his boss and himself.
“How can they ask Nigerians to beware of empty promises when they are the ones that made the promises? Come on, do these people think Nigerians are fools?
“They promised to create three million jobs in a year but we are witnessing job losses in millions since they took over.
“They promised to make a naira equal to the dollar but a dollar is almost N400 today. They promised to bring insecurity down on its knees but as I am talking to you now, Zamfara is on fire.
“Soldiers in large numbers were recently killed. One of our finest former Defence Chiefs, Air Marshal Alex Badeh was a few days ago killed very close to the nation’s capital.
“Do not forget that under this administration, some Nigerians took their lives, unable to put up with what life suddenly threw at them.
