Former Nigerian VP, Atiku Abubakar says President Goodluck Jonathan does not have what it takes to rule the
Former Vice President of the Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar ,says President Goodluck Jonathan is a learner in terms of leadership and has no experience
despite being on the mantle for over five years now.
Atiku who is a perennial contestant in the presidential race in the country believes he has more experience than
the incumbent and if he is elected president in the 2015 election, he has what it takes to move the country forward and out of the wood it currently finds itself.
Speaking with the French News Agency, AFP, the Adamawa State strong man who was the number two man from 1999 to 2007, says all the woes and calamities befalling the country can be traced to Jonathan’s incompetence,
especially the insurgency that has been ravaging the North Eastern parts of the country for years now.
This insurgency shouldn’t have lasted even six months. Within weeks, we (Obasanjo and I) crushed it because we did not neglect military training and, of course, we did not lack the leadership and the capacity to take decisions.
I told Nigerians that Jonathan did not have the capacity; he didn’t have the experience. He didn’t have anything and yet they gave him the chance,the opportunity. And they can now see the chance and the opportunity they gave him.
Of course, I’m more experienced than he is. I believe my capacity cannot be compared with his,
in all respect.
