Atiku – The reasons why Nigeria is more divided under the APC.
Atiku – Why Nigeria is more divided under APC: Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President of Nigeria and a presidential candidate running on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has provided explanations as to why the country has become even more fractured.
Atiku claimed that the lack of national unity was due to the fact that the government led by President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) was unjust to all regions of the country.
According to the candidate for president, the country was not nearly as fractured during the time of the civil war, and he also mentioned that a big obstacle that the country is currently facing is insecurity.
Atiku delivered these remarks on Saturday in Abeokuta, which is located in Ogun State. He was addressing delegates from the PDP in advance of the upcoming presidential primaries.
According to the presidential candidate for the PDP in 2019, the government of Olusegun Obasanjo, whom the candidate served under as Vice President from 1999 to 2007, was successful in uniting Nigerians by building a government of national unity.
According to the Waziri Adamawa, if there is no unity and harmony in the country, it will not be feasible to rule a diverse nation consisting of many different ethnic groups and religions.
He pledged to bring unity to Nigeria by instilling a sense of belonging in every region, by combating widespread unsafe conditions, and by putting his plan for national economic development into action with the goal of remaking the nation.
He promised to make sure that powers were devolved from the federal government to the states and local governments, and he said that he would not let Nigerians down if they elected him as their next president.
Even at the time of the civil war, we did not see the kind of divisiveness that exists in this country at the present time; therefore, why do we have such a lack of unity?
Atiku explained that this was due to the fact that the APC government had not treated all regions of the country in an equitable manner.
While making a commitment to reunite Nigeria’s many ethnic groups, he noted that “we had done it before in 1999 when we came on board.”
He related how, just a few days earlier, a serving governor made a vow to maintain the sovereignty of local governments while declaring their candidacy for president.
On the other hand, he made the observation that the governor in question does not grant autonomy to the local governments in his state, and he stated that “you can see the hypocrisy from some of our politicians.”
He made a commitment to begin the process of amending the Constitution in order to grant increased authority and resources to state and municipal governments.
He declared, “If you vote for me, I promise I will not fail you, and I will not fail Nigeria.” “If you vote for me, I promise I will not fail Nigeria.”
Speaking, a candidate for the governorship of Ogun, the Honorable Ladi Adebutu, expressed his concern about the current state of insecurity and joblessness, but he also expressed his faith that the PDP “is on a road to restore Nigeria and Ogun State to winning ways.”
Atiku was present in Ogun alongside Senator Dino Melaye, Raymond Dokpesi, and others.
