Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described the current administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari as a “government of liars”.
Abubakar, a PDP Presidential aspirant for the 2019 elections, said this on Thursday, August 16 while addressing members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu state.
The Waziri Adamawa said the All Progressives Congress (APC) promised three million jobs annually but the country has been recording job losses, leading to the “worst form of insecurity” in the country.
“This government is a government of liars. They promised three million jobs per annum but Nigeria has been losing three million jobs every year,” he said.
“This job loss has brought the worst form of insecurity in the country. We are facing challenging times in Nigeria. Today, economy is at its lowest ebb and the greatest challenge is unemployment.”
Meanwhile, journalists were shut out of the Enugu government house when the former vice-president paid a visit to the governor of the state, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
After pleading with the security operatives at the government house, only one journalist was allowed in with Paul Ibe, media aide of Abubakar.
Abubakar was received by his supporters when he arrived at the Akanu Ibiam International airport and this led to a gridlock.
