The All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that the collaboration between ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar will fail.
Speaking through its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, the ruling party said the former president’s description of Atiku as a corrupt, disloyal and unpatriotic leader who was not fit and proper to lead the nation was enough testimonial to the unsuitability of his former Vice.
The statement on Sunday reads in part: “Throughout their second tenure in office, (2003-2007) and until last fortnight, former President Olusegun Obasanjo had described Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as a corrupt, disloyal and unpatriotic leader who was not fit and proper to handle the mantle of Nigerian leadership.
“Only recently, Obasanjo vowed that God would not forgive him if he supported the Presidential aspiration of Atiku as ‘it would amount to handing Nigeria over to sharks and looters.
“It is this tendency towards indecision, insincerity, double talk and deception that has made Nigeria ridiculed in the eyes of the international community.
“A statesman is known for his principles and his statements are based on the strength of his convictions.
“When a supposed national leader makes declarations that are subject to change at any time based on his mood, such a leader loses his integrity and reliability.”
