Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party Atiku Abubakar says his All Progressives Congress counterpart, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is desperate and ready to throw President Muhammadu Buhari under the bus.
The former vice president said the APC candidate is desperately trying to attack the failed policies of the present administration which he had vigorously defended since 2015.
Recall that Tinubu, who had days back slammed the Buhari government for the redesigning of the naira notes and fuel scarcity, had on Tuesday in Calabar fired the present administration for failing to fix the exchange rate.
The former Lagos State governor had said: “Today, they moved the exchange rate from N200 to N800. If they had repaired it, if they had arrested this, we wouldn’t be where we are today, we would be greater. They don’t know the way, they don’t know how to think, they don’t know how to do it.”
Reacting in a statement through his special assistant on Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku said Tinubu has thrown Buhari under the bus in his failed and desperate quest for power.
Shaibu said: “Tinubu has disingenuously been criticising President Buhari, trying to extricate himself from the failures of the APC which he had vigorously defended in the last eight years. Nigerians must not be deceived by this charlatan who is now posing to be on the side of the masses.
“It is funny that Tinubu, who proudly held the position of national leader of the APC for the last eight years, could throw the President under the bus in his failed and desperate quest for power.”
