Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for President in the 2023 election, has charged President Bola Tinubu with attempting to obliterate Nigeria through poverty, starvation, and economic misery.

Atiku compared Tinubu to a quack physician attempting to treat a diseased patient, emphasising that Nigeria is in a dangerous state.

In a statement provided by his media assistant, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku stated: “The fallout of the shambolic policies of President Bola Tinubu-led APC administration is killing Nigerians even as there are no efforts to stem the tide.

“The unprecedented hunger, poverty, and hardship in Nigeria were part of Tinubu’s ultimate plan to decimate Nigerians and pauperise them until they have no shred of dignity left.

“Tinubu is like a quack doctor trying to treat a cancerous patient. But the quack doctor is likely to kill the patient even faster than the cancer itself.”

The former vice president criticised Tinubu for attributing the current crisis to former president Muhammadu Buhari.

“Rather than get to work, he continues to blame his predecessor, President Muhammadu Buhari, for handing him an empty treasury and a weak economy and the opposition for instigating mass protests.

“He talks as if Buhari was not a member of their diseased All Progressives Congress. He also forgets that his own kabukabu policies and its fallouts are what is instigating the mass protests across the country,” he said.

In addition, Atiku accused Tinubu of manipulating the nomination process for ministers, emphasising that the majority of the ministers needed to be more fit to be chosen.

He lamented the President’s restricted economic perspective, citing his decision to prioritise loyalty over competence by surrounding himself with his “Lagos circle.”

Atiku maintained that the President needed to be more knowledgeable about national economic development and security, as well as Nigeria’s economy.
