Former Deputy National Publicity and All Progressives Congress leader Yekini Nabena made fun of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Friday, mocking him for not having begun serious preparations for the 2027 presidential election earlier.
Less than twenty-four hours have passed since the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate refuted accusations of certificate forgery made against him in court, so denying betraying President Bola Tinubu.
As an alternative, he claimed that the former governor of Lagos State backed Umaru Yar’Adua of the PDP in the 2007 presidential election, abandoning both him and the Action Congress of Nigeria.
Recalling how he prevented former President Olusegun Obasanjo from seizing control of Lagos State during the 2007 general election, Atiku also mentioned how he helped sustain Tinubu.
Nonetheless, Nabena maintained that the whole controversy surrounding the President’s credential from Chicago State University was a pre-election issue that had been overlooked.
Rather than trying to take the country backward, the former APC deputy spokesperson advised Atiku to focus on getting ready for another election in 2027 in a statement released on Friday in Abuja.
Nabena also brought the topic of Atiku’s contempt of court proceedings already in progress before the Nigerian judiciary and the Supreme Court.
The former vice president should begin getting ready for another election in 2027 as normal, he suggested, using this platform. It won’t make him President of Nigeria to stir up controversy over pre-election issues. President Tinubu’s certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria was not falsified, according to Caleb Westberb, the registrar of Chicago State University.
Nigerians have moved on, and Atiku Abubakar ought to know by now. Now that this administration is accountable and responsive, the nation benefits from effective governance. Check out what’s going on in each of the Departments, Agencies, and Ministry. Passport applications from Nigerians would no longer result in months-long waits. Three weeks later, more than 204,000 backlogs were resolved.
“Consider the assistance programs offered to senior citizens by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs.” Government intervention in aviation, health, transportation, economics, agriculture, and security is a result of the audacious decision to end the gasoline subsidy that has long held the nation hostage. Nigerians won’t let anybody, not even Atiku or Peter Obi, take their country back to the desert; the Renewed Hope Agenda is already effective.
