From Agabus Pwanagba, Jos
As the battle for December 10, 2014, All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential primary draws near, former Vice President (VP) and Presidential hopeful of the opposition, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, had reiterated that the challenges presently confronting the country are the effects of incompetence and lack of experience of the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.
Atiku made this disclosure Tuesday, while addressing APC delegates in Jos, the Plateau State capital, ahead of the Party’s Presidential primary billed to hold in Benin, the Edo State Capital.
“As I said in 2010 prior to the PDP Presidential primaries between myself and Jonathan, I warned that Nigerians should stop giving power to people who are not competent, have no experience and are not prepared.
“Today this is where we have found ourselves, because we gave power to someone who is not prepared, who cannot govern, no experience and someone who did not even vie for the office in the first place.
“My love for democracy and adherence to its tenets made me to fight against Obasanjo’s third term agenda”, former VP stressed while soliciting the support of the delegates.
“Today all those defecting from one party to another, are able to do so because I went to court and won my case, that I have the right to change my party even if I’m in power.
“These are some of the things I want you people to take note of, while casting your votes during the Presidential primaries” added Atiku.
The APC Chieftain established that, these were some of the reasons why he came to solicit for delegates’ support, during the forthcoming primaries.
He assured the delegates that, all the Presidential aspirants have agreed that, who ever picks the party’s ticket, would be supported by the other aspirants.
Atiku then appealed to them to vote for whoever emerges as the party’s flag bearer.
He urged them to always contribute to the growth of the APC at all levels, saying, “today if you become a Councillor, Chairman, or any office, it was on account of the party image.
