February 06, (THEWILL) – Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar has accused President Bola Tinubu of being responsible for the current economic crisis ravaging the country.
Atiku, in a statement issued on Tuesday, through his spokesperson, Paul Ibe, said Tinubu was not prepared for leadership and so failed to anticipate the impending economic crisis in the country.
The statement partly read; “It has become fashionable for every APC-led government to blame others, especially the opposition and external factors for Nigeria’s economic woes.
“Now, Tinubu is elevating the blame game to the NEXT LEVEL as he accuses his party of lacklustre performance.
“The evidence, however, is overwhelming. Tinubu’s underperformance is largely attributable to leadership failures in the management of the economy.
“The failure of leadership by the APC-led government is staring every Nigerian in the face as the country’s economic, social, political and security challenges persist and assume frightening dimensions.
“An unprepared leadership such as Bola Tinubu’s failure to anticipate impending crises and is always slow to react.”
