Why I can’t step down for you – Atiku replies Tinubu



The Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said he is running for office to clear the mess created by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He stated this while replying the APC flagbearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu who took a swipe at him during a rally in Gbaramatu, Delta State.

Tinubu, who said the PDP candidate “is always on the run” begged the Pere of Gbaramatu to urge Atiku to discontinue his presidential bid.

“One says he is Atiku. How many times has he been running? He’s always on the run. He is never tired of running. Tell him to go and sit down,” he said.

But in a statement by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, the former Vice President said he will not stop running because he wants to lift Nigerians out of the mess created by the ruling party in its clueless eight years.

The statement reads; “Let me tell you what Atiku Abubakar is not running to. He is not running to drug trafficking and money laundering; he is not running to forgery; he is not running to perjury; he is not running to a shady past.

“He is running to make life much better for Nigerians. He is running to use his experience to lift Nigeria out of the mess of more than seven years that was created by a clueless government fostered by a man like Tinubu.

“He is running to use his experience as a former vice-president and in the private sector to change things around, to restructure the country, to unify the country, to give Nigerians an opportunity to recover.

“He (Tinubu) should focus on telling Nigerians his vision for Nigeria; that’s what he needs to do. He needs to convince Nigerians why they should settle for a party that purportedly was going to bring change but brought a change that decimated the economy, that divided them more than ever before. He should focus on convincing Nigerians after all they have done.”
