A former National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, Adams Oshiomhole has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar is the weakest of all three frontline candidates vying for the presidency in 2023.
Oshiomole maintained that the former vice-president lacks what it takes to lead the country in light of his track record of inconsistency and dearth of character.
Oshiomole said this while speaking in an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.
Oshiomole also highlighted Atiku’s incompetence to manage his household, saying such a candidate cannot preach family and unity to him.
He said, “You (Atiku) can’t manage your household, you are a serial divorcee and you want to preach unity and family to me?”
“For Atiku, if he is not the candidate, he takes a flight to Dubai. But you are talking of someone who upon leaving office, supported his wife rather than himself, talk of selfless service and gender equality.
It speaks to character. When you have sense of belief, you cannot be jumping from one party to the other every other election,” he said.
According to the former governor, Atiku’s ambition is just about himself and not about Nigeria.
He also said Atiku cannot be trusted as echoed by aggrieved PDP governors known as the G5 or the Integrity Group.
“PDP governors said we can’t trust him, every agreement we made with him, he broke it; he is a serial betrayer of agreements,” he said.
