President Buhari used and dumped me - Former Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar



Looks like the battle line has been drawn. Former Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar has started to deal his hands. In an interview with Voice of America (VOA) Atiku Abubakar said President Buhari administration has sidelined him after using him to achieve their aim.
Atiku who contested alongside President Buhari at the All Progressives Congress primaries in 2015, said APC took his money, then dumped him. He said President Buhari has failed Nigerians in many ways.

Honestly speaking, I’m still a member of the APC; I was part of all the processes, including campaigns until success was achieved.But sadly, soon after the formation of government; I was side-lined, I have no any relationship with the government, I’ve not been contacted even once to comment on anything and in turn, I maintained my distance.They used our money and influence to get to where they are but three years down the lane, this is where we are.The ruling government had failed in many fronts.Yes, there were successes but not comprehensive success because the Boko Haram miscreants are still very active, killing our people and many local government councils in Borno and Yobe are under their firm grip. People cannot dare go back to their dwellingsThis thing baffles me; I never imagined that Nigeria will fight a protracted battle with Boko Haram for five years.At a time, we fought the Biafra war, which was more complicated because of the terrain in the South but the Biafran soldiers were roundly subdued in 30 months.But here we are, fighting an endless battle with the Boko Haram and there’s no end in sight.How many people were arrested, prosecuted and jailed? How much was recovered from the looters?When we came on board in 1999, I remember we recovered between $4.5 and $4.7 billion from those that looted under Abacha, he said.

Recall that yesterday, Minister for Women Affairs Aisha Alhassan publicly declared support for Atiku Abubakar, if he decides to contest in 2019 (We all know he will. He has to. It has been his thing for a while now.)
