The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has been described as a “serial betrayer” and the “weakest” of all the frontline candidates in the 2023 general election.
The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole and deputy director general of the Presidential Campaign Council of Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, stated this during a live appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
Oshiomhole stated that Atiku is the “weakest link right now among the three leading candidates”, including Tinubu and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
After switching from the PDP to the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the PDP, the APC, and finally the PDP in 1999, the former governor of Edo State claimed that Atiku lacks character and consistency.
“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 a sense of belief, you cannot jump from one party to the other every other election,” he said.
The former governor said Atiku’s ambition is just about himself and not about Nigeria
He added that the 76-year-old politician, Adamawa born, cannot be trusted, a sentiment mirrored by the disgruntled PDP governors, 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 added.
