Tinubu is Playing Fiddle While Nigeria is Drowning – Atiku

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2023 elections, Atiku Abubakar has blasted President Bola Tinubu saying he is playing fiddle while Nigeria is drowning in the ocean of insecurity.

The former Vice President stated this on his X handle @atiku, on Tuesday.

He called on the President to step aside if the shoes of governance have proven too big for him.

The President’s decision to travel abroad on a “private” basis was ridiculed by Atiku, especially considering that armed abduction gangs seem to be targeting Abuja and other regions of the nation.

Atiku said, “Tinubu is playing fiddle while Nigeria is drowning in the ocean of insecurity.

“To imagine that the Commander-in-Chief is on a so-called private visit while kidnappers kill a nursing mother and grandmother in Abuja for failing to pay N90m ransom and two monarchs in Ekiti, among other regular tragedies besetting Nigerians.

“If the shoes are too big for Emilokan, he should step aside. Nigeria does not need another Tourist-in-Chief.

“The country needs 24/7 leadership to confront the pervasive insecurity and collapsing economy.”
