The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused former President Olusegun Obasanjo of indecision, insincerity, double talk and deception, stressing that the development has made Nigeria a laughing stock in the eyes of the international community.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena made this assertion in a statement released to newsmen in Abuja. He expressed optimism that the recent accord between Obasanjo and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would fall like a pack of cards in 2019.
“Throughout their second tenure in office, (2003-2007) and until last fortnight, former President Olusegun Obasanjo had described Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as a corrupt, disloyal and unpatriotic leader who was not fit and proper to handle the mantle of Nigerian leadership.
“Only recently, Obasanjo vowed that God would not forgive him if he supported the Presidential aspiration of Atiku as ‘it would amount to handing Nigeria over to sharks and looters.
“It is this tendency towards indecision, insincerity, double talk and deception that has made Nigeria ridiculed in the eyes of the international community. A statesman is known for his principles and his statements are based on the strength of his convictions.
“When a supposed national leader makes declarations that are subject to change at any time based on his mood, such a leader loses his integrity and reliability.”
He further called on Nigeria to reject the PDP, as they were out to deceive them.
“Nigerians cannot be deceived, we have seen them all – Presidential Library, Bells and American University of Nigeria, Breweries and Shopping Malls, all established with largely public funds but privately owned by public officers,” he added.
