Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who recently resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has stepped up his criticism of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
In a resignation letter which he sent to the APC ward chairman in his Jada 1 Ward, Jada Local Government, Adamawa State, Atiku said his hope that the APC government will make improvements to the lives of Nigerians and the continued existence and development of Nigeria as one indivisible nation, has now been dashed.
“I am unable to reconcile myself with the dismal performance of the party in government, especially in relation to the continued polarisation of our people along ethnic and religious lines, which is threatening our unity more than any other time in the recent past and the unbearable hardship that our people are currently undergoing,” he said.
He called on members of the APC in his ward who “share his concerns to join forces with him in his strive to defeat impunity and restore vision and purpose in governance.”
“As I said in 2006, it is the struggle for democracy, constitutionalism and service to my country and my people that are driving my choice. Let me emphasise again that this is not about me. We have to have a country before people can aspire to lead it.
“While wishing you well, let me express the hope that in the near future, a substantial number of you will join forces with us to once again defeat impunity and restore vision and purpose to the politics of our great country,” he said.
