Perish The Thought Of 2019 Now-Atiku Warns APC

By Ikenga Chronicles January 17, 2017

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar on Monday, January 16 called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) to perish the thought of continuing to rule Nigeria after the 2019 elections.

Atiku, gave this warning when he paid a condolence visit to Niger State over the death of a former governor of the state, Abdulkadir Kure.

Atiku’s statement is a veiled reference to the general state of hardship in the country and the poor performance of his party, the APC on the economy. That was even as the leadership of the APC and the Senate Caucus of the party admitted that the multiple crises that have rocked the party have hampered its intended delivery of democratic dividends to Nigerians.

When asked about preparation for 2019 elections, Atiku said: “Who is talking about 2019 now, when there is no food on the table? People are hungry.”

Earlier, while eulogising the late Kure, Atiku said: “He was a friend, a colleague, a brother, a compatriot. His death is a personal loss to me. The kind of pious life he lived will definitely earn him paradise.”

Recall that the Senate Caucus and the APC National Working Committee(NWC) agreed that the inability of Buhari’s government to deliver good governance was due to wrong leadership.

The party leadership and the APC Senate Caucus, however, had agreed on a smooth running of government with the change of the Senate Leader last week.

Present at the condolence’s visit were Senate President Bukola Saraki, Deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, former Adamawa state governor, Murtala Nyako, former Nasarawa state governor, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, former Eboyi state governor Dr. Sam Egwu, among others.
