“Dodgy” Atiku One of the Reasons Many Nigerians Are Jobless- Keyamo
A spokesperson for the Buhari reelection campaign, Festus Keyamo, has claimed that PDP’s Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is a major reason for the unemployment faced in the country today.
The SAN was speaking in reaction to ‘The Candidates’ a political forum aired on NTA in which Presidential candidates are grilled about their policies and so on.
Keyamo also accused Atiku of telling blatant lies on live TV and claimed that the former Vice President is trying to pass his failures off as experience.
After watching Atiku/Obi on that programme, it has become clear to all Nigerians that our public institutions and commonwealth would be in grave danger if left in the hands of these dodgy and questionable characters who have no morals and no scruples about using and misusing public funds for private gains,” he said in a statement.
“Their claim on experience in running anything public or private cannot stand any act of scrutiny. The presidential candidate, who is easily a major contributor to our huge unemployment problem today as a result of his corrupt privatisation programme, counts this failure as a huge experience and wants to repeat same if elected.”
Keyamo also attacked Atiku’s statements on security, claiming that Boko Haram isn’t limited to the North-East as he claimed.
“Nigerians will recall that the Boko Haram activities had spread all over the North East, North West and North Central,” he said.
“For instance, the UN Headquarters, Police Headquarters, a Bus stop in Nyanya, a prominent Plaza in Wuse II were all bombed during the era of the last govt.
“A church or Mosque was bombed every week in 2013/2014. The herders-farmers’ clashes were the deadliest in 2014, claiming over 1,300 lives in a short period across the North.
“Boko Haram occupied over 17 Local Government Areas and hoisted their flags, effectively establishing a caliphate in the North East. All these happened before the coming of this administration.”
