“We need to warn Nigerians to be wary of the sugar-coated promises of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and his PDP as they embark on their inordinate and desperate campaign to gain power at all cost.

“A party that should be eternally shameful about its appalling record in governance between 1999-2015 is now busy rewriting history, embellishing the locust years as if it was a golden era in our history.

“Of course, this is fake history at its worse, we are not fooled. Nigerians should also not be fooled about the boldfaced lies, being articulated by the candidate and his party,” Onanuga said.

He said what was more shocking was Atiku’s audacity in standing up to ask for votes in spite of what his boss, former President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote about him in his book, ‘My Watch’.

“We are, however, not totally surprised about Atiku’s latest desperation. Aware that this is his last shot at the elusive presidency, Atiku, while on the hustings, has been spewing series of lies.

“Making empty promises and presenting a false narrative about our present reality and the legacy of the 16-year ignoble era of the PDP administration, of which he was a principal actor,” Onanuga said.

This, he said, was something Atiku had been pursuing for some time since relocating to Nigeria from Dubai, primarily to run for president in 2023.

In a private moment, the APC PCC Director of Media and Publicity believed that Atiku would acknowledge that his position on insecurity was overblown.

According to Onanuga, the country is significantly safer than it was in 2015, when the PDP allowed insurgents to capture control of 17 Local Government Areas in Borno.

He stated that this was in addition to around four councils in Atiku’s native state of Adamawa, during a time when Abuja was under daily bomb attacks and people slept with their eyes open.

He questioned why Atiku required any additional evidence of the APC’s development than the fact that he was recently able to transport party members to Maiduguri for a rally without being attacked by rebels or robbers.

“Atiku can also drive smoothly from Yola, his state capital to Jada, his home town on a reconstructed road by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration.

“The road was impassable for eight years Atiku was Vice President and got progressively bad and totally cut off from civilisation until the Buhari government reconstructed it.

“The most grotesque of Atiku’s promise is that he will ensure that the ASUU stopped going on strike so that universities reopen forever and ever.”

“Atiku forgot to tell his audience that a PDP government in 2009 signed an agreement with ASUU, which it never implemented for six years, leaving the mess of the agreement for APC to deal with,” Onanuga said.

He claimed that while the PDP allowed Nigerian colleges to deteriorate, Atiku and his boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo, established their own universities for the children of the wealthy, ABTI-American University and Bell University.NYSC portal

He stated that this former vice president’s commitment to sell the newly commercialized NNPC Ltd and all of its assets and subsidiaries for just $10 billion demonstrated that he had not changed his character as depicted by Obasanjo.

He said that Atiku had devalued the oil conglomerate even before soliciting bids, just as he had done with Nigerian companies he was required to sell.

According to him, this was accomplished under the Obasanjo administration’s abusive privatization drive.
Onanuga remembered that Atiku had made a similar pledge in 2019, stating that he would sell the NNPC to his friends and associates.JAMB portal

“Surely, he retains the same mindset, though he has changed the terminology to privatisation.

“In his campaign. Atiku’s refrain has been to tell the less discerning Nigerians that he is on a recovery and restoration mission in presenting himself to be elected.

“The question every Nigerian must ask him in pidgin is: Recover Wetin.

“Can the PDP ever be a recovery vehicle for our country, judging by its old record of service, when it spent 16 billion dollars on power that only resulted in worsening darkness,” Onanuga said.

He said if the PDP ever be a recovery vehicle when it also mid-wife the privatisation of power distribution to cronies, also leading to more darkness.

“Now the nation’s hope for uninterrupted electricity lies on the 2.5 billion dollars Nigeria-Siemens deal initiated by the Buhari administration.

“We need to further ask whether the PDP is hoping to be a recovery vehicle for our armed forces, when during its stewardship, it diverted billions of dollars allocated for arms, into private pockets and marabouts.

“Our ill-equipped soldiers were left to die as they faced guerrillas with superior weapons.
“Today, the APC government of President Buhari has changed the misfortune of our armed forces and boosted morale with modern weapons, fighter jets, warships and others,” Onanuga said.JAMB Result
