The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has described the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari at Wednesday night’s town hall meeting as “a comedy show.”
In a statement sent to our correspondent on Thursday, Atiku’s media aide, Phrank Shuaibu, said the town hall meeting had exposed Buhari as “a person unfit for office” and unprepared to lead a 21st century nation.
He said, “The town hall meeting neither added value nor content to public discuss.
“Clearly, it exposed the fact that the incumbent is neither prepared to rule for another four years, nor does he have a reason to seek a second term.
“The President’s responses to questions border more on classic dementia than reason. It was practically a display of wretched illiteracy.”
Atiku said it was obvious that the President had shown a lack of knowledge of the goings on in his administration, absence of policy direction and minimal capacity.
The statement added, “It is a shame that this is the best that a supposed ruling party can produce in the 21st century: a man lacking in vision, elementary knowledge and depth. Buhari is a joke, a parody of the 21st century.
“This man has shown that he is unfit to be an administrator of a WhatsApp group, let alone being President of Nigeria. He is not fit, neither should he be allowed to lead the over 200 million Nigerians in the 21st century.
“Of a truth, President Buhari is a man to be pitied because it is apparent he cannot help himself.
“It is now left for Nigerians who are desirous of charting a new course for their country to salvage it by voting Atiku Abubakar on February 16, 2019 .”
