The convener of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has said Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, can’t fix Nigeria.
Abdullahi said Tinubu and Atiku have been within the political circle for about 30 years, but he is not convinced with their achievements and what they have to offer in 2023.
The elder statesman, however, stressed that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo could have been a better presidential material.
According to Abdullahi: “We still haven’t got the man who we think will fix Nigeria. What we have on the ground is not good enough. How can you look at Tinubu and Atiku to say they are the ones who will fix this country?
“They have been on the ground for the last 25, 30 years and so on. What have they done? What are we looking for?”
“I believe we have not had a good array of politicians. With due respect to some of them that one saw contesting, I am not being selfish here by referring to certain people like Prof. Osinbajo. He is a quality material but the political system will not tolerate him,” he told Vanguard.
