Titi, the wife of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) government of fostering division among Nigerians.
Titi Abubakar also lamented that the country was currently filled with people who are hungry and jobless owing to bad governance.
She said the government of Buhari had made energetic youths to take to the streets.
Daily Trust reports Titi Abubakar as saying this to journalists in Abeokuta on the sidelines of a dinner organised in her honour by one of the contenders for PDP governorship ticket in Ogun state, Oladipopu Adebutu.
“Nigeria is in trouble. There is need to vote out Buhari-led government on February 16 to get the country working again.
“I am here in Ogun state to bring message of hope, love and togetherness that my husband has sent me to come and give people of Ogun state.
“I have gone round and seen so many of our children on the streets. Anywhere I go, I see our boys, they are very idle.
“They have no jobs. They have no food. They will even tell you that they are hungry and that you should give them food.
“There is no money. People are suffering. And we are now more divided than we were before. So, we want to unite this country. Before we do this, our PVCs must speak for us. By this time next month, we have to vote APC out,” he said.
Legit.ng reports that Titi's lamentation came at the same time a former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, declared that President Muhammadu Buhari will return to Daura, his home town in Katsina state, if the 2019 presidential election is free, fair, peaceful and credible.
Obasanjo made this declaration when he addressed journalists at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun state, on Sunday, January 20, Legit.ng reports.
The former ECOWAS chairman whose address did not last more than eight minutes, simply gave out a booklet titled ‘Points for concern and action’ and asked the journalists present to go through it.
However, a lawyer and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Joel Soyinka, said that in spite of the imperfections of the ruling party, Nigerians are not ready to take a risk to return the PDP to power.
