The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, not to waste taxpayers money, by using the Presidential jet to campaign.
Atiku stated this through Phrank Shuaibu, his Special Assistant on Public Communications, on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme.
He said that since Buhari had admitted that the economy has failed under his watch, he should stop wasting tax payers money on campaigns, and throw in the towel.
Shuaibu said: “He has come out to say he has failed, and it has nothing to do with our party. You know as well that here is a man that was sworn-in on May 29, 2015, and inaugurated his cabinet after 166 days, leaving the economy in the hands of the Central Bank of Nigeria, and he left many things unattended to, and we slipped into a recession, which we had not seen, since 1991.
“So, saying the PDP is his problem is completely out of context.
“Why waste tax payers’ money to go into an election? So that he will spend money junketing from one place to the other? Using our Presidential jet and tax payers money to fund it? Impossible! Let us leave the country to more serious people to run.”
