The Convener of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, has stated that Bola Tinubu, the 2023 Presidential Candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and Atiku Abubakar, the Candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have nothing to offer Nigeria and Nigerians, if any of them emerges as President in 2023,
He argued that Tinubu and Atiku have been within the political circle for about 30 years, but he is not convinced from their achievements so far, that they have anything new to offer in 2023.
He however, noted that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would have been a better Presidential quality material for the country in 2023.
Prof. Abdullahi spoke with Vanguard.
His words: “We still have not 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.”
