Blame PDP government for fuel scarcity – Atiku
Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has attributed the current fuel scarcity to the misrule of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
Atiku who spoke to Journalists yesterday after a private meeting with the President-Elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari at the Defence House in Abuja said they the hallmarks of PDP were inefficiency and corruption.
He said that Buhari’s government would bring changes, but stressed it would be gradual.
“We just discussed private matters. Well, there is nothing unusual in what is going on. That is PDP for you: corruption inefficiency and what have you. Real changes will come. The president elect has assured that but it will not just come over night. It has to be gradual. Definitely there will be positive change in that matter but it will be gradual”.
On the zoning of offices in the national assembly and the time it will be resolved, the former Vice President said “That is too earlier. This is something the party and the leadership are handling. I believe it would be resolved before the House reconvenes”.
Meanwhile, a statement from his media office earlier commended the Nigerian military for rescuing some 293 women from Sambisa forest in Borno state.
“While we rejoice in the rescue of the women and girls yesterday, we urge that our military continues steadfastly in the operations until all abducted Nigerians have been rescued and territories recaptured,” Atiku said.
