People are Hungry and you are talking about 2019 – Atiku blasts reporter

by on January 17, 2017
Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Monday said Nigerians are suffering under the present dispensation because there is no food for them to eat.
Atiku told newsmen in Minna when he joined the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, in a condolence visit to the residence of the late former Governor of Niger State, Abdulkadir Kure.
He said Nigerians shoud not be talking about 2019 because the people are hungry. However, when asked on his preparation for the 2019 General Elections, Atiku said, “Who is talking about 2019 now when there is no food on the table? People are hungry.”
He described the late Kure, as a friend, a colleague, a brother, a compatriot.
“His death is a personal loss to me. I consider this loss as a personal one. The late kure was a compatriot and I happen to belong to the class of former governors of 1999; from that club I became the Vice President and I remember his role as far as that club was concerned; he was one of the youngest but then one of the most moderating influence on all of us.”
The Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, who spoke on insurgency plaguing the country said, “Fighting terrorism is not a thing that can end in one day; the government will restore life back to the North Eastern part of the country.”
He said, “A lot of progress have been made in the country against insurgency. We have put mechanisms in place to stop them even though there are sporadic attacks here and there. That will not stop us from doing what we are doing to ensure that lives are protected.”
Those on the Senate President’s team were former Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako; Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu; former Governor of Ebonyi State, Senator Sam Egwu and others.

    Why federal government fail to address the problem that made nigeria fall under dehomonising condition. It’s so, becouse the authority refuse to provide some team that help the administration forward. Such as team of political scientics that guard and addrest the administration on a right path politically, cos any administration is manage by political scientics absolutely, acuracy and precise. If government refuse to do so, stresse must cover the system permanently. If refuse to change. And also government must provide economicts team and rest for the nation building. For the part of unemployment it is a mere expression, becouse the government don’t know how to solve the problem. The Npower is not the solution untle the government made them a eternal workers. So, by doing that the people belief that the government are ready to solve the jobless graduate. Or government use N power graduate to fil them with the position you fund hold by non employment mean ‘ghose workers’. Or if any government agencies, parastatals, commissions, ministries, and rest want employ workers from Npower if government want addrest the problem and the only path the followers engage in government work. Just like single treasury account introduce by the government. And also, urge government to assent the peace corps and nat-force to be full control by the government authority. If he government agree to do this sure, they can solve and addrest the problem of unemployment. For security issue the government achieves something especially in the north east ‘sanbissa forest’. In the part of south-south the govt fail to addrest the problem of evengers. I will stop next time i will publish again till govt addrest the problem that made nigerian people fall under hard condition.Comment…
