Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, has said that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is a bloody nonentity who thinks he can become President of Nigeria by insulting fellow Northerners.
Mohammed said this in reaction to Abubakar’s statement at the weekend that anyone opposed to the current clamour for the restructuring of the nation is lazy.
Junaid, in an interview with the Sun newspaper yesterday, insisted that Atiku was part of the reasons the region was being vilified by southerners.
He said he came to that conclusion because an average southerner believed that northerners have made so much money through their positions in government and politics in the country.
“Atiku is a scoundrel and a bloody nonentity. He attained political limelight because the late Musa Yar’Adua put him there; today he wants to position himself as the leader of the north. But the north doesn’t give people of no consequence such position.
“His interest is not really about restructuring. He thinks by insulting the north, the same way we are being insulted by the south, that will give him presidency With this kind of attitude, he can’t be the president of Nigeria.
“He will hear from the north at the appropriate time. He is one of those making the south to abuse the north. He is angry because his monopoly in the oil servicing sector has been broken.
“His wealth will never buy him Nigeria’s presidency. The north is not for sale, Nigeria is not for sale. I pray God sees us beyond 2019, let him challenge me, if he ever becomes Nigeria’s president,” Mohammed fumed.
