‘You’re like a quack doctor’ – Atiku accuses Tinubu of causing hardship with ‘shambolic’ policies

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, has accused President Bola Tinubu of trying to decimate Nigeria with hunger, economic hardship and poverty.


Atiku, who stressed that Nigeria is in a dire situation, likened Tinubu to a quack doctor trying to treat a cancerous patient.


In a statement by his Media Aide, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku said: “The fallout of the shambolic policies of President Bola Tinubu-led APC administration is killing Nigerians even as there are no efforts to stem the tide.


“The unprecedented hunger, poverty, and hardship in Nigeria were part of Tinubu’s ultimate plan to decimate Nigerians and pauperise them until they have no shred of dignity left.


“Tinubu is like a quack doctor trying to treat a cancerous patient. But the quack doctor is likely to kill the patient even faster than the cancer itself.”


The former Vice president berated Tinubu for blaming ex-President Muhammadu Buhari for the current hardship.


“Rather than get to work, he continues to blame his predecessor, President Muhammadu Buhari, for handing him an empty treasury and a weak economy and the opposition for instigating mass protests.


“He talks as if Buhari was not a member of their diseased All Progressives Congress. He also forgets that his own kabukabu policies and its fallouts are what is instigating the mass protests across the country,” he said.


Atiku also accused Tinubu of playing politics with the appointment of ministers, stressing that most of them should not have been appointed.


He lamented that the President’s economic perspective was limited by the fact that he had surrounded himself with his “Lagos circle”, putting loyalty ahead of competence.


Atiku insisted that the President knew little about Nigeria’s economy and nothing about security or building a national economy.

  1. Atiku, I will never support you for president. But honestly supported your criticism. Because your 100% correct about tinibu govt and his policies and the situation Nigeria is in now.

  2. Atiku cannot convinced me with any of his outburst. It is easy to be a sideline critics and you can actually cut down a log of wood with mouth. This is someone who occupies Nigeria's 2nd Citizen's seat for 8 years and we must all reflect and remember his antecedent. The Politicians in this country always exploit the short memory of Nigerians and talk rubbish after few years they left office. Pot calling kettle black.
