safarigirl:
this quote was heavily taken out of context in this write-up, and the reporter should be ashamed of himself.


I saw the post on Twitter yesterday morning, and the comment was addressing claims from APC that he was going to enrich his friends, he then responded "At least they say I will enrich my friends and not my family members..... "

But as is common with Nigerians, they swallow anything they see on Nairaland and fail to check other sources. I suppose we believe what we want to and ignore what we don't want to believe

Bloody liar! What was taken out of context? I watched the video and those were his exact words.

He even said " is it a crime for him to make his friends rich"?

At whose expense? Is it not him robbing the masses to enrich a few? The same PDP agenda for the past 16 years where their government was focused strictly on the elite.

PMB came and changed that status quo and his government has been focused on the poor masses while starving the rich. This is why the elite have ganged up against him because they are no longer getting the free monies as alluded by Atiku via his comment.

Atiku is a fraud and a thief and he will never be allowed near our nations wealth and the Presidency.

At least he is honest about this. No one should be surprised when NNPC is sold to his friends.

Just imagine the blatant effrontery and public declaration of Lootocracy!

Why will Atiku go on public TV and make such a foolish statement that if he becomes president he will “enrich his friends”? Which kind talk be dat?

If he had opened the statement longer by saying “I will enrich my friends, now who are my friends, my friends are you, you and you. My friends are 150 million Nigerians out there who deserve a 3-course meal, my friends are the Youths who deserve a well paid job after years in the University. My friend is every Nigerian who spend hours under the Sun to vote for a candidate and at the end of the day have nothing to show for it. My friend is Nigeria.”

But No, he won’t say this he’d rather showcase how foolish he could be. I am beginning to have a rethink on this man to be honest. I am not totally sure this man will be better than Buhari. This guy might sell Nigeria if empowered!

I’m glad someone is seeing what I’m seeing. Nigeria is in for it.

I pity the ever hopefuls and those whose daily lives depend on the incompetences of these agbada wearing people.

If this is the best the PDP can offer Nigeria at this very crucial time in the history of this Nation then it only means there is no hope for PDP.

The history of Atiku in governance has been about him thieving everything he was placed in charge of, from head privatization to PTDF. He is likened to a kleptomaniac.

Due process is a taboo when it comes to him and if he could brazenly loot recklessly under OBJ as a VP and cause over 66 of our national assets to go under then imagine what he would do in the ultimate position of President.

His core supporters are from the SE and not because they know he is better than Buhari but because they hate buhari enough to say ANYTHING BUT BUHARI including a thief like Atiku.

Some even went ahead to say that even if they showed them a video of Atiku robbing CBN they will still vote for him. They know he is a thief but would rather stand with him due to their hatred for Nigeria and Buhari.

You better have a rethink because Atiku the kleptomaniac is a hopeless choice especially since he could align with another thief in the person of Saraki

Sarakis leaked audio tape totally exposed why he boldly aligned with Atiku and is being very cooperative with him.

Saraki complained that he is not getting anything from PMB and that PMB has blocked everywhere (which is good for those lootocrats) and he went further to say ATIKU WILL OPEN UP EVERYTHING. That is their grand plan. To get their hands back on our common wealth and continue their looting as it has always been the PDP way.

Their government has always been for the elite, by the elite and of the elite which is why for 16 years of their rule the common man NEVER felt their impact unlike just under the 4 years of this government where the masses are fully involved and being focused on.

PDP is a joke

Atikulooted can't be trusted.

Who are his friends if not his family members?

Once beaten twice shy. His case is pending with international bodies and the record of his loots can't be forgotten in a hurry.

Atiku is just a continuation of the legendary corruption practices from the era of President Jonathan.

Unfortunately, oil prices are at a low this time around.
. So corruption in Nigeria started during the era of Jonathan? Hatred for Jonathan will send some of you to an early grave if you don't change.

Why should Atiku be talking about enriching his friends and not all Nigerias? I just don't get it. So our nation's wealth could be used just to enrich Atiku's friends alone. Sorry, I'm not with you on this one.

OBJ knows him better, and he said it all. Even though unfortunately now, same OBJ is backing him. But the truth remains that an Atiku led govt will be a looting spree for corrupt politicians.

Atiku just reaffirmed the rot in our system. My vote is going to now go to one of these 3rd party people. E better like that, my conscience will not allow me stab Nigeria in the heart again.

These so called nigerian leaders or wanna be leaders don't respect or have a realistic vision of the level nigeria should be.

Did you see Kenya in action today? - may God bless the innocent ones among those affected; I am sure the leaders were watching it with regular people eyes instead of learning things from it. Kenya has become the Germany of Africa - no too much chest beating but just doing; SA is already the USA of Africa; while Ghana is the UK of Africa; The way i see Nigeria is like the Kazakhstan of Africa.

Nigerians sit in Nigeria thinking our population is so much of an advantage so we act like we have already made it; meanwhile people that have made it like china, usa, and all these other great countries are still working as hard as beginners even more sometimes. We think our population makes us stronger if everybody show their body language, so we forget that one nice machine with a nice button can turn nigeria to a population of 1 or 2 or 3.

What do you know?

If you're abreast of situations surrounding the Presidency at that time you'd know corruption was a free for all. Almost everyone around him was looting the country dry. Even Doyin Okupe of all persons had a share of the free for all. You probably need to tell yourself the truth and halt being sentimental.

And you saying it started in the era of Jonathan was your own submission.

Even as a VP we know the extent to which he stole from the nation's treasury, that was when he wasn't the president o and didn't have unhindered access to the treasury. I am sure he will loot the entire country die if he becomes the president. Atiku is a thief, we should not vote for him

Now the fact that many poor suffering nigerians who are in the overwhelming majority will find no flaw in this unguarded outburst, instigated by desperation, but covertly reveals Atiku's main purpose for his presidential bid clearly shows the extent of both mental and leadership decay in nigeria. ...What am i even saying, i mean the man got accepted despite his criminal case in the US. I dont think any serious politician in nigeria would have boldly made this kind of statement in 1999 without some form of consequence. Now that is the level the present government has brought nigeria to. Gadamit!!! Such a bold display of malfeasance. Truly Nigeria has gone to the dogs. Criminals and murderers have a firm grip on the country. The people are still sleeping.

The kind of atikulooting that will happen in nigeria should this man win will never have been witnessed in the history of mankind.

Unfortunately for you, the elephant in the room isn't Atiku's corrupt past but the incumbent perceived incompetence.

Economic growth rate under his watch has been barely 1% yearly which isn't enough to create enough jobs for entering the labour force yearly.. The country needs to grow by 7% to achieve that.

From 1999 to 2013, the economy grew by 6.7% yearly despite high levels of corruption. Atiku said he appointed 7 PHD holders, that he preferred ploying people smarter than him.

Buhari's introduction of senseless econimic policies upon assumption of office was his Achilles heel. Even Lamido Sanusi was strident in condemning these policies and even advised his ministers to speak truth to power.

Buhari's has no one but himself to blames. People aren't ready for another 4 years of lamentable growth (Even the Abacha years were better). The man doesn't listen to anyone just as Amaechi said.

PMB blew his massive Goodwill away

No,because after investing humongous amount of money in 2015 to bring in APC,there is nothing to show for their investment. Ask anyone that has ever contest an election,then ,you will know, Money is KEY.He will enrich his friends that supports him been but not at the expense of the country.
