Jonathan Failed As President Because He Is Not Qualified And Lacks Experience – Atiku

Atiku AbubakarFormer Vice President Atiku Abubakar has linked President Goodluck Jonathan’s poor leadership quality to his lack of experience.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirant also said Mr. Jonathan was not qualified to lead Nigeria as a president.

He made these assertions while addressing delegates of the APC primaries in Jos on Tuesday at his residence.

The former vice president recalled that Mr. Jonathan was forced into office and did not willingly contest the 2011 elections.

He pointed out that President Jonathan had fallen short of ideas to govern Nigeria, considering the prevailing security situation.

“Today, we are suffering all forms of issues as a country, because we have someone on board, who was not qualified to vie for the presidency, that is why he is doing what he is doing, because he did not seek for the position he is occupying”, Mr. Abubakar said.

He said he was contesting the February 2015 presidential election to correct the wrongs in Nigeria.

“Of all those contesting the 2015 presidential election in Nigeria, I am the most qualified,” he said. “I served Nigeria eight years as vice president in a democratic government; who among them has done such, and I am the most suitable. But I am not desperate. If I was desperate I should have supported (Olusegun) Obasanjo’s third time plan, but I rejected the idea, that was why the third term ambition could not succeed. If I did, all those in government today, where would they have been?

“Apart from this, I am one of those who fought tooth and nail for the return of democratic governance in Nigeria. Some persons lost their lives in the process. I rejected working in the military era. They offered me various appointments, but I turned them down”.

While promising to end insurgency if elected president, Mr. Abubakar promised to re-organise the armed forces through adequate training and funding.

“Once I am elected the president of this great country, I shall increase the numerical strength of the military, and will also equip them with modern and sophisticated weapons.

“I shall as well increase their pay and ensure they are given adequate training that will make them contain any form of attack from insurgents”, he promised.

He also used the occasion of the meeting with the delegates to appeal to APC members nationwide to support any candidate that eventually emerge the party’s presidential flag bearer to contest against President Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
