Kashim Shettima, vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has expressed that his party will retire Atiku Abubakar, standard bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to Dubai in 2023.
The former vice-president spent most his time in Dubai after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared President Muhammadu Buhari winner of the 2019 general election.
Speaking when he hosted the APC National Integrity Movement, a support group, in Abuja on Sunday, Shettima said Atiku is a “political tourist” who is only in the country every election circle.
The former governor of Borno stated that the PDP candidate does not have any achievements to boast of.

“Atiku Abubakar is like a father to me and I hold him in high esteem. But he is a political tourist who is only in this country’s electoral circle and we are going to retire him back to Dubai to go and relax,” he said.
“In every situation, for people to see your worth, they need to see your output at home. I am from the north-east – he is from the north-east.
“Atiku cannot point to three projects that he brought to the north-east or to Northern Nigeria for the eight years that he served as the vice president. He cannot show us three people that he has mentored,” Shettima asserted.
