Atiku not destined to be President – Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has said former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar was never destined to rule Nigeria.

He made this disclosure at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday while reacting to the Peoples Democratic Party candidate’s rejection of the election result.

“It borders on arrogance that our future is tied on this presidency. Atiku is destined never to be president of Nigeria,” Oshiomhole stated.

“Leadership is about character. Atiku’s desperation is so obvious, so desperate that in 2003, he challenged his own boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo, not to do a second term.”

Abubakar’s fourth attempt to clinch the presidency was dashed in the just concluded presidential election when the incumbent president, Muhammadu Buhari was announced as winner.

He has said he will not accept the result of the election, because the process was not fair and is seeking legal redress in court.

Oshiomhole said Saturday’s election “was a referendum between a man of ‘integrity’ and a man of doubtful ‘integrity’ and Nigerians have made their choice”.

He urged the PDP flagbearer to accept his defeat, insisting that the APC’s victory was well deserved.

Oshiomhole narrated how his party men collected dollars from former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, before the 2015 presidential election, but ended up giving the party’s ticket to Muhammadu Buhari, who later won the election.

The former Edo state governor during the press conference, which came just a day after the one called by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate, on Wednesday, bashed Atiku for moving from party to party, since 2007.

“He joined us in Lagos, rolled out the dollars, and President Muhammadu Buhari had to say to APC people, myself inclusive: ‘I have no dollars to give. I do not have Intel or Itel [sic]; I do not have foreign account, and even if I have, I will not give. All I offer is all my heart.

“The APC guys who couldn’t resist Atiku’s dollars collected those dollars, and voted for Buhari as our candidate.”
