The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it will not glorify former Vice President Abubakar Atiku because he has lost his sense of econmic importance and out of tune with current realities.
Reacting to a letter Atiku wrote to leadership of the National Assembly not to approve further loans for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, APC’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary , Yekini Nabena, told The Nation on phone the former Vice President was only looking for relevance by his letter.
According to Nabena: “We are not disturbed by former Vice President Abubaksr Atiku’s letter to the National Assembly, because he has lost his sense of economic importance.
“The present administration is not like that of the PDP. They took loans and put the projects only on paper with nothing to show for the loans.
“As the one in charge of the Privatization programme, during the PDP adiministration, Atiku had nothing to show for all he did then.
“They started the railway project only on paper, but with this administration, there are physical proofs of what we are using the loans taken for..
“Every Nigerian can see the railway system. People can see what we are doing and what we have done with all the loans taken with what is physically on ground.
“We are not ready to join issues with him, because he is just trying to look for relevance, because election is by the corner again.
“We don’t want to talk too much about him because he has lost his sense of econmic importance. Atiku is only looking for relevance where he has none,” Nabena maintained.
