Atiku spoke while addressing the Nasarawa State Working Committee and delegates of the PDP in Lafia, the state capital. When asked to comment on the alleged rift between him and Obasanjo, Atiku said he had no problem with the former President.
“I don’t have any problem with former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, but if he says he has a problem (with me) that is his problem,” Atiku said.
Atiku also said it was improper to describe Nigerian youths as lazy people who only needed free money. According to him, available records have proved Nigerian youths to be excellent sportsmen and women, astute businessmen and women, among others.
“If elected President of Nigeria, I will restructure Nigeria by empowering the youth, eradicate hunger and poverty, as well as fight insecurity,” he stated.
