Abubakar Atiku, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has told those traders ignored by President Muhammadu Buhari that he would care and make them his “priority.”
Mr Atiku, a former Vice President of Nigeria who won the ticket of the opposition party to challenge President Buhari in the February elections, tried to reassure the business people of his support after a tape of the Minister of Transportation stating the obvious aloofness of the President towards an onisha trader was leaked to the media.
“Three years of Buhari oo, everybody is crying, crying…pressmen are crying, farmers are crying, workers are crying, politicians are crying, students are crying, three years oo,” Rotimi Amaechi was heard saying in a tape version obtained by DENISAURUS News.
The minister who served as Governor of Rivers State from 2007 – 2015 and is now the Director-General of the Buhari / Osinbajo relection campaign claimed that despite the woes in the land, the 76-year-old Nigerian President who has been told not to seek a second term having failed to improve the economy and security conditions, is not hard of hearing.
“The president does not listen to anybody. He doesn’t care. You can write what you want to write. The president doesn’t care. Does he read?
“In fact, there was one case of somebody in Onitsha, a trader in Onitsha who couldn’t sell his goats during Sallah. And I was with Oga on the plane and the man was busy abusing Buhari. He said, ‘Amaechi, come, what is my business with Onitsha goat seller?’”
