Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday, insisted that more people have died since President Muhammadu Buhari assumed power than those killed in “Iraq and Afghanistan” put together.
The Waziri of Adamawa said this while decrying the large-scale killings in some states in the country.
Addressing a large crowd in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, while declaring to run in the coming 2019 election, Abubakar said President Buhari’s government would be remembered more for its bloodshed than any development it brought to the country.
“Today, we are witnessing the most insecure atmosphere.
“More people died under APC than the people killed in Iraq and Afghanistan,” he said.
Abubakar also said he would reduce inflation and unemployment rate in the country, adding that Buhari has displayed a common lack of capacity when it comes to the issues that matter to citizens.
“Today, we have the highest unemployment rate in history of this country, more than one million of our youth are unemployed.
Abubakar further noted that, “Today, we are more divided than at any other time in Nigeria’s history.”
