Presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cannot fix Nigeria, leader of the Northern Elders Forum has stated.
Professor Ango Abdullahi said APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu and PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar have been in the political circle for so long that he is not convinced that they do not have the magic wand to save Nigeria.
“We still haven’t got the man who we think will fix Nigeria. What we have on ground is not good enough. How can you look at Tinubu and Atiku to say they are the ones who will fix this country?
“They have been on the ground for the last 25, 30 years and so on. What have they done? What are we looking for? I was the one who encouraged a technocrat to join this consensus. You probably had seen Mohammed Hayatu Deen in the group of people going around looking for a consensus arrangements in PDP. I was one of those who encouraged him. We haven’t got the materials on the ground unfortunately,” Prof. Abdullahi told Vanguard in an interview published on Monday.
