Presidency Aspirant and Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar has dismissed the threat made by the former president, Olusegun Obasanjo that he would never be president when he is alive, saying he is not God.
Speaking in a BBC Hausa programme monitored in Kaduna on Saturday, Atiku maintained that he was never disturbed when he heard that Obasanjo made such statements.
According to him, the former president is not God, saying, if it is the Will of God that I will be a president who can be challenged God’s Authority.
Atiku also shed more light on his controversial house which was alleged it was auctioned by the United States authorities, saying, the house in question was not his property but belonged to his wife.
According to him, ‘all my wives own houses and this particular house that people are talking about is not mine but belonged to one of my wives and she sold the house and was not auctioned as it has been reported.
He also disclosed the rift between him and Buhari attributing it to the inability of President Buhari to control issues in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“After 2015 general election, I met the president. I told him the activities of the party have been crippled and there is a need for restructure. Also, I advised the president on issues concerning his administration. I said to him, if things continued like this, I will quit, but Mr Buhari turned deaf ears and remained mum.
“If Nigerians can recall, we initiated the Economic and Financial (Crimes) Commission (EFCC). I’m the person that sourced from the takeoff funds for the EFCC.
“In this administration (Buhari’s), there are people that are untouchable, they are doing things that are not in order but they are being shielded by the government. If elected Nigeria’s president, my administration will not spare any personality. When I was in (at) the helm (of affairs), none of my relatives or friends was found wanting.
He also said that if he becomes president he will investigate the eight years the government used in fighting the insurgents saying, ‘ If elected Nigeria’s president, I will investigate how the government was unable to defeat Boko Haram. The federal government ended the civil war in 30 months but it is now 8 years it can’t defeat a group of boys who are not trained.
