Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has decried what he described as “the current disunity, ethnicity, division and religious intolerance, promoted by the government of President Buhari”, noting that such was quite dangerous for the continued survival and oneness of the country.

Atiku made the lamentations at a public event in Lagos on Wednesday adding that it will take a man of experience to deliver this country from the current situation.

He added that PDP may take the control of 25-27 states in the 2019 elections.

He said, “The country is in its worse state today. I have never seen it since the civil war. Ethnic division, north against south, this is very dangerous for our survival as a country.

“We must do all what we can to address this situation. We have to unite together to arrest this, otherwise you would one day wake up and find out that we don’t have a country, God forbid.

“We may end up with 25-27 PDP states in Nigeria, because every part of this country is fed up with this government. And this is the most intolerant government I have ever seen in this country. And unfortunately for us, he was not even part of this struggle.The situation in APC states is horrible. You cannot even meet like this. They are intolerable because they were not part of the struggle for actualization of democracy. If PDP was like this, there would not have been any opposition party in this country”.

“Let us therefore unite and make sure that we free this country and our people from this situation. The political restructuring of this country is inevitable, whether we like it or not.

“We must deploy resources and powers to the federated units of this country. If states and Local Government Areas are given more resources and powers, the people would hold them accountable”.

Nigerians would need to support a candidate with the qualities, capacity, experience and the qualification to face the challenges. To actualized this, Atiku said,“I can do that job, but only with your support”.
