Atiku Attacks President Buhari Over Donation Of Nigeria's Funds To Another Nation

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has attacked President Buhari for saying he will donate the sum of $500,000 to Guinea Bissau, along with other materials. Atiku says Nigeria has been officially named as the world headquarters of extreme poverty, so why will any leader donate the resources left to another nation instead of using them to solve pressing domestic problems.

Atiku stated this in a statement issued by his media office in Abuja. He said, “Our response is to ask why a nation that has been officially named as the world headquarters of extreme poverty, will donate her resources to others instead of using them to solve pressing domestic problems?

“This is the same government that is so cash strapped that it has so far borrowed N13tn in three years.


 “How prudent is it to go about taking loans from whosoever cares and then turn around to give out the money when your own people are suffering the worst form of poverty?

 “We call on the Muhammadu Buhari administration to cut its coat according to its cloth. He should stop donating like Father Christmas. He should attend to the need of Nigerians”
