Nigeria's Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar today has urged the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to swallow his pride and heed to the advice of others as Nigeria slips into its worst recession in 33 good years. Atiku Abubakar, said on his Twitter handle that the president should accept his limitations and do things differently this time around. The fomer vice president added that he received the news of the country’s second recession “with a heavy heart.”

He noted that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, a second recession could have been avoided through disciplined and prudent management of the country’s economy. Atiku Abubakar decried a situation where the federal government increases the cost of goods and services that affect masses and average Nigerians, while its officials live in luxury and refuse to cut down on their expenses. He warned the government against further borrowing for anything other than essential needs.

Atiku Tweeted:

 “I urge the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to swallow its pride, and accept its limitations, so that they can open their minds to ideas, without caring who the messenger is. “Because this (recession) could have been avoided had this administration taken heed to patriotic counsel given by myself and other well-meaning Nigerians on cutting the cost of governance, saving for a rainy day and avoiding profligate borrowing.”


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has given a hint on why its governors visited former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan. APC said being a platform for progressives, it was taking steps “to consolidate on its national appeal and acceptance”. Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, disclosed this in a statement today while mocking the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Earlier, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had noted that leaders of its rival met Ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, because they realised and have admitted he did well in office. Taunting the opposition as “rattled and disoriented”, Nabena said the state executives’ trip to the former Bayelsa State Governor was not a big deal. He said;

“At a time when the PDP and its leadership is grappling with a crisis of confidence, one would expect the failed opposition to focus on picking itself up”,

Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni led the delegation to Jonathan. On his entourage were Governors Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Badaru Abubakar (Jigawa), David Umahi (Ebonyi), among others. The stalwarts met Goodluck Jonathan one day after a parley with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja.
