Jubilation!!! Nationwide Standing Ovation As Atiku Abubakar Delivers Very Fantastic Presidential Message, Set To Disgrace Buhari Out Of Aso Rock in 2019

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has weighed in on the recent report that a snake swallowed N36 million in a JAMB office, in Markurdi, Benue State.

Speaking at the Silverbird Man of the Year Award ceremony, Atiku said that Nigerians must kill those types of snakes, so that poverty can be eradicated from the country.

In his words: “We have to kill the snake of corruption that swallows the commonwealth that should lift our people up from poverty. Whether that snake is in a JAMB office or any other government office, we must kill it or it will kill us.

“Nigeria needs to be restructured. We must embrace restructuring as something that must be done to fix Nigeria’s broken systems, and not just a campaign gimmick that we fish out of our magic hats and deny after we have gotten what we want.

“We cannot spend 70 percent of our budget on recurrent expenditure at a time Nigeria has more unemployed or underemployed people than the entire population of the Republic of Cameroon.

“When I was in government, we reduced recurrent expenditure by introducing the Monetization Policy, and by privatizing many Government enterprises. Today, those policies have been abandoned and recurrent expenditures have ballooned.”

Speaking on the recent report by Transparency International, TI, which Nigeria ranked higher than in 2015 in terms of corruption, Atiku called on the government to go beyond sentiments and be factual.

He said: “We talk of fighting corruption, but let us move beyond sentiments and media trials, and look at the facts.”
