Junaid Mohammed: Tinubu And Atiku Will Do A Better Job In Governing Nigeria Than Buhari.
Junaid Mohammed, a second republic lawmaker, has said that both Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar are better than President Muhammadu Buhari in terms of governing a country like Nigeria with its landmass and population. He said the country needs somebody who is economically literate to govern it and has the necessary knowledge of international affairs.
While speaking in a new interview, Junaid Mohammed added that the APC and the PDP chieftains were not nepotistic while in government.
In his words:
“Both Tinubu and Atiku are better than Buhari. In terms of governance of a country like Nigeria with its landmass and population, we need somebody who is economically literate to govern us. Secondly, we must have somebody who has the necessary knowledge of international affairs.
“In this day and age no country is an island no matter how big you are, you must learn to relate with other Countries.
“Tinubu has been a Governor while Atiku has been a Vice President under one of Nigeria’s most remarkable President though controversial.
“I think Tinubu’s problem will come if he wins the nomination and decide to pick somebody outside the North and a Muslim.
“In the case of Atiku, Northeast is essentially a war zone so conducting a campaign and election in such an area today is a challenge, but he has a history of being ruthless so he may pull it off but I don’t know.
“What I said is that any of them who emerges may face these challenges but I hope their strategies would not inflame the polity further than it is already.
“Any one of them who emerges as president would be better than Buhari I can tell you with all the force at my command.
“Neither Atiku nor Tinubu is a nepotist, none of them has the reputation of bringing their relations while in Government but in the case of Buhari every major appointment has the imprint of his cronies, friends, families, and to make it worse none of them has done well.”
