The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar, has said President Muhammadu Buhari is not “a full-fledged Fulani man because he cannot speak Fulfulde.”
Atiku, who stated this on Monday at a campaign rally in Jigawa, described President Buhari as ‘fake’ Fulani man.He said: ”a real Fulani man would not drag his followers into extreme poverty like what is happening under the APC administration”.
Atiku was in Jigawa to solicit for support from the electorate to unseat the incumbent next month.He promised to execute three projects for Jigawa if elected president in next month’s presidential election.
He said the projects, as requested by a former governor, Sule Lamido, include the dredging of Hadejia river valley; construction of Gaya-Jahun to Kafin Hausa road and the construction of Kwanar Dumawa to Babura road.
In his remarks, Lamido urged Jigawa electorate to vote for Mr Abubakar, saying the 2019 election is ”between competence and incompetence, genuine civilian candidate (Atiku) and and fake civilian candidate (Buhari).”
