A former Secretary to the Government of Federation, Babachir Lawal has lambasted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the February 16 election.
Lawal described Abubakar as a ‘Facebook Politician,’ who was no match for President Muhammadu Buhari in the upcoming 2019 election.
Speaking with The Sun, the former SGF said Buhari will trumph over Abubakar in all aspects including height, looks and integrity.
He said: “Atiku is a Facebook politician. He gets all these smart boys and gives them laptop or smart phone and they write. They write anything they like. And then you go back and say ah, I am very, very popular or they organise bogus survey. Look, those who vote don’t have smart phones, they don’t have TV, and they just have in their minds that it is Buhari they want. The voter does not watch television.
“He doesn’t have time even if there is electricity in his village or even if there is GSM network in his village. He doesn’t have the money to buy data bundle. So, they are just deceiving people and just deceiving themselves, thinking that PDP has something and I think PDP, their campaign structure has disintegrated.
“Everywhere all over the country, if it is a matter of choice, you place Atiku side by side with Buhari, it is doubtful if anybody will pick Atiku. Is it experience? Buhari has more experience.
“He was head of state, Atiku was only vice president. Is it height? Buhari is taller. Is it looking fine? Buhari looks a fine man. So, whatever it is. Is it integrity?
“Whatever! There is no comparison at all. That simplifies the issues for us, the fact that it is a straight-forward choice before the voter. It is a straight choice between Atiku and Buhari. So, there is no comparison at all. There is none.”
