Atiku made the claim while speaking during an interview with Voice of America, sharing an excerpt on Twitter on Sunday.
This was in response to claims that people also accused the PDP of corruption at the time it was ruling.
Atiku responded, “But we have come to realise that the the APC is even more corrupt than PDP.”
Asked how he will convince voters to support PDP again, he said, “Well, I will remind them of the prosperity that the PDP brought to the country between 1999-2007 and then also the poverty, the insecurity, the instability that the APC has brought to the country since they came into office.”
Atiku competent to address country’s woes – Expert
Meanwhile, a member of the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Team in Diaspora, Mr Soji Ogunade, has said that Atiku has the competencies and needed experience to attend to so many woes bedeviling the country.
Ogunade, in a statement made available to journalists over the weekend, revealed that of all that are jostling to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari next year May, Atiku stood shoulder high to deliver a more secure and prosperous Nigeria if voted into office.
The security expert said, “As the 2023 presidential election is about four months away, it is just good to draw the attention of Nigerians to the fact that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar remains the right choice.
“If we are looking for that politician and administrator par excellence that could help Nigeria navigate out of its present disheartening situation, it is PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“The indices of our current economic realities with prices of foodstuff reaching the rooftop, dollar exchanging for N900, hyperinflation, mounting insecurity and unemployment, abject poverty, hunger among the rest only confirm the failure of APC government. It has really been a retrogressive change
“In the face of all this confusion, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has all it takes to bring back the Nigeria of our dreams. He is quite versatile and dynamic. He has the experience, he operates his businesses in the country. He knows where the shoe pinches Nigerian. A very detribalised Nigerian, I see a new and prosperous Nigeria under Atiku’s leadership and so I enjoin Nigerians to cast their votes for him during next year’s presidential election”.
