Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State on Tuesday accused ex Vice President Atiku Abubakar of being obsessed with being the president of Nigeria.
According to him, Atiku is already gunning for the Presidency ahead of 2019 by cooking up innuendos against people working for the betterment of Nigeria.
“Alhaji Atiku is already running for 2019, and he thinks that he can make people like us collateral damage in his attempt to rejuvenate his image.
“This obsession for power inclined him to support the rebellion against the party that manifested in the National Assembly, and is continuing with obvious disrespect for the incumbent president.
“Everyone knows that I support and will continue to work for the success of President Muhammadu Buhari as he leads our country through tough times,” he said.
El-Rufai also said rather than calling names, Atiku should address corruption issues trailing him.
“Someone as obsessed with Nigeria’s presidency as he is, should clear up such matters conclusively. We wait to see how well he does with that,” he added.
