Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has been speaking about a range of topical issues lately.
Some political pundits have also accused him of playing to the gallery so he can get the sympathy of the electorates when he makes his presidential ambition public.
One thing you cannot take from the former Vice President, is his choice of issues that he wades in on.
Atiku has spoken on the following salient issues.
1. Corruption: The former Vice President while speaking with the editorial team of Zero Tolerance, a quarterly publication of the EFCC, told the world that he is not corrupt, adding that all the allegations against him have not been proven.
2. Boko Haram: Atiku Abubakar said he would have dealt with the menace of the terrorists if he was President.
3. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs): The ex-VP also told his friends and well-wishers not to take out paid adverts to wish him a happy birthday. He told them to donate the cash to IDPs.
4. Education: Atiku recently said education at the primary and secondary level should be made to be free and compulsory.
Meanwhile, the outspoken and fearless Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai does not seem to agree with Atiku’s claim that he is not corrupt.
The Kaduna Governor recently described the former Vice President as a liar and dared him to travel to the US if he is not corrupt.
