Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has said that Nigerians need to brace up for the tough leadership that will be provided by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku also described Buhari as a good leader who might not necessarily be a politician in the ordinary sense of the word.

The former VP made the comments during a recent interview with Leadership Newspapers:

Excerpts below:

What is your relationship and personal knowledge of the president?

I have known him for a very long time now. When he was head of state during the military administration, I was still in the Federal Civil Service and I implemented some of his policies at that time as a civil servant. Since then, I have known him as an astute leader and a tough one for that matter and I think we should brace up for that kind of tough leadership.

Tough leadership, but politicians may not find that funny?

Well the point is that he is a leader, he may not be a politician but certainly he is a good leader and he can lead well. And that is all that you are looking for in politics.

What is your charge to Nigerians as the APC-led government takes over?

I will appeal with Nigerians to give APC a chance and like I said before, they should not expect miracles overnight because it's going to be a very daunting task since the APC government is taking over with such huge challenges all over the country. I will appeal to Nigerians to give APC a chance.
