Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, has been characterized as a greedy man who can compete for a position with God by Nigerian Catholic priest Rev. Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, who is currently stationed in the Gambia.
The pastor, a fervent backer of Peter Obi of the Labour Party for president, stated one of the reasons he cannot back Atiku in a post on his verified Facebook page on Thursday.
Fr Kelvin described how Atiku has switched from one political party to the other, lamenting how the former vice president persisted to run for the position of leader of the country after failing numerous times.
“Even to become governor of his State in Adamawa, Atiku contested four good times before he finally won in 1999.
“Then surprisingly, Obasanjo picked him as vice president, one would have thought he will stay in his State and do all he has been voted for, after all, he has been campaigning for many years to be governor… but as greedy as he is always, he ditched the governorship position, he did not even wait to be inaugurated, he ran to Aso Rock to become vice president.
“Even as vice president, he could not do his work, because he wanted the position of his boss, the president.
“Atiku’s biggest problem is greed. If Atiku is allowed to context against God, he will”, he added.
