The All Progressive Congress (APC) has berated Atiku Abubakar, former vice president, over his letter to the National Assembly, asking it to stop future loan request by the current administration.
Reacting during a chat with newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, Yekini Nabena, APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, said Atiku has lost his sense of economic importance.
“We are not disturbed by former vice president Abubakar Atiku’s letter to the National Assembly, because he has lost his sense of economic importance.
Nabena argued that unlike the administration of the former vice president that took loans with nothing to show for it, the ruling party has “physical proofs” of all loans it has undertaken.
“The present administration is not like that of the PDP. They took loans and put the projects only on paper with nothing to show for the loans,” he said.
“As the one in charge of the privatization programme during the PDP administration, Atiku had nothing to show for all he did then.
“They started the railway project only on paper. But with this administration, there are physical proofs of what we are using the loans for.
“Every Nigerian can see the railway system. People can see what we are doing and what we have done with all the loans taken with what is physically on ground.
“We are not ready to join issues with him because he is just trying to look for relevance. Don’t forget an election is by the corner again.
“We don’t want to talk too much about him because he has lost his sense of economic importance. Atiku is only looking for relevance where he has none.”
