It appears former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is in the mood of lashing out at the presidency.

Few hours after his much publicised verbal war with Vice President Yemi Osibanjo over restructuring, Atiku has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku expressed the fear that the 2019 presidential election may not be free with President Muhammadu Buhari, a retired military man, now leading the country.

He said unlike former President Goodluck Jonathan, who was in power during the 2015 general elections and was “much more level-headed” being a “peaceful, (and) very patriotic Nigerian,” the country was now dealing with “a retired general, (who is) very uncompromising, also power-drunk; (and) who will not be ready to leave power without a fight.

“The characters that are involved this time, as far as the leadership of this country is concerned, are different from 2015,” he said.

Atiku also asked Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to explain to Nigerians the decision by the Federal Government to share $322 million Abacha’s loot and also begged for a fresh $328 million loan from China.

The new loan is said to be for Information and Communications Technology development.

Atiku was reacting to Osinbajo’s response to his comments on the need to restructure Nigeria.

Atiku accused Osinbajo of not being coherent in his arguments, saying he was merely jumping from one topic to the other.
