… Says “I can match Buhari integrity for integrity”.
Presidential Aspirant under the platform of People’s Democratic Party PDP, Alhaji Kabiru Tanimu Turaki SAN, has, once again, expressed displeasure at the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying it is unfortunate that many people who marketed or bought into candidacy of Buhari on the basis of his supposed integrity and credibility are having buyers’ remorse
He added that it was because there are so many actions of his present government that contradict those two attributes.
Alhaji Turaki said this recently while interacting with journalists in his office, explaining that though many of Buhari’s previous supporters who marketed or bought into his candidacy because of his assumed integrity and credibility are disappointed, voters are still looking for candidates with genuine integrity and credibility who will additionally possess some critical qualities that Buhari obviously doesn’t have.
Turaki further said: “I can match Buhari integrity for integrity and credibility for credibility. I have what Buhari has – or is assumed to have – but he does not have what I have – my relative youth and the dynamism that comes with it, my sense of fairness, my being a bridge builder, my being cosmopolitan and my being well- educated.”
Speaking further, Turaki bemoaned the state of the nation, saying that it is because of the current circumstances of the country – increasing poverty, increasing despondency and increasing polarization of the society – that some people felt that he has those attributes that will meet the challenges of the current circumstances of the country and therefore persuaded him to run for President.
He concluded that he has decided to run on the PDP platform, after consultations with his family members, friends, associates across the country and battle ready to face the race squarely and win.
