A former Vice-President and All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar, has said Nigeria is the primary interest of the APC not personal interest and so he is committed to support the interest of his party.

He had posted on his Twitter page that he is committed to support whichever candidate that the party would eventually chose as the Presidential candidate.

Meanwhile the erstwhile Vice President has in a recent interview briefed reporters on why Nigeria is not growing as expected.

According to him, most of the projects carried out by the Federal Government should have been handled by the state

He said, “The Federal Government is too powerful in Nigeria and has taken in more responsibilities than it is supposed to be. There is need to devolve powers to the state and if we move powers to the state government, we should also move resources alongside.

He said: “The Federal Government has no business handling projects in health, agriculture, employment and other sectors. I have always been saying this each time I have the opportunity.

“The Federal Government ought to be left with foreign policy, defence and monetary policy, so that the Presidency can be made less attractive to reduce the tension in the polity.”

Abubakar described the APC as “a strong and better organised” party to tackle poverty and rescue Nigerians from the sufferings brought by the PDP in the last 15 years.

He said, “Nigerians now have opportunity to make a change and this is the opportunity that should not be missed. Even Ghana, which is less in population to Lagos State had got the opportunity of having opposition winning election at the presidential level.

“Fellow Nigerians, this is the time we must have a change and it is a change we must have,” he implored.
