Atiku's comments were made on the Hausa service of the Voice of America (VOA).
On the program, Atiku bitterly complained that he's been sidelined by the APC led administration at the center which he contributed to enthroning.
“Honestly speaking, I’m still a member of the APC; I was part of all the processes, including campaigns until success was achieved,” Atiku was quoted as saying.
“But sadly, soon after the formation of government; I was side-lined, I have no any relationship with the government, I’ve not been contacted even once to comment on anything and in turn, I maintained my distance. They used our money and influence to get to where they’re but three years down the lane, this is where we are.”

Atiku's comments arrive just hours after a Minister in Buhari's cabinet, Aisha Alhassan, said the former Vice President is her godfather and blessed his 2019 presidential ambition.
"Atiku is my godfather even before I joined politics,” she said.“And again, Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019.
“Let me tell you today that if Baba said he is going to contest in 2019, I swear to Allah, I will go before him and kneel and tell him that ‘Baba I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to serve your government as a minister but Baba just like you know I will support only Atiku because he is my godfather. If Atiku said he is going to contest.
“If because of what I said, I am sacked, it will not bother me because I believe in Allah, that my time has elapsed that is why…"

Atiku's and Alhassan's comments point to the succession and power battles behind the scenes, within the governing APC.
Atiku has never hidden his intention to become Nigeria's president. He lost the 2014 APC presidential primary contest to Buhari and has swapped political parties in a bid to realising a lifelong ambition.
Buhari who is battling an undisclosed ailment, has not ruled himself out of another presidential run in 2019--the year his first term elapses.

No more Hause president,those guys are clueless. As for me,i am all for Biafra,but if we are still together in 2019,i will go for an Igbo or Yoruba President,as for the minorities,we have seen with GEJ that they suffer from inferiority complex and can easily be pushed around. Peace can only reign when we put partisan politics aside and vote with our hearts to chose someone that can save the imminent demise of our country.

I will try in as much as possible to mind my words, but Atiku should shut up and go back to Adamawa and his people and try to touch the lives of the ordinary man down there.
You've just clearly showed that what you are interested is what's coming to youme and not what will benefit Naija.
 So once again I say shut up and never you utter any words again.
