Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari's administration over what he alleged as his dismal performance in office.
President Buhari was not forthcoming in mentioning the name of the senior member of the party that resigned, it was apparent that he was referring to the former Vice President who was the latest senior member of the APC to have dumped the party.
During the inauguration in Abuja, Mr. Buhari, while making routine greetings before his remarks, turned to the national chairman of the APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, and said "accept my sympathy for losing a senior member of your party".
It would be noted that since Abubakar dumped the ruling party, both the President and his spokesperson have avoided comments on the matter.

As the race for the 2019 general election gradually builds up, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has said to realise his presidential ambition he will work with everyone including his erstwhile boss, former President Olusegun Obasanjo. Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, who is an ardent supporter of the President, told reporters at the presidential villa that the former Vice President poses no threat to the reelection bid of Buhari.
Buhari and his spokesmen had avoided speaking on Atiku's exit since the news broke on Friday.
A former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, on Monday said the resignation of Atiku from the APC and his expected defection to the Peoples Democratic Party was the beginning of the defection of a large number of APC members to the PDP.
He said: "With Atiku, the party will carry more weight and more people will also troop in".
