A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has refuted claim of rift between him and ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Abubakar was Obasanjo’s deputy from 1999 to 2007.

For long, there has been insinuations in certain quarters of a face-off between both former leaders.

However, the Waziri of Adamawa yesterday said there was no serious issue of disagreement between him and his former boss.

Addressing reporters at the secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, Lokoja, Kogi State, he said there was never any serious disagreement between Obasanjo and him.

The PDP Presidential aspirant noted that all grey areas of disagreement would be addressed after getting the nomination of his party.

He accused APC of lacking prerequisite knowledge of the way to go about handling the economy, stating that his main target if given the mandate would be to open up the economy to attract foreign investment, thereby creating jobs for youths.

He expressed confidence that Buhari would hand over if the party loses the next election.

“Even though I know that President Buhari is not a democrat, I believe he will hand over if he loses,” he said.

On card reader, Atiku expressed confidence that the National Assembly would include it in the electoral law.
