COP28: Atiku fires Tinubu over ‘Owambe’ trip to Dubai

President Bola Tinubu has continued to receive flaks over Nigeria’s bloated delegation to the COP28 Climate Change Summit  in Dubai, the United Arabs Emirate, UAE.


This time, Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate, of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised the president and he accused him of  misconstruing the summit, which was meant to find ways of improving lives, clean air and water and healthy food for all people, nature, a safe and secure future, and turning it into an ‘Owambe’ all-comers jamboree with his large entourage.


Atiku said in a statement by his spokesman, Paul Ibe, that President Tinubu did not understand nor appreciate the enormity of the economic ruin that Nigeria is facing due to his failed economic policies.

“How will the head of a government turn a conference of climate change to a jamboree, all-comers and ‘owambe’ party of over 1,400 delegates? It is ridiculous and a confirmation that he is still in a slumber as far as governance is concerned,” the statement read.
“The economic dire straits that Nigeria is facing demand that its leaders cut their coats according to the cloth available. It makes no sense for us to continue to borrow money to throw a street party outside the country.


“The leader of the Nigerian delegation should be reminded: COP28UAE is about improving lives, about clean air and water, healthy food, for all people, for nature, for a safe and secure future, and not for a jamboree of over 1,400 Owambe delegates.”
