Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has said that he is not a politician but a businessman.
The Turakin Adamawa disclosed this on Saturday via his Twitter account while engaging a citizen who had commended him for investing more in Nigeria than other politicians who “consume our commonwealth”.
Responding to the comment, the former Vice President tweeted, “I see myself as a businessman first. A politician in the true sense of the word, is not a businessman.”
