A coalition of Nigerian youths has thrown its weight behind Atiku Abubakar as a presidential candidate in the coming general election.
The Chairman of the Youths group, Comrade Tongak Joseph, in a communique after a meeting in Jos, said the youths aligned with the ambition of the former vice president due to his doggedness and pragmatic leadership that has impacted Nigerians positively on.
The youths are positive that Atiku will right the wrong of President Muhammadu Buhari, who has failed to address security challenges, economic turbulence, and poverty ravaging the country.
“The youth committee is to galvanize support to our father, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, to champion Atiku’ Abubakar for his presidential bid on 2023.
“The youths committee will soon commence on tour to appeal to respected party leaders and elders across the country to support Atiku’ Abubakar for his presidential ambition in the interest of Nigeria and vibrant youths of this country.”
The group noted further that the country would be better if Atiku assumed the number one seat. It added that the future of Nigerians could not be left in the hands of APC and described the President Muhammadu Buhari led government as lopsided, which Atiku will curb.
“Atiku Abubakar’s credentials as a strong believer in uniting Nigeria and his commitment to democracy and good governance, and as an experienced man, he will revitalize the economy, alleviate poverty, eliminate corruption and build a strong united and stable country.”
“Insecurity, economic and political problems had heightened ethnic awareness and religious fundamentalism, leaving Nigeria constantly threatened with disintegration outside the country.”
