The Atiku Youth Coalition (AYC) has stated that the vast experience obtained over the years by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar sets him apart from other candidates and puts him in a better stead as the next president of Nigeria.
National President of the group, Bashir Abdulrahman, who stated this at a press conference in Abuja, said Atiku possessed the requisite qualities needed to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari, and as well as restore Nigeria to its past glory.He also stated that the AYC sees the former Vice President as a politician who does not discriminate and always in the look-out for young, intelligent and smart Nigerians to support.
He said: “Atiku is an experienced politician having been a vice president in the past, and also as a successful businessman. He understands the nuances of the economy and this is what the country needs right now.“A leader with such characteristics is what Nigeria needs at this moment. It takes people like Atiku to fix the problems Nigerians are facing under this current administration.”
Abdulrahman, therefore, urged every Nigerian to mobilise support for Atiku to first of all clinch the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and also implored every delegate from across the board to see Atiku as the best candidate.He further stated that the AYC is tasking the PDP on the importance of settling for the right man, especially now that the party would be going to the elections as an opposition.
According to him, no effort should be spared to eliminate errors capable of working against the interest of the party.“Despite all efforts to tarnish his image, Atiku remained unindicted as all the allegations against the aspirant had been proven to be baseless. As one of founding members of the PDP, Atiku deserves to lead the party and the entire nation to the promise land,” he stressed.
Also, National Secretary of the group, Felicia Onazi, urged support for Atiku, stating that he has the capability of reviving country.Chief Mobiliser of the group, Simon Eleazer, who spoke in the same vein, said Atiku is the only aspirant that knows how to employ and govern
