TonyeBarcanista:
I have been observing the recent moves by a former Vice President of Nigeria Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who is also a veteran aspirant for the office of the President. Atiku Abubakar has suddenly shifted from his subtle campaign for President to what seem to be like an almost direct campaign for the number one seat in the country. In the Social media, some sycophantic groups and individual with inspiration from their stomach have been making noise by endorsing the Turaki Adamawa-perhaps, with expectation of gratification "when the time comes".

While I am not against Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to exercise his right to aspire for the office of the President in 2019 or any office in Nigeria, I have the responsibility as a young man, a patriot and a youth leader in my own right to enlighten Nigerians and eligible voters about Alhaji Atiku Abubakar's candidacy (just like I would to any other aspirant for the office).

I shall give some reasons why Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is unfit to occupy the office he is aspiring for;

1. Lack of Integrity:
During the period when he was the Vice President of the country, Atiku was appointed to chair the Petroleum Technology Development Fund by the President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. As Chairman of Petroleum Training Development Fund(PTDF), Atiku lodged over $30million and $164 in Trans International Bank and Equatorial Trust Bank respectively from the account of PTDF according to EFCC's forensive indictment in 2006. In fact, 'loans' that yielded interest as high as 15% to the banks were collected from the said banks by Atiku and his proteges AFTER PTDF millions of dollars has been lodged with the illegal account. It was all business! When the deal was busted in 2006, Atiku simply said that he 'kept the monies for safe-keeping' and even claimed that he deserves commendation. He brought back the PTDF "capital" that he put in private account and benefited hugely from it.

Atiku Abubakar was indicted by EFCC, Senate, and a Presidential Committee. He is yet to clear his name. As usual, a court that he went to never discussed whether he was innocent or guilty, but simply said the FG Committee lacks power to investigate and indict Atiku Abubakar because they weren't courts. You may look these for reference. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/6402241.stm

www.saharareporters.com/2007/02/28/breaking-news-ptdf-scandal-senate-indicts-obj-atiku-impeachment-motion-looms

It is a shame that we are in a country where we forget easily. Otherwise, how could sane Nigerians be asking for Atiku's Presidency when Nigerians in unison were asking for him to come out clean as for back as 2006.

Apart from the PTDF, Nigerians are yet to understand how Alhaji Atiku Abubakar from a humble background became an extraordinary billionaire despite the fact that most of his productive adult life was spent in the Nigeria Custom Service.

There is also an indictment on Atiku in the USA, I am yet to see him take up the challenge to take a trip to the United States as requested by exPresident Olusegun Obasanjo in 2014.

2. Tribal Supremacism:
One of the challenge of President Buhari's administration is that he is more aligned with his brothers in the north than with the rest of the country, hough Buhari has never hidden where is primary loyalty lies (his north). While many think Atiku is detribalised (we can only be patriotic and not detribalised anyway), the bare truth is that Atiku is a northern supremacist that believe that his northerners should always align with their own. Unlike Buhari, Atiku is pretentious about his- but his sin shall find him out.

In 2010, in their bid to stop Goodluck Jonathan from seeking the ticket of PDP in the 2011 Presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, Aliyu Gusau, Gen IBB and Bukola Saraki(now Senate President) all submitted themselves to Adamu Ciroma led Northern Political Leaders Forum to come up with a consensus NORTHERN candidate to upstage Southern Goodluck Jonathan. Atiku was eventually chosen as the eventual "northern candidate" over Saraki, who wasn't considered "northern enough" by the Ciroma led Forum. Atiku led a campaign in the north that he christened "Naka Sai Naka" meaning "Northerners go for your own".

The record is there for all to see http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-12193681

3. Insincerity And Deception:
Atiku is a very wealthy man no doubt, but of late we have seen a picture of him drinking sachet water aka pure water. When did Atiku start drinking such? Who is he trying to deceive? We won't forget the N40 sacthet Milo/tea gimmicks that the Buhari campaign employed to deceive gullible Nigerians into believing that he was a "poor man". We won't forget the "akara" frying stunt of Mrs Aisha Buhari during the electioneering period in 2015. We should realise that when politicians are desperate, they take to any act just to impress and deceiving the gullible into giving them their votes. #NeverAgain should we be falling for such. It amounts to deception in the part of the elite to continue to use such gimmicks.

Also, Atiku has been making case for federalism and stuffs, but in ALL his years in Aso Rock as VeePee, he never initiated nor suggested such. In fact, Atiku was a very powerful VeePee between 1999 and 2003, as he was in charge of home-front while Obasanjo was travelling the world, yet he never thought of any pro-Federalism/restructuring policy. It is true that he fought against the third term agenda of Obasanjo, but we all know that he did it so that he can be able to succeed the president in 2007- he didn't do it for Nigeria.

4. What Does He Have To Offer That He Can't Suggest To Incumbents?
Atiku is part of the political system in Nigeria. In 1993 he ran for President, but lost to MKO Abiola in the Social Democratic Party primary election. In 2007, he ran for Presidency under Action Congress, but lost to Umaru Yaradua of PDP, and coming behing ANPP's General Buhari. In 2011 he ran for Presidency and lost to Jonathan in the contest for PDP ticket. In 2014, he ran again but lost to Muhammadu Buhari in the APC primary, coming behind second placed Rabiu Kwankwaso. Now he is eyeing 2019! What is Atiku looking for after serving as Vice President for eight years? What did he forget in the villa that he wants to go back to get?

Atiku is already 70, he will be 73 in 2019, he is not an outsider of the system (like the American Trump), what does he have to offer that he couldn't offer as VeePee? What stops him from sharing his "developmental" ideas to the incumbents since 1999 (considering that he was always in the incumbent parties)? What stops Alhaji Atiku from grooming younger, smarter and intelligent politician for the plum job?


Like I said earlier in my first paragraph, I am not against the right of Atiku to seek office, but I am against the idea of him becoming President. Nigeria cannot afford to continue to rotate failures and grannies. We need generational shift in leadership, we need to retire the system elite and bring him visionaries in 2019.

Nigeria has to be great for our own good, and we must make it great!

Nigeria and Nigerian are serious case study. That's why I called this country "Fuji House of Commotion" too many drama unfolding everyday, no still action. Action, like this man or that person has been found guilty and sentenced to a jail term or death. All we hear is stories! Chai....so help us God in this country.
Imagine,"Now he is eyeing 2019! What is Atiku looking for after serving as Vice President for eight years? What did he forget in the villa that he wants to go back to get?"

This guy has nothing to offer, this guy wants to consolidate his greed and re write corruption in another form. This man is part of our problem, we should do away with him. Where are the youths of this country? If nobody will put my name forward then I will do it myself rather than to vote or suggest name like "Atiku" for presidency!

There are vibrant youths, intelligent and articulated ones among us where do we want to recycle a dead and useless product of no value.

Nigerian youths owes this country of ignoring this old forsaken men,they have nothing to offer. But you and I, can offer this country a whole lots of things if only we can hold our ground and speak with one voice.

The revolution to take back this country from these dirty forsaken cabal starts now. You must not allow yourself to be used or bride to vote for any of these retired and certified thieves, nothing will come from them rather something from us. They are closer to the grave than you and I. All they want now is what they can take home for their children yet unborn and the only way to do so is to steal, Rob and embezzle public funds.

Nigerian youths, we need to think, please.
Great People,One Nation, Nigeria will be great again, it depends on you and I.

God bless u sir. This is what I am advocating for

That is your personal opinion & you are entitled to it. Atiku is more de-tribalised than PMB. No candidate is perfect but among many evil men we can pick a better one. I think I prefer Atiku to PMB. PMB has no solution to Nigeria's problem though his fight against corruption is good but it is lopsided. He is too committed to northernisation agenda as if southerners offended him before. They used SW to get power but since that road appeared closed they are now thinking of using SE. Let's see how that works out with his clamp down on Biafra agitators. We don't know but he may deceive them that he will work for their independence once re-elected. Politicians promise anything to get power after all the same PMP promised 3,000,000 jobs within a year, naira to be at per with the dollar & that a litre of pms will sell for 40 naira. To me, deceiving voters to get power & stealing of government funds are all acts of corruption. QED.

Im not concerned about your personal choice to switch sides, that is a prerogative of anyone in the electorate. McCain respected that independence and did not actively persuade his constituency to view Trump the same way he perceived the then candidate. I am alarmed that you label yourself youth leader, in my view promoting a brand, and then using that notion to persuade and bring a following behind you..."herding"!

You can make personal switches to serve your individual interest without any contention . Be mindful of your persuasion, the gathering herd and the effect of you, as a branded youth leader, exercising a switch to the opposition. You might not see a problem with it, they will.


The idea Im trying to convey in that picture is the dynamism of party politics and zoning for the forseeable future.

That is the picture of our living leaders post civil war. Murtala, Abacha and YarAdua are not shown simply because they can no longer influence decision in our polity. All three are from NW zone. There is no leader, dead or alive, from NE and none from SE....post civil war! In fact we have never had a leader from NE, pre or post war!
Sooner or later we will be led into yielding for NE to take power, deputized by SE.

Before this can materialize an enabling arrangement needs to be in place. We will get a sneak peek, next Saturday in Ondo, into the intrigues of how everything else we've known will reshuffle and settle into a forecast for 2019 and 2023.

Ibadan is the seat of Yoruba political thrust and force but Ondo is the place where we are reminded of our democratic rights and purpose.
Ondo has always been a hot bed of political opposition to the regimental order issued forth.

In the days of Kiriji Ogedengbe disrupted the political order. In the 60s Agbekoya farmers cooperative disrupted the status quo. In the 70s and 80s Omoboriowo defied Awoism and challenged the order. In the 90s Fasoranti and others came out with Afenifere and OPC and re-purposed democracy. All these started in Ondo. In the 2000s Ondo defied the order again and remained the only Yoruba State outside the grip of ACN influence. Ondo shapes outcome in Yorubaland. Yorubas take the input from Ondo and molds into a strategy for political investment in Nigeria. Pay attention to next Saturday, the outcome will be translated into a formative plan for Yoruba engagement in 2019.

If Yoruba disengages from APC this will make PDP happy. The Senate and NorthEast will be the two pivotals they use to weaken Buhari and El Rufai and snatch power for candidate Atiku.

Atiku will do anything to become President. He does not believe in restucturing but he is giving it lip service. He will support Biafra secession if he can get their vote.

Sorry for bringing Yoruba into focus here, I could not give you the picture of Atiku and 2019 without saying his candidacy is hopeful of a diminished support for Buhari in SW, which may or may not come to fruition in the aftermath of Ondo exercising a catalyst enext Saturday.
I get your point but it is interesting to know that Atiku can't be elected President with just SE votes, assuming they give him full support. But this is not the case! Sycophants are out to leech him and fooling him into believing that people want him.

The PDP have aspirants gunning for the office, from Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe state(Northeast) to former Jigawa state Governor Sule Lamido. Atiku flying the ticket will polarise the party! Beside, he is not a PDP man at the moment.

If. the new party that they said is coming should field Atiku, that party is as good as dead. FACT!

On Ondo, the result next Sunday will be interesting

By 2019 it is either Atiku or my hero Goodluck Ebele Jonathan returning for the Presidency seat. One Atiku or GEJ is far better that a million gworo chewing ajala kunu drinking dullard leading us without an WAEC Certificate sad

You mean in a country of over 150 million people that this are the only options we have? Na wa o.we truly need to change the primary process and let the people vote for who wins the primaries in each party as opposed to leaving it in the hands of the party insiders.

Well,I think it cut across the entire country. Most youth lack a voice of their own. They lack logical reasoning, you only hear them when it comes to tribal bashing and other irritating hate speeches.
