Jonathan: Vote Atiku So We Can All Have Food To Eat / A Letter To Peter Obi By Meshack Katuka, Kaduna Ex Corper Who Served In Anambra / Kwankwaso Received By PDP Supporters In Anambra (Photos) (2) (3) (4)
|Why Northwest Should Vote Atiku, Obi, By PDP by mrakeli62: 6:21am On Dec 04|
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) began its presidential campaign in Sokoto yesterday with a promise that Nigerians would get a better deal if they vote for its candidate former Vice President Atiku Abubakar. National Chairman Uche Secondus described the huge crowd at the Atiku/Obi Northwest Presidential Campaign as a sign the party would sweep the polls in next year’s general elections. It was also evidence that the region has spoken its mind, he said.
Insisting the PDP has the best candidate, Secondus said Atiku has all it takes to boost the nation’s economy, provide food, combat insecurity and solve many of the challenges facing the country.
Speaking in the Fulfulde and Hausa languages, Atiku told cheering supporters that having climbed to success from a humble beginning, he could replicate the pattern for Nigerians. He told the crowd he currently had 1,000 cows and urged the people not to be fooled by those who claim to have only 150 cattle, a veiled reference to President Muhammadu Buhari who is seeking re-election.
Also in a statement by his media office yesterday, Atiku condemned the killing of 50 policemen by bandits in neighbouring Zamfara State and called for a seven-day mourning in honour of the personnel. He sought the declaration of a state of emergency “not in Borno or Zamfara, but in financing the military and security services.”
Former President Goodluck Jonathan maintained that the PDP “is still the number one party in Nigeria.” He urged Nigerians to cast their votes for Atiku, saying the candidate has experience and capacity to tackle the country’s problems.
Others who took turns to explain why Atiku is the candidate of choice included Senate President Bukola Saraki; former National Chairman Ahmed Makarfi; Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal; Board of Trustees Chairman Wali Jibrin; former Governors of Jigawa State Saminu Turaki and Sule Lamido; and former Niger State Governor Aliyu Babangida.
This came as Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris declared a ban on the possession of firearms and other dangerous weapons at political rallies. He also urged politicians to shun hate speech.He gave the warning in Ibadan, Oyo State, during an interactive session with political parties on security arrangements put in place for campaigns.
Represented by Deputy Inspector General of Police Agboola Oshodi-Glover, the IGP said the police would not fold their hands and watch any person or group breach the law. Some stakeholders in the southwest meanwhile have declared that Yoruba votes in the elections must be cast only for the candidate with a focus on restructuring.
Atiku has repeatedly said he would execute this agenda once he is elected.One after the other, speakers at a colloquium held at the MUSON Centre, Lagos, yesterday, warned that the Yoruba nation must unite and not allow an opportunity to achieve the goal slip by.
A former PDP Deputy National Chairman Bode George, who organised the event, said: “The Yoruba people will never negotiate on the purity of restructuring. This federation, as presently constituted, is skewed and disproportionately unfair in the distribution of the national wealth. We insist on a balanced, equitable expanse where every section of the Nigerian society will be free and unhindered in the cultivation of their natural resources.”
Also, a Second Republic senator, Prof. Seth Akintoye, noted that the elections would afford the Yoruba a chance to redefine their destiny. According to him, “Many may not think or feel so, but the Yoruba civilisation is endangered. It is endangered to the extent that the country to which we belong is endangered. It is not part of the Yoruba to surrender to failure or poverty. But at present, we are going through a degree of poverty, hopelessness and failure that we have never seen before. The onus is on us to fight until we achieve success and overcome.”
The forum tagged, ‘Southwest Yesterday, Today and the Challenges of 2019’ was attended by Yoruba leaders including Chairman Presidential Advisory Committee on the 2014 National Conference Femi Okorohunmu; former Minister of Transportation Ebenezer Babatope; Senate Minority Leader Biodun Olujimi; Lagos State PDP Governorship Candidate Jimi Agbaje; and former Lagos State Deputy Governor Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele.
Similarly, urging the people to push for change, the national convener of Brighter and Better Nigeria, Prophet Isa El-Buba, regretted that the current administration is steeped in untruth. According to him, it is the “most corrupt government we have ever had.”
El-Buba, who is also General Overseer of the Evangelical Bible Outreach Ministry, told The Guardian in Jos, Plateau State, it was time the president resigned. “I am not contending with the government in terms of going to fight with the government. No. All I am saying is, if you are not competent to lead us, give way and we will get in the right people. That is all I am saying.”

Whatever ideas and solutions are required to make Nigeria a better place to live, work and thrive are recommended.

Our people say when woman has been married to two husbands she is in the best position to determine who is better.
The two husbands presented before Nigeria are both Useless and Jobless.
Buhari is the jobless husband who will sit at home all day watching TV whilst expecting you to clothe and feed him.
Atiku is jobless husband who doesn't stop at that. He will go out drinking beer on credit with your name and come back and beat you.
Let's be guided.
Don't outsmart yourself.

That you are not happy Buhari is not fixing PDP mess very fast, is not a reason hand the Nation back to them.
Atiku's economic agenda boils down to selling NNPC in 6 months.
Saraki confessed that Atiku slots for his boys.
Jonathan said yesterday that voting Atiku will bring back the Yam and Goat theory of corruption.
We will not return to our vomit as a Nation. Never!

Atiku should spend money
"Only" his money we need
His Excellence, President Mohammadu Buhari (GCFR) his over confident on ground and spending less on campaign and doing work.
Atiku is the only spender in this election and he must spend.

Anybody that is against the restructuring of this country is an enemy of Nigeria.
They want the unequal status quo to remain where they can continue to loot the treasury. They want things to remain this way so they can give the juicy jobs in NNPC and CBN to their kinsmen and family members but give crumbs in terms of tradermoni, N-power and school feeding program to other Nigerians.
Only the person who has promised to restructure this country should be voted by the common man .

How the mod smartly hid the SW elders endorsing Atiku article in the bottom end of this all muddled up despite different locations, clout and listeners is quite amazing..
But quick to throw up an old video of Obasanjo's squabble with Atiku despite Obasanjo's endorsement of Atiku.

By shutting and scrapping the NASS as recommended by Sowore, Sowore needs to be more serious. He wants to close and scrap democracy by doing that....He needs to go and review that clause

netpro:When will you realise it that the issue at stake is neither a PDP or an APC issue? As it currently stands, Buhari as an individual was elected. But he ended up being ineffective. Buhari was vomited in 1985. But u guys decided to swallow your vomit 30years later. U can see the colossal failure. On the other hand, ATIKU has never been a president. Hence he isn't a vomit. Before u judge PdP too harshly, just do a background check on those who currently form the APC.

Goodluck Jonathan: Vote Atiku so you can have food to eat.
Saraki : Don't vote for hunger
Atiku : I have 1000 cows, he (Buhari) has 150. I am a rich man. Vote for me.
What the fúck?

chloride6:Your assessment is flawed and devoid of common sense.
We haven't married Atiku yet, but we have married buhari twice and he disappointed us twice.
Common sense demands that we try Atiku now, because no matter how dark you paint these two men, once of them must emerge as your husband in 2019. Instead of wasting your vote on other candidates, you better use it to make a wise choice between Atiku and Buhari.
|Re: Why Northwest Should Vote Atiku, Obi, By PDP by chloride6: 8:54am On Dec 04|
You haven't married Atiku?
Who was Atiku between 1999 to 2007
