Presidential Election: Nigerians In UK Back Atiku by Beress(f): 4:20am On Feb 15, 2019
Iyobosa Uwugiaren in Abuja

Nigerians in the United Kingdom said yesterday that they are solidly behind the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, because he represents a new generation of leadership necessary to take the country out of poverty and backwardness.

The Coordinator of Atiku Campaign Organisation in the UK, Dr. Tony Chidi, in a statement yesterday said its members were already in Nigeria to mobilise their unflinching support for Atiku, saying there was no reason to compare Atiku to President Muhammadu Buhari, who he said had failed in the last four years to make any meaningful impact on any aspect of the nation’s economy.

The group rated the former vice president high on many key areas of leadership and asked Nigerians to give massive support to him on Saturday.

“Atiku has demonstrated great capacity, capability and ability in both public and private life far above all who are contesting to be president of Nigeria in 2019. Having been there for eight fruitful years, he understands the system better than the incumbent who has demonstrated gross incompetency and all others who currently aspire to the presidency.

‘’As vice president the economy and other substructures were under his watch and they all performed excellently. Nigerians can attest to the fact that Turaki is highly detribalised and would as it was, offer equal opportunities to Nigerians, irrespective of tribe, religion, culture or political leanings unlike Buhari who is so clannish and myopic. Above all, Atiku is a quintessential democrat whose belief in the Rule of Law and resilience in 2nd last tenure as vice president stabilised our democracy’’, the UK group stated.

The group added that whereas Atiku can be said to possess the essential qualities that can promote peace, mutual understanding and coexistence, harmony and progress of the nation the same cannot be said of Buhari “who has almost succeeded in tearing Nigeria apart from his unguarded utterances and actions that betray his morbid contempt or outright hatred for ethnic groups and religions.”

The group added, “The PDP presidential candidate is a core civilian whereas and possesses sound education and wide exposure in different spheres of life while his rival, Buhari is a core combatant soldier who has not been able to adapt himself to civilian lifestyle nearly four decades after retiring from the army with only school certificate as his highest certificate.

“We also note with satisfaction that Atiku is vibrant and creative while it is evident that Buhari leads a dull, boring life deficient in personal initiatives and development. A successful technocrat and entrepreneur, Turaki’s track records in public service and business stands him out as one whose abilities in bringing back Nigeria’s glory are not doubtful, having succeeded in creating wealth and employment.

“Overall, we wish to draw attention to the fact that Nigeria is a very complex nation and anyone who intends to succeed in the apex position of leadership such as the presidency of the country must blend into these complexities, build cohesion among the component nationalities, religious socio-political leanings and be seen to not clearly pandering to ethnic and religious whims and sentiments.’’

The group urged Nigerians to back Atiku because as a liberal democrat, he is also poised to decentralize the economy and encourage devolution of power which would hinge on restructuring and fiscal federalism.

The Bible says, "The fear of God is wisdom"! Nigerians are the most religious pple on earth yet, the most foolish. How come?

I don't think any wise or progressive thinking Nigerian should even consider voting for anyone other than Sowore or Hashim.

But of course they won't... 95% of Nigerians are FOOLISH and REGRESSIVE! angry

OK, I hear you.

But, how come Buhari and his family had to receive treatment in foreign hospitals with the money meant for you and I and, at our expense while we both can't afford to?

How come Atiku owns several homes abroad at our expense while you and I struggle to pay rents here in Nigeria?

Yet, you're here chanting for some rogue that doesn't understand your plights or struggles.

Buhari as a bigger thief than Gandollar but he is perfect in the act of hypocrisy and pretence.You see poverty walking on the streets of Nigeria, in churches and mosques, in schools, in health centres, but on Nairaland some people try to downplay it and say it is nothing.
Poverty is a major problem. Its twin brothers and sisters are unemployment and insecurity. A ni problem.

From appointments of ministers which took 6 months, that action alon would've led to been in deep sh*t "recession".
I'm not here to tell you who to vote for but to tell you that whatever action you take next week Saturday to vote would affect you either positively or negatively.
Their economic policies would not differentiate us, it affects everyone.
So pls no matter how much you love that candidate, remember there is always after election, and two things would happen, either we starts crying fowl like before or we start giving kudos.

why should we give second chance to someone who could not appoint ministers for almost nine months after winning an election which he has always failed in the past?
He sure got no vision.

Ipoba in UK you mean?




If only people knew what oil countries such as Angolans and Venezuela folks are passing through during this global crude oil price recess, they would thank God Buhari came in rather than Jonathan who looted us dry during oil boom when it was selling at $110 per barrel for five years unlike the paltry $50 it has been selling under APC. If the looting Jonathan couldn't save during the time of plenty and was already borrowing, how would he have carried on during this crude oil price recess?

Despite Buhari administration earning 60% less yet he's come up with plenty projects such as

Our railways at itakpewarri, Lagos-ibadan, kaduna-abuja etc,

The production of low cost fertilizers,

Zik maoseleum

Baro inland port,

Rice mills,

Foreign reserve increase from $26b to $43b,

Construction of our express highways such as enuguonitsha, Lagos-ibadan etc.

Social policy schemes such as tradermoni, npower etc

Payment of all pensions of airline staffs that were forced to retire after the shambolic privatisation by Atiku. PDP didn't pay them in the last 16 years.

And most especially, stabilizing us through this recession which happened because jonathan failed to save despite earning 60% more than Buhari coupled with the fall in the price of crude oil from $110 per barrel in 5 years under Jonathan to a paltry $50 per barrel under Buhari administration yet Buhari was able to keep us afloat while having many projects to his name thereby surprising Ngozi Iweala and Charles Soludo who predicted recession because jonathan looted and failed to save during the time of plentiful.

Sai Baba. PDP, Neva again
