The Coalition Democracy, a political support group have called on the former vice president of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to run for the 2019 presidency. In a statement signed by it’s national co-ordinator, Michael Williams Esq.
The statements reads, “We have watched the current socio-economic and political realities and quagmire in Nigeria with keen interest.
The life expectancy of Nigerians has been reduced to zero. Citizens are no longer working for a living but for survival. Hoplesness and despair has beclouded our atmosphere. Our children live without hope for tomorrow. Hunger has sent thousands of citizens to their untimely grave. Many are now asking if this is the change they voted for? There is anger and resentment every where in the land while government is aloof to their problems.
Before, it was 27 states, but now its 31 states that are unable to pay workers salary. Federal Government has also been unable to meet its obligations in this regard.
Having watched and studied all names bandied around as possible candidates for 2019 Presidential election, His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has emerged as the only candidate that can take Nigeria out of it’s current grave economic predicament and uncertainties.
Atiku is the biggest employer of labour in Nigeria. He is a wealth creator and knows how to bring back our jobs. He is a tested and proven democrat with nationalistic sense. He is a detribalized Nigerian with the clout to super-glue the fractured bones of Nigeria.
With Atiku Abubakar on the saddle, Nigeria will be great again.
Having endorsed him for 2019 Presidential election, we urge the over 500 support groups affiliated to us to transform themselves to a movement that will be known as ‘Atiku Phenomenon’ ahead of 2019 Presidential election.
In the coming days, we are going to roll out our activities to add flesh to our bone endorsement.
We seek the maximum support and cooperation of our security agencies and the general public”
