For a long time now, even far before 2019 General Elections where I strongly supported the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to become the President of Nigeria, I really made a case to back my convictions and I am still here insisting that the believe that resurrected that faith has not died, it never wavers either.
Significantly, I also always make bold to tell detractors that our efforts then was not borne out of quest for pecuniary ends as many are want to believe, but based on genuine believe in the reality that Nigeria can be fixed. Nigeria can get working again when we have the right leaders at the helms of her affairs. We bankrolled our efforts then, we needed only to believe.
Haven said this, let me reiterate that the believe has not changed because I am among few Nigerians that have not given up on the endless possibilities of a better Nigeria when a man like Atiku is allowed to bring his wealth of experience to bear on harnessing our potentials.
I have always maintained that Nigerians should not allow the propaganda of media trial used by the betrayers of our future to blackmail Atiku to confuse us. In him, I see a Leader, a Democrat, a Bureaucrat, a man with economic and managerial capacity to turn Nigeria around with his wealth experience that stood him out during Obasanjo’s administration.
Finally, let me reemphasize that Nigeria at this moment don’t need just any leader as our problem is not rooted on zoning or tribe, but on choosing the right man for the job.
I also still maintain that we need a man with the capabilities and capacity to snatch the power from the cabals, the purveyors of our collective wealth, and hand it back to the people.
Supporting Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is creating greater chance for restructuring and youths in politics. Nigeria needs a President that will be for all Nigerians to unite all Nigerians as our progress rests on our unity.
