Group endorses Atiku for 2019 presidency

Group endorses Atiku for 2019 presidency

Former Vice Presi­dent Atiku Abubakar has been advised by a group, Greater Nigeria Youth for Peace Initiative (GNYPI) to join the 2019 presidential race.
The group made the ap­peal after its national con­sultative meeting held in Abuja.
According to the group, Nigeria has been polarised along tribal and religious lines, and it needs a leader with the experience and acceptance like Atiku to address them.
GYNPI President, Mr Princewill Chijioke, said that only detribalised Ni­gerians with people-ori­ented programmes such as Atiku can bail out the country from its myriad of problems.
He said that for the sake of unity and progress of the country, Atiku should be allowed to pilot the af­fairs of Nigeria for it to remain as a single entity from 2019.
He spoke further on the group’s resolve to develop a structured mass mo­bilisation of our members nation-wide to the con­tradictions inherent in the on-going constitutional amendments that smack of obsession with a gov­ernance system that lacks the structure to create an enabling space for im­provement of the life of the country’s silent masses.
He used the oppor­tunity to laud Alh Atiku Abubakar on his patrio­tism and assure him of the unreserved support in his wider geo-political firma­ment.
