A leading support group for the Atiku Abubakar presidency, Atiku Is The Answer (AITA), is currently stepping up its game in preparation for the forthcoming presidential primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), by convening a National Convention for their members and all PDP national delegates and stakeholders in Enugu.
The conference, which is slated for the 16th and 17th of September 2018, is themed: The imperatives of good governance in Nigeria.
In a brief chat with the National Coordinator of the group, Dr Fresh Onuoha, he confirmed the essence of the conference, which is the need for all Nigerians and indeed the PDP national delegates to realize that the country is presently challenged by its leadership deficit, and is in urgent need of redemption.
In his words, “A cosmopolitan society as ours, is in need of a true leader, a leader whose actions and inactions, over the years, represents a solution to our current leadership deficit. The essence of this conference is to underscore this obvious national challenge and also proffer a viable alternative.
‘’The name of our group,’Atiku Is The Answer’ aptly captures this. The PDP national delegates need to be debriefed from primordial sentiments, and other nuances that has the capacity of blurring their views from making the right choice to, not only return our great party to power, but also to liberate our great country from the shackles of the enemies of the state. Our country currently needs a detribalized Nigerian, a bridge builder and an economic power house like the Wazirin Adamawa, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. Our delegates need to appreciate this, by putting our best foot forward in this election, by electing Atiku Abubakar’’.
On the strength of the group, the amiable politician explains thus; “We have a strong presence in all the states of the federation, including Sokoto, Yobe, Maiduguri and Kebbi. I invite you to join us in Enugu and see how our delegates from the various states of the federation will flood the state. We are on record as one of the earliest groups that began drumming up support for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and we have followed him all the way. Every state that our incoming president has visited had our visible imprint, from the Airports to rallies, etc. we also played a prominent role in contributing funds for the purchase of the nomination and expression of interest forms.
At the convention, we shall also be inaugurating the national executives of our organization, while also setting up committees on various aspects of confronting the challenges ahead. There is work to be done, we must drum up the gospel of Atiku Abubakar presidency through all the nooks and crannies of this country
