2019: WHY I WANT TO BE PRESIDENT – ATIKU
Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, while speaking at the symposium and inauguration of the Atiku Mandate Group code-named TAM-G in Lagos revealed why he is running for the office of President.
The former Vice-President, who is running for President for the fifth time, said the 2019 presidential election was “not about him as a person but for the survival of Nigeria.”
“The Atiku campaign mantra will focus on the acronym (JOBS), which literally means creating jobs for the teeming majority of unemployed Nigerian youths; creating opportunities and the enabling environment for Nigerians to excel in their individual endeavours; reconciling and uniting Nigerians and creating a sense of belonging among all the ethnic groups in the country; and providing adequate and enduring security for lives and property of all Nigerians at all levels.”
He added that the Nigerian youths would gain immensely from his Presidency if voted into power, stressing that most of his businesses were “managed by Nigerian youths; and the same will be replicated in Atiku’s government with over 40 per cent slots already pencilled down for the youths.”
