Attachments area Being privileged to have met and know Atiku and his domestic staff,
swimming pool guy, maintenance staff, cleaners, gatemen, drivers,
electrician not a single ill word about this man from his staff. He is a
man that does not play to the gallery like his friends would say; he is
a very nice man, a man of his words, a kind and generous person, a
phillantrophist, a non-triballistic individual.
He is a man Nigerians should trust and rely on because he is a man with
impeccable record, he is well grounded and his role as Vice President
his become a reference point. And above all because he believes
education is a tool that can transform a man to success and bring him
out of poverty. A good example is the son of his driver whom he gave
scholarship to study at his American University in Yola. I have the
opportunity of meeting his staff on daily basis and knows how he has
transformed the lives of staff, junior and senior long before he came
into politics. He is a man who is ready to transform the lives of
Nigerians for the best.
How confident are you of victory at the polls?
Hmmmmm we will do our best to monitor the elections on our own part. We
can be confident if INEC is neutral, conducts a free and fair election
and the military personnel do not intimidate voters nor interfere with
elections. These aside, we are confident that our principal will come
Most people believe that politics is dirty, especially in this part of
the world, to what extent is the game dirty?
Obviously the perquisites of office that come with political position in
this country is extremely attractive. When we compare remunerations
attached to these offices compared to other countries of the world,
Nigeria’s rank first. A Nigerian parliamentarian earns N14.25 million
per month while majority of Nigerians earn $2.00 per day! This is why it
has become a do or die affair. It is therefore frighteningly dangerous
to the extent of threatening or killing their opponents. This also is
affecting our democracy as those who want to play a humble honest and
straight games are frightened out.
Do you think Nigeria has made progress since 1999 when democracy came
Of course, Nigeria has made a lot of progress except in the last four
years. The government of PDP from 1999 made great progress when our
debts of $32 billion with Paris Club and London Club was cleared.
Privatisation of many state companies that brought in $7.7billion, Non
oil Sector grew . Nigeria External Reserve rose to $41billion.
Institutions to fight corruptions were set up. EFCC, ICPC etc.,
Universities were built, school were built, hospitals were built and
equipped. Etc. Immigration Services were improved, Foreign Investments
improved and stands at $4b. etc.
Any message for the voting public.
My message is not ensure that their PVC is a passport to selecting their
own Leader. For every single vote in this election matters a great deal.
To avoid this suffering under APC, we must vote Atiku Abubakar to be
our President in 2019. Do not sell your Voter’s Card as APC has been
going out giving cash for PVC. They should exercise their right because
it is a government for the people by the people and your voting will
determine the outcome of the election. We need to change the change and
make Nigeria working again.
Do you foresee crisis in the 2019 General Election?
There has never been a violence-free elections in Nigeria. The refusal
of the President to sign the Electoral Bill is a bad omen. This is a
Bill intended to aid the smooth and credible election.
INEC must act fairly and security personnel should not interfere during
the polls. The President must act if he means well for Nigeria.
Inclosing, I will say all of us in the ATIKU PRESIDENTIAL VIEW are
working with the agility of a horse!
And William Shakespeare said “ It is not in the starts to hold our
destiny but in ourselves.”
