MASSIVE SUPPORT FOR ATIKU TO BECOME PRESIDENT IN 2019

Alhaji Gambo Jagindi, said the group emerged out of the desire to galvanise massive support for Atiku to become president in 2019. Jagindi described Atiku as an embodiment of democracy adding that the movement was inspired by his enviable profiles which undoubtedly distinguished him among many politicians in the country. He claimed the former vice president has contributed immensely to the development of democracy and democratic institutions in Nigeria, thereby deserves to be reciprocated by all Nigerians, especially the youth. Jagindi urged the executive members of the group to come up with strategies on how to mobilise no fewer than 15 million eligible voters for Atiku across the nook and crannies of the country. He explained that the group was working round the clock to win the support of both members of PDP and other electorate to actualise the political ambition of Atiku adding that he is convinced that Atiku stands a better chance to win the next presidential elections in 2019.

Jagindi advised members of the group to be law abiding and civil in their approach in the course of canvassing support for the former vice president among the people at the grassroots. According to him, very soon, the group would open its secretariat across the 36 states of the federation and FCT in addition to its National Secretariat in Abuja.The executive members of the group are Lord Ogenyi, its national secretary; Abu Sultan Ahmed, its director in charge of media and publicity; Sadiq Bida, its treasurer; Mohammed Ndagi, its national organising secretary and Isa Yahaya, its director of social media.

The others are Tunde Oguntola, its public relations officer; Amb Innocent Ugwuanyi, its contact and mobilisation officer and Jesica Dogo, its national woman leader. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it had started the search for its presidential candidate that it believes will defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election. The Nation reports that Senator Walid Jibrin who is the chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees dropped the hint on Tuesday, January 9. He described the return of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar as a great omen to the party and that more persons that left the party for the All Progressives Congress are expected to return.
