Atiku is the unifier Nigeria needs – Oyo Support Group

Atiku Support Group (ATI-SUG), Oyo State Chapter, has said that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential flag bearer of the PDP that Nigeria needs, must be completely insulated from socio-economic challenges. economic and political issues facing the nation.

In a press release signed Monday by Otunba Ola Abraham Isho, the group’s Oyo State PRO, the PDP presidential candidate was described as a team player, a pillar of stability and a political unifier.

According to the group, it should be noted that after the demise of General Yaradua, arguably the most powerful politician in the North after the end of Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Waziri of Adamawa, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON, has since emerged as the time-tested strongman of the North who inherited and ceded the Yaradua structures to Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

The statement said in part: “It is recorded that when we learn that anti-democratic forces tried to incite AAA against its director and that altercations occurred and it was settled amicably while AAA had the ability to turn the tables on his ex-boss.’, he never did.

“This benevolent and benign Atiku has distinguished him over time as a modest, self-effacing individual who, unlike his adversary, does not show off or fight like pigs.”

“Who else can be trusted in a struggling democracy like ours to provide therapeutic leadership to our ailing political regime, if not the man who has seen it all in a political odyssey of 32 years in the Nigerian Odyssey and yet would not go on television to insult his superiors or tell boastful and lewd “Emilokan” stories or rude “,olulee” remarks or derogatory “eleyi” insults against official potentates and officially elected representatives of the people? At ATI-SUG, we believe that morning dawns and there is more to worry about beyond the Muslim/Muslim ticket issue, when a presidential candidate cannot emulate the mastery of Atiku’s self and would brag and threaten his bosses in the most menacing way within minutes of being handed the party flag.

The group said they refused to get embroiled in the raucous bickering and war of words between the various support groups working for the 3 leading Nigerian presidential candidates as this should indeed be a time of sobriety, of introspection, reflection and contemplation so that Nigerians can make a wise and calm choice and not get bamboozled with the ethno-religious map that the APC used as a plane ticket in 2015 and 2019 and which does not did not explode in their hands.

The group enjoined everyone in Oyo State not to be misled by the loud ambitions of those who ran in the state for 8 years and ended up with broken promises and plans , leaving people worse off than they were before the party’s misfortune. advent in the governance of Oyo State.

The group commended Engr Seyi Makinde, FNSE, the State Governor for pioneering the Nigerian rescue mission in Oyo State and providing the ideological structure upon which the national rescue mission is built. based under the Atiku Flag Captaincy.

The group expressed their pride in Governor Seyi Makinde FNSE and the fact that the rescue mission was flown for the first time in Oyo State under his command. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON, said the group deserved the honor of transferring the Oyo State rescue mission structure as national leader, pilot and flag captain because of their long-time financial support. date to the grassroots cause of Oyo State.

The group recalled that it was the same Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to whom Alhaji Lamidi Adedibu turned for essential financial support on election day in 2003 and that there had been no time since then when Atiku had turned its back on Oyo State.

The group therefore described him as our friend in Oyo State whose people have benefited immensely from his big heart than Osun State, the home of his wife.

The group assured Alhaji Atiku Abubakar GCON that the people of Oyo State have never been ungrateful as seen in past records of their support for him and they will do the same in 2023.

The group also announced plans to take Oyo State by storm for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and all Bottom Up PDP Flahbearers, (BTT) with a series of events and programs that would kick off with a conference of press at NUJ Press Center, Iyaganku, Ibadan at a date to be announced later.
