– The Atiku Support Group has said it was not surprised by the inability of President Buhari to deliver on the change the APC promised Nigerians
– Mark Wosi said Atiku will contest the 2019 presidential election because Buhari has failed to deliver on APC’s promises
– He said Buhari lacks the skills needed to govern Nigeria
The Atiku Support Group has said former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, will be contesting 2019 presidential election because of President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to deliver on the promises the All Progressives Congress made to Nigerians.
The Punch reports that director-general of the Atiku Support Group, Mark Wosi, confirmed Atiku’s intention to contest the 2019 presidential election.
According to Wosi, Buhari did not deserve a second term in office and that is the reason Atiku is contesting for the number one position.
He added that Buhari lacked leadership skills and all he had was his alleged claim to personal integrity.
Wosi said: “People are suffering; people believed in you, but you disappointed them. There’s no doubt that our principal, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, is coming out to contest the Number one seat of our dear country in the 2019 presidential election.”
Though he did not state under which party Atiku would contest, Wosi said the former vice president is the most viable alternative for Nigerians as he knows what the nation needs every time.
“Buhari is only prepared to take power but lacks the know-how to govern,” he added.
Wosi therefore, called on Nigerians to look for someone with experience like Atiku.
He said: “That is why we are talking about capacity and capability. There’s no doubt he (Buhari) has integrity, but he lacks leadership qualities. The man is good; there’s no doubt about that. But that’s where Nigerians are missing it. Somebody that cannot manage his cow farm behind his backyard, as the size of the cattle showed no progress. How do you expect him to manage a country of close to 200 million people?”
In an earlier report by NAIJ.com, Atiku Abubakar, was said to have signified his intention to contest in the 2019 presidential election and begun to mobilise support in the southeast zone.
A socio-political organisation, Atiku Care foundation, stated that the former vice president would contest the 2019 presidential election to bring about a positive change in all sectors of the economy.
There was also report that Atiku allegedly met former president Goodluck Jonathan to consider offers made to him by a section of the leadership of the opposition party to return.
There are reports that some PDP chieftains are making efforts to bring Atiku back to the party’s fold but that he gave them conditions which include being given automatic ticket to contest the 2019 presidential election.
