2019 Presidency: Atiku speaks on Nigerians voting for Buhari


The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday pointed out why Nigerians should not vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming February election.

Abubakar lamented that Buhari has “ruined the nation’s economy,” adding that “Nigeria has never had it so bad since independence”, hence the need to vote him out.

He also urged Nigerians not to allow President Buhari to “steal their votes in the February 16, 2019 Presidential election.”
He gave the call during an interactive session with some youth groups, social media influencers and bloggers in Abuja and was contained in a statement issued by PDP spokesperson, Kola ogbondiyan.

The Waziri of Adamawa lamented that the Buhari administration has “wrecked the nation and must be voted out for the nation to thrive again.”
Abubakar, a former Vice President said the “desperate attempts by the Buhari Presidency to manipulate the electoral process, including the foisting of President Buhari’s relation to head the collation of Presidential election results as well as hounding of judicial officers, are all geared to enable President Buhari steal votes in the election.”

According to him, “President Buhari has stolen your jobs. He has stolen your rights. Don’t let him steal your votes. They are preparing the ground to steal your votes. I know that Nigerians are ready to ‘Get Nigeria Working Again’, but don’t let President Buhari steal your votes.

“Nigeria has never been in such a bad shape as we have today, not even during the civil war. Things are really bad. We have never had the economy this bad and the nation has not been so insecure as we are under the Buhari administration. That is why we all must work together to rescue our nation and make it work again”.
Atiku also urged Nigerians not to “despair as he has already perfected templates that would ensure rapid economic recovery, massive employment opportunity and strategic avenues for empowerment of Nigerians in all sectors of life.”
