Tai Emeka Obasi, an activist, has interrogated the pledge of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to usher Nigeria into a new dawn in 2023 when he (Atiku) led a revolution that nailed the Peoples Democratic Party in 2015.
Atiku is the presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2023 elections. Obasi was responding to Atiku’s rating during the recent Arise Town-Hall Meeting.
He wrote, “Arise Town-Hall Meeting: Thank You, Atiku, For Appearing But…”
Quoting him, “I must appreciate HE Atiku Abubakar for that appearance on the Arise Town-Hall Meeting. Truly, I supported him in 2019 because it was just a choice between him and the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari. By then, almost anybody, just anybody, would have been better than Buhari. Today, Nigerians, okay, let’s say most Nigerians are united in desire for a new Nigeria.
“In 1999, Atiku was President Olusegun Obasanjo’s running mate and subsequently vice president for eight years. In 2015, Atiku led the mass crossover from PDP to APC to actualise Buhari’s Presidency.
“Hence, there is no Nigerian that played a more prominent role than the Waziri Adamawa in bringing both governments to power. In nearly 24 years, see where we are! How is he now trying to champion a new Nigeria? With what mindset? @#IComeInPeace.”
