The 2019 presidential election is fast approaching and the politicking has started in earnest.

A group, Concerned Citizens for Atiku,(CC4A) believe former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, is the Messiah

The group informed that it’s no longer appealing to Atiku but have to now compel him to run, in view of the fact that our country is at a crossroads and in dire need of a leader like Atiku with a track-record of credibility and empathy.

Convener of the group, Adebowale Taiwo Jante disclosed this while addressing the newsmen and media aide and leader of the Atiku Media Office, Paul Ibe, and his deputy, Alhaji Sani when his group paid a courtesy visit to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, at his media office in Jabi, Abuja, on Friday.

While calling on the former Vice President to speedily declare, Adebowale said, “Your Excellency, it is an honour and privilege to stand before you not just as a group of patriotic young people of like minds, but also as citizens under the umbrella of Concerned Citizens for Atiku (CC4Atiku), whose common interest is not limited to the total reversal of the unfortunate under-development of Nigeria, but also ensuring her speedy climb, up the ladder of economic growth and prosperity, as well as the wellbeing of its citizens irrespective of all sentiments.

Reminding that posterity will demand answers from Atiku should Nigeria continue along this treacherous path of socio-economic decay if he doesn’t step forward to salvage it, CC4Atiku explained that it is predicted on this that it had turned down the opportunity to appeal to the former vice President, and had resorted to compel him.

In his response, Atiku’s media aide, Paul Ibe described the action of the group as a step in the right direction for young Nigerians to be actively involved in politics at all levels.
