2019: Yoruba Group Commends Obasanjo For Endorsing Atiku
More commendations are coming the way of former President Olusegun Obasanjo for forgiving and endorsing his former vice president, Atiku Abubakar.
A pan-Yoruba group, Yoruba Youth Forum, has lauded the decision of Obasanjo to forgive Atiku.
The group also lauded Obasanjo for endorsing Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, for the 2019 general elections.
The YYF said by forgiving Atiku, Obasanjo had shown himself as a genuine leader, adding that it believed that the former President’s move was in the country’s interest because “the majority of Nigerians are already tired of the APC-led government which has failed to deliver despite the massive supports by Nigerians.”
The YYF said this in a statement on Monday by its Chairman, Olusegun Bolarinwa.
It said, “We want to specifically thank former President Olusegun Obasanjo for finally accepting the apology of his former deputy in the interest of Nigerians.
“Many Nigerian voted for the APC because they thought the party would be able to improve their lives but today the party has made a mess of every sector of our national life.
“The economy today is in a total mess. During the electioneering period, President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, APC, made promises which many of us believed.
“Some of us believed in those promises not because we were fools but because those promises came from Buhari, a man we once vouched for his integrity.
“But today, Mr President, none of those promises has been fulfilled. Nigeria has fared badly under President Buhari.”
