An Alhaji Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign support group has reacted to reports credited to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) making a mockery of Igbo leaders for endorsing the 2019 presidential bid of the former vice president.
In its reaction, the group said “Our attention has been drawn to the mocking statement by the rudderless All Progressives Congress against the Igbo people of the South-east and South-south region over their endorsement of the former Vice President and Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (GCON).
This was contained in a ststement issued by the Assistant Publicity Secretary, Turaki Vanguard, Chief Innocent Edwin.
The group noted that it was dumbfounded to observe that “a political party that promised to uphold the constitution of Nigeria is the same party attacking the Igbos for expressing their support for Turaki Adamawa in next year’s presidential election in Nigeria.”
“In case they don’t know, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar represents hope, prosperity, peace, restructuring and unity of Nigeria unlike the rudderless APC which represents hopelessness, hunger, diseases, poverty and divisions.
“No doubt, the Igbos being the fundamental and integral members of project-Nigeria have collectively rejected the contraption called APC which in the last three years promoted hatred for one another, ethnic chauvinism, political intolerance and mediocrity in our public and private lives.
“We therefore ask the APC to accept the glaring fact that it has failed the Nigerian people instead of living in the cocoons of lies, cheap propaganda and self delusion.
“The presidency of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is a reality that has come to stay in Nigeria which no force on earth can stop.
“The earlier the APC members understands this reality, the better for them to start preparing their hand-over notes because the crushing defeat that awaits them next year is inevitable”, the group said.
