Women, youths charged to support Atiku
International Coordinator, Rebuild Nigeria Initiative (RNI), Mrs. Kemi Adesanya-Eboda has called on Nigerian women and youths to support the presidential ambition of former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 general election.
She said the former vice president is the only political figure currently with the strength and experience to take the nation out of its present economic and political challenges if elected as president in 2019.
Speaking during the official launch and inauguration of RNI in Lagos recently, Adesanya-Eboda said women and youths should use their numerical strength and power of influence to sway the outcome of the next general election in favour of Atiku, whom she considered as the only politician capable of stopping the country from drifting.
According to her, “It is dangerous to allow the continue to continue to drift as we are currently witnessing.
“The poverty level in the country is currently at alarming rate and unfortunately the women folk and youths are the major victims. In any society where women and the youths are cowed due to bad government policies, the possibility for such country to develop or realise its potentials is remote. Nigeria needs a change form the change it was offered in 2015 and Atiku, who has been a successful businessman, politicians and well interacted across the six-geopolitical zones over the years is in a better position to bail us out.”
Although, Adesanya-Eboda said it is time for Nigeria to create more space for women in the political leadership like in other advanced nations that are progressing “to achieve this we women need to rally round the former vice president in 2019 since he promised to give us (women) and the youths enough space to excel, if elected.”
The RNI international coordinator further lamented that high rate of unemployment and poverty in the country, saying that Nigeria needs someone like Atiku to reposition it.
Speaking in similar vein, National President of forum, Asiwaju Frank Sheteolu Gomez said the former vice president is the only politician with the wherewithal and political sagacity to withstand the incumbent president in the coming election.
While he noted that peace and unity is gradually eluding Nigeria, Gomez affirmed that Atiku’s presidency would foster peace and hope for the common Nigeria.
Alhaji Ajagbe Adejumo, a top PDP stalwart in Lagos who represented of Atiku, said the former vice president is a bridge builder and a man that has all it takes to move Nigeria to the next level.
The Deputy National President of the group, Otunba Wale Fasan and the General Secretary Mr. Christian Aburme both agreed that Nigerians have suffered great economic hardship under this current dispensation of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
RNI is one of the 240 support groups in the country currently working for the presidential ambition of Atiku.
