We Must Reverse Negative Indices of APC, Atiku Vows
A former vice-president and frontline presidential aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar yesterday said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) had recorded only negative indices in every aspect of Nigeria’s economic, social and political affairs and time had come to reverse the trend.
To put the nation on the positive path of development and national cohesion, he said that all patriotic Nigerians must come together and rally round a leader with the capacity to reverse the negative indices.
Atiku stated this at Umuahia where he came “to confer” with the leadership of Abia PDP and party delegates and other members of the party on his ambition to pick the presidential ticket of the PDP in order to save Nigeria from the APC maladministration.
“There is insecurity and now we have the greatest economic decline in the history of Nigeria,” he lamented, adding that over 11 million Nigerians were out of jobs while businesses and commercial activities were nose-dividing.
According to the former VP, “it has become imperative for us to put our heads together and elect someone to reverse the negative trends before the country is completely destroyed.
Atiku who arrived in the Abia capital city after touching down at Sam Mbakwe Airport Owerri, was received by an enthusiastic crowd of supporters both at PDP secretariat where he conferred with party leaders and at Michael Okpara auditorium where he had an interactive session with party members.
He assured that he was ready and possess what it takes to lead Nigeria out of the morass the ruling APC, had dragged the country into, noting that he would renew the country and put it back on the path of progress.
