Atiku to Nigerians: You have opportunity to change inept government
Former Vice President Abubakar Atiku sent a wakeup call to Nigerians yesterday, sensitizing them to change the clueless, inept, and corrupt Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led government in the 2015 Presidential election.
He said: “Today, you have got the opportunity to change the government that is corrupt, that is inept, that is weak, that has no clue.”
Speaking at the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Convention at Abuja, he said that his prediction in 2011 that President Goodluck Jonathan has no clue about the nation’s problems has come to pass.
“In 2011, I stood in this Square and I told Nigerians that they were about to elect a government that did not have any clue to the problem of this country. And today, we are seeing that prophecy,” he submitted.
Atiku assured the citizenry that he will particularly lead the battle for the change of the current administration at the centre.
The ex-Vice President said: “Tonight is going to be the birth of the alternative party for the people of this country, who yearn change: For the people of this country who want good governance, for the people of this country who want better security, for people of this country who want employment particularly our youth, for the people of this country who want better healthcare, for the people of this country who want to see a better future for their children.”
He urged fellow party men to use their convention to distinguish themselves from the PDP, stressing that “to night we must show that we are a democratic party.”
APC, according to him, was not founded on the premise of region, religion and ethnicity.
His words: “Tonight, we must show that we place this country Nigeria first before any other thing. We are not going to show that we are either from the North or from the South, we are not Muslims or Christians. We are not anything but Nigerians first.”
While appealing to Nigerians to embrace the opportunity, Atiku urged the members to ensure that APC comes victorious in the 2015 polls.
