Atiku Abubakar: A ray of hope

Atiku Abubakar: A ray of hope

I wish to let all of you know that I have travelled through the deepest recess of my consciousness and I am accurately convinced that Atiku Abubakar remains the most viable Person for the 2019 Job; well, with various campaigns of calumny flying in the social media which is viewed as the handiwork of political detractors who have self-seeking interest in the current government of APC, the likes of Festus Keyamo who is desperately seeking for appointment in the dying Government of APC, Governor El-Rufai of kaduna state whose guilt of betrayal on Atiku that made him mortally afraid of him coupled with his attempt of positioning himself for 2019 in an event that President Muhammadu Buhari did not run: All this attempt by El-rufai is borne out of the fear of vengeance from Alh. Atiku Abubakar who I believe has no such immodest intentions against him.

Unfortunately those that wore the glory of Buhari’s success in 2015 elections like cap on their head do not see the eminent collapse of APC that is looming. It is imperative to note that Atiku Abubakar was a great flavour to the whole process of the 2015 electioneering, I mean too colourful to be wished away easily by any politician in Nigeria. It will be tantamount to outright disregard for his person and efforts invested by him in the last election most especially in APC, for a free fall of negative campaign on his person emanating from a very tiny source that will be inconsequential in the forthcoming elections they have soiled their hands and are all stained.

It is unfortunate that APC refuses to grow into a party in “Character” but rather chose to remain a mere movement, it is afraid of holding her congress as the envisage end of the era of the broom revolution have become visible, an inevitable by-product of lack of internal democracy, it is obvious that the band that held the broom together is broken and not too long the broom sticks will soon scatter in various direction, this is because the party rewarded Nigerians with ineptitude, nepotism, unemployment and bias.
Atiku’s aspiration is far beyond a party. His boldness despite all odds to stand up and be counted is one that needs commendation. As old horse, he can remain silent in the face of the current mis governance and secure his wealth but what about the faith of those involved in the then change mantra? Where is the place for masses and the less privileged in the current dispensation? This bold step of Alh. Atiku Abubakar in deciding to leave APC as because they didn’t keep to the campaign promises and have consideration for the masses makes him to earn my respect more and makes us to believe that all hope is not lost in the project nigeria.

This shows that the country can be fast forwarded and regain her rightful place among the Committe of nations. Their can’t be better time to align with him and move this country forward now. History will record this about him, i wonder what history will record for Festus Keyamo and El’rufai who despite the obvious failure refused to speak out all for sake of continual patronage.
