Group declares support for Atiku

A group known as the Concerned Citizens for Atiku, CC4A, has declared support for a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, to run for president in 2019.

Although, the former number two citizen is yet to formally declare his intention, the group asked him to do so, saying it would mobilise Nigerians on his behalf.

Members of the group led by Adebowale Jante stated these during a courtesy visit to the media office of Mr. Abubakar in Jabi, Abuja.

According to a statement by Mr. Jante, the group was received by the head of Mr. Abubakar’s Media Office, Paul Ibe.

Mr. Ibe while receiving the group noted that Nigeria is in dreadful need of a competent leader like Mr. Abubakar. He said the visit by CC4A “was one of hope, especially in the light of Nigeria’s current level of poor governance.”

He commended the group for its make-up, saying it was a step in the right direction for young Nigerians to be actively involved in politics at all levels.

“The CC4Atiku visit and its intentions are in tandem with the #NotTooYoungToRun campaign,” Mr. Ibe said while encouraging members not to relent in their efforts.
