Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain and former Delta state governorship aspirant, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has affirmed that he would have quitted active politics should former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, fail to clinch the PDP presidential ticket for 2019 elections.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, while celebrating Atiku’s victory with his loyalists, Onuesoke recalled that he has been Atiku’s supporter several years and has always have the belief that should he be given the opportunity to become Nigeria’s president, he will create great changes.
He described Atiku as a dynamic one-stop shop investment icon, who could turn things around within 90 days of his swearing in as president of Nigeria.
Responding to questions on why he is supporting Atiku, the PDP chieftain said Atiku’s position on restructuring, security and job creation was the basis for his growing support and love for him.
“Atiku has the experience and the capacity to rule Nigeria. Remember he was the vice president of this country for eight years and his experience in the private sector that will make him a good president.
“Atiku is well prepared for the job. He already has a blueprint on how to grow Nigeria, tackle insecurity and restructure the country to give us true federalism which is key to our development and that is what we need at the moment,” Onuesoke said.
Onuesoke said he is very confident that Atiku will deliver a far better, prosperous and united Nigeria than what the people currently have.
“If you are privileged to have a close interaction or one-on-one chat with the Waziri himself, you will understand what I mean.
“He has got the stuff, a born capitalist investor, an economic manager par excellence, well respected in the global economic circle in the west and middle east, which include parts of the fast growing Asia giants. The name Atiku is a brand for investment perfection and also a seasoned administrator,” Onuesoke stated
