The former vice president and a presidential hopeful in the forthcoming general election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has been described as the best for the highest office in the country come 2019.
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta state, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, made the assertion in an interview recently in Warri, Delta state.
Speaking of his supports for the ex-vice president, he said that the passion and love Atiku has for the development of the Nigerian state can be seen in the number of persons who are currently engaged by his various companies.
“The love I have for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is his strong capitalist nature, being the strongest in Nigeria, as he has more than 50,000 Nigerians on his pay roll coupled with the multiplier effects on labour situation in the country.
According to the PDP chieftain, Atiku’s drive for social development of the country came long before the conception of the present democratic structure in the country, and this he had continued even after his tenure as the vice president of Nigeria.
Chief Onuesoke, in stressing the dream of Atiku to see to the social and economic development of the country, challenged other politicians, especially those who had had held offices since 1999 to come out and invest in the social needs of the people, which is the only way to improve the living standard of the average Nigerian.
for now among the many that are canvassing for the office of the president in 2019, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is the only person that has a clear view of what to do to take the country to political and economic development
“I call on politicians since 1999 to do likewise. They should emulate Atiku by investing on things that will propel the country into economic freedom,” he said.
According to him, for now among the many that are canvassing for the office of the president in 2019, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is the only person that has a clear view of what to do to take the country to political and economic development.
“Atiku can only be compared to Donald Trump, the American president, as he has a clear view of what it takes to run a country that will propel us to a better political and economic freedom.”
He stated that his supports for Atiku is not because of his former position as a vice president, but because he is a diehard capitalist investor.
“I don’t support Atiku merely because he was a former vice president, I support him because he is a diehard capitalist investor. He is somebody I communicate with, somebody I know one on one. He talks business. He talks employment.
“About social institutions, which is his main focus and dream. That was while I fell in love with his leadership style and I know he can deliver the country. In fact he is the best as we approach 2019.” He stressed
