Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, made his first appearance at the campaign rally of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari.
On Tuesday, March 24, Atiku made his debut appearance at the Northeast Zonal Rally of the All Progressives Congress, at the Ibrahim Babangida Square, Makurdi.
He also used the opportunity to refute reports of his possible endorsement of President Goodluck Jonathan for a second term, stressing that only Buhari could tackle the critical problems facing the country.
“I want to use this opportunity to plead to you all of you to vote for Gen Buhari. All his promises to you in 2003, 2007 and 2011 would be fulfilled this time if given the needed votes in 2015. Buhari, I am telling you that so many challenging responsibilities await you if God allows you to be President The task is enormous. It is the task of fixing Nigeria. Presently all the sectors in this country have collapsed.”
“We have been supporting you for a very long time because we believe that you will save this country. When God makes you the President, the retarded development we have had in this country and the growing unemployment should be among you priorities. We are pleading that you save this country. Our support for us is as a result of some of these challenges we have highlighted.”
