The National Leadership of Atiku Care Foundation Zonal Executives in Kaduna on Sunday, unanimously backed the statement made by the Minister of Women Affairs, Hajiya Jummai Alhassan that Atiku Abubakar is the best candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
The group said that considering the past and present antecedents of the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, he remains the only candidate that knows the problem of Nigeria and Nigerians.
National Chairman of Atiku Care Foundation, Amb. Aliyu Bin Abbas, said that as one of the detribalized leaders Nigeria has, it would be uncalled for to support any other candidate other than the Waziri of Adamawa.
“Atiku Abubakar is an asset to the ruling All Progressives Congress but unfortunately, the governor of Kaduna and his allies are attacking the personality of Atiku Abubakar and wanting to frustrate him out of the ruling party with unfounded characterizing him negatively.
“Despite his huge contributions to the success of the party at polls in 2015 and thereafter, these paper tigers that insult every leader that they have worked with including those old enough to be their fathers continue to rain insults on His Excelllenc, Atiku Abubakar forgetting the fact that power belongs to God Almighty and he gives to whom he pleases. Atiku will be President come 2019 Insha Allah. #NigeriaFirstAtikuCare,” he said.
Meanwhile, he assured the state chapter that logistics and funds will soon be provided to compliment their efforts on social and humanitarian aids in the state.
In his remarks, the state chairman, Ibrahim Danfulani highlighted how they are strategizing and mobilizing loyal supporters of Atiku Abubakar across the 23 local government areas in the state to execute its activities.
He however, said that they are doing all it takes to continue defending Atiku Abubakar from the ungrateful and treacherous state governor who can go to any length to stab Atiku that brought him to relevance just to rise politically.
