2019: Declare your Candidacy now or Else….. – TUNG advises Atiku

The United Nigeria group has called on Former vice-president and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to declare his candidacy for president now.

In a statement made available to PoliticsNGR signed by its leader, Dr Emenena Bright, the group assured Atiku of its unparalleled support for his 2019 presidential ambition. The statement read;

“We once again wish to raise an alarm on the divisions and disunity that are rife and are now in a dangerous scale.

That there is an urgent need to put a stop on this downward spiral of the strength of the bonds that hold us together as a nation.

The group laid emphasis on her motto, “Fairness, Breeds Peace, Unity and Progress” and resolved that these divisions are mostly fueled by the perception of lack of fairness by the various ethnic groups or regions. The need for a leader with capacity to engage everyone and make them feel inclusive cannot therefore be over emphasized.

We take special cognisance of the economic and security situation of the country especially in view of the recent kidnapping of school girls and wish to state that these are symptoms of our present form. We must therefore seriously consider our structure. We are aware that form affects function.

In view of the above, we want to reaffirm our unalloyed support for the candidacy of His Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and are asking him to officially declare his candidacy now.

We also want to call on the PDP as the major opposition party to continue to advance democracy by making the process of selection of the candidates for election free and fair. Even as an opposition party, the PDP can take democracy to the next level by allowing her presidential candidates to debate the issues before the electorates and would-be delegates before the primaries as it is done in other advanced democracies. It is important for the electorates to hear from the candidates what they intend to do and how they intend to achieve them.

We want to also encourage all citizens to stop being complacent. We understand how hopeless it feels right now, but 2019 offers a renewed hope if only we get involved. Voting is a right of every eligible citizen, the PVC is your tool towards implementing that right. We must, therefore, thrive to overcome all the obstacles thrown at us in trying to get the PVC and ensure that yours is ready.

In conclusion, the group wishes to state once again that it shall work assiduously to ensure that a fair leader, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar with a good sense of nationhood emerges in the next election. We thank all members and citizens who were at the event in Abuja. It is a great show of commitment to a better Nigeria.”
