A group, the Atiku Mandate 2019, has been launched in Lagos with members stating that former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, remains the best presidential candidate capable of moving the country forward amongst gladiators jostling for the nation’s Presidency. The group comprises members from all the political parties.

The Lagos State Coordinator, Prince Lanre Osundairo, at the end of the inaugural meeting of the group in Ikeja on Sunday, said the country needed the former number two man owing to the vast political contacts across the length and breadth of the country would steer the country to the proverbial promise land.

Osundairo, who is a chieftain of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) praised Atiku as “perhaps the best prepared for the job and that Nigerians should give him the opportunity to lead them.”

Addressing the media shortly after the meeting, which lasted for two hours, Osundairo stated: “As you can see, most of the people you see here are not politicians but people who have genuine love for the former Vice President. I admit that some of us are politicians but the propelling rationale for being members of this movement is for us to ensure that our principal assumes the mantle of leadership of the country.”

On the scope of the new group, he stated: “We are putting in place a viable platform for all Nigerians who love the Waziri of Adamawa to come together to demonstrate our love for Alhaji Atiku by canvassing for votes for him at the grassroots.”

Commenting on some of the allegations that continued to dodge the aspiration of the former Vice President, Osundairo stated that Atiku has thrown the gauntlet to whoever is making such allegations to come forward with proof, adding that “since nobody has come up with any of such, the allegations are mere beer parlour rumours to tarnish Atiku’s image.”

The Lagos State Secretary of the group, Dr. Kayode Ojutiku, stated that the process of wooing residents of the state to join in the movement has been smooth owing to the respect that the Adamawa State-born politician commands amongst Nigerians.
