Why I want to be President of Nigeria -Atiku

The former Vice President said the 2015 election was about Nigeria’s youth and the nation’s future.
He stressed that the nation under the current administration has failed to provide the required environment for the youth to reach their full potentials.  
Atiku said 
“It is inspiring that amidst difficulties and growing anxiety over the future of our country, our people have refused to succumb to despair and hopelessness.
“This never-say-die attitude gives me immense hope and it is one of the reasons why I can never give up on Nigeria.”

Revealed : Ex-VP Atiku behind Nyako’s impeachment Saga

Checks by has revealed that a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar is behind the impeachment nightmare of Adamawa Governor, Murtala Nyako.

It has also been revealed that Atiku curiously masterminded the defection of some All Progressive Congress (APC) APC members to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), to whittle down the influence of Nyako and set the stage for his exit.

When trouble started in Yola for Nyako, some believed the mastermind was the PDP and President Goodluck Jonathan. They had speculated that Jonathan wanted him out because of his very acerbic letter he wrote to his colleagues and the need for his party to seize the structure in the state.

The players played with great skill and projected the Nigerian can do spirit and the result is that Nigeria has become a four time champion. This may not come at an improved time seeing that Nigeria is on the cusp of celebrating our centenary as a nation.

Farida Waziri Is A Beast, Obasanjo And Atiku Should Work Together To Bring Down Jonathan – Femi Fani-Kayode

I am glad that President Olusegun Obasanjo has finally described the former Chairman of the EFCC, Farida Waziri, for the beast that she has always been and that he has commended my brother Nuhu Ribadu for his excellent record of service to our country.

However I must say that I think that it is ill-advised for Baba to be attacking Abubakar Atiku at this point in time. Two months ago he fired a similar salvo at Bola Tinubu as 
well which was again completely unecessary.


Atiku Abubakar calls Obasanjo Is A Liar

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar Wednesday took a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo, noting that his former boss lied that he risked jail if he travels to the United States of America, USA.

In a statement Wednesday by his media adviser, Garba Shehu,  Atiku Abubakar who noted that Obasanjo’s statements in an EFCC magazine, “Zero Tolerance, “were not true, said, “The former President is wrong. It is widely known that Atiku didn’t enter government broke.

Atiku For President Billboard & Posters hit Abuja.

The Picture is getting clearer, why Nigerians were mashed in unplanned confusion, insecurity and various forms of economic sabotage in the last 3 years. Hope For Nigeria listed some of the quotes and warnings that can be rightly construed as the actual pointer to the sorry state of things in Nigeria today. "North Must Produce President In 2015 Or Nigeria Will Divide - Atiku's Associate, Alhaji Lawal Kaita. "President Goodluck Jonathan Must step down from running for a re-election as Nigerian President in 2015 Presidential election. - Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Group's condition for peace in PDP. "President Jonathan Must run for only one term as that is the way that peace will return to Nigeria". - PDP Rebels. "In October 2010, Atiku Associate, Alhaji Lawal Kaita warned Nigerians that, "The North is determined, if Jonathan wins, we will make the country ungovernable for President Jonathan or any other Southerner who finds his way to the seat of power on the platform of the PDP".

Chairman of President Jonathan's PDP Bamanga Tukur threatens Atiku's PDP with suspension, prosecution

Our reason for being here is to neither inform you without any iota of doubt that the Peoples Democratic Party has no faction and there is neither room nor reason whatsoever for such a claim under any guise.
The PDP has only one duly elected National Executive Committee (NEC) under my Chairmanship. I wish therefore to state with all emphasis that any group of persons parading themselves as leaders of NEC or any other organ of our party are impostors and I urge all Nigerians, especially the security agencies and other institutions of democracy to regard them as such.
