The South-West chapter of the Nigeria Youth Coalition (NYC) has urged former vice president Atiku Abubakar to negotiate his way to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) before the party’s December 9 National Convention.
The youth groups also urged the former vice president to seek support of ex Nigerian leaders, particularly, his former principal, Olusegun Obasanjo, in his bid to win the 2019 presidential election.
According to a statement signed by its Coordinator, Ojo Abiodun Emmanuel , the group noted that Nigerian youths would campaign for the former vice president when he formerly declare his intention to run for the office of the President.
Ojo observed that the former vice president may find it difficult to secure the presidential ticket of the PDP if he did not participate in the forthcoming convention.
“We want the former Vice president to return to the PDP as soon as possible so that he can participate in the December convention. He should be part of the PDP rebirth, this will avail him a better chance to compete during the party’s primary, ahead of the 2019,” Ojo stated.
He explained that Atiku is vast in modern economic policies and political economy, which according to him, is lacking in the current administration.
“We are ready to mobilise Nigerian youths in support of Atiku, come 2019 elections. Nigerian youths are confident that only the former Vice president is competent and experienced enough to lead Nigeria to economic prosperity,” he added.
