As political groups continue to strategise ahead 2019 general election, a new political group, Atiku Global Support Group (AGSG), has emerged with 14-member national executives.
Speaking during the formal inauguration of the group, in Abuja yesterday, the national coordinator, AGSG, Alhaji Gambo Jagindi, said that the group’s branches in states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have been constituted.
He said that no fewer than 184,000 members have been enlisted in FCT alone.
The organisation, he said, was set up to drum support for former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who recently defected from ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Jagindi noted that the group was taking measures to assist Atiku Abubakar, who is facing serious hurdles both at the party and national levels.
The group, he explained, was set up to penetrate the grassroots to canvass support of both members of PDP and other electorate to actualise the wish of Waziri of Adamawa.
He said that the group was convinced that Atiku was a better alternative to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
The coordinator flayed the statement attributed to an elder statesman, Chief Paul Unongu, that the former Vice President was supporting rampaging herdsmen.
He said Atiku Abubakar was a patriotic Nigerian, who will never support spilling of blood.
“As a loyal former Vice President of Nigeria, he will never engage himself in anything that will disrupt peace, unity and harmony.’’
He advised Unongo to proffer solutions to the crisis in Benue State and not to politicise it.
Some other members of the national executive of AGSG are: deputy national coordinator, Alhaji M. D. Askira; and national secretary, Mr James Ogenyi.
