Ahead of the 2019 general elections, a socio-political group, Celebrities for Atiku Mandate (CEFAM), has urged Nigerians not to entertain fear or be distracted by any tactics aimed at discouraging them from exercising their civic rights.
Addressing the media during the Atiku Family Nite Exclusive Premiere in Abuja recently, the national coordinator, CEFAM, Mazi Dickson Iroegbu, urged Nigerians not to be disturbed by the forthcoming elections but to go out and exercise their rights as citizens in the 2019 general elections.
Iroegbu noted that the premiere was designed as an exclusive event that presents the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as a good husband, father and leader who Nigerians can safely entrust with presidential power in 2019.
According to him, “Nigeria is a nation of hopeful people, which we all need to come together and make it work.”
Also speaking, the spokesman, Atiku Campaign Organisation, Segun Sowunmi, who called on Nigerians not to reinforce failure but to embrace the Atiku/Obi ticket which represents hope and offers the restructuring of the federation, said the presidential candidate has the capacity and clarity of mind, experience and large heart to run a people-friendly, all-inclusive government that will get Nigeria working again.
“Atiku has a history of creating wealth and employing thousands of people even in his private capacity; he is a detribalized Nigerian who understands the diverse and complex nature of the nation, a sound mind who also has eagle eyes for talents and who will not waste time to appoint credible world-class professionals who will work with him to reposition the economy.
“Based on his recent utterances and conduct, he has shown that Nigerian youths will be the bedrock of his administration come 2019,” he added.
