It appears there is no giving up the fight for the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party at the last elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who said he would keep going, either in court or on the campaign trail, even until he turns 100 years old.
The former Vice President said this in a statement to our correspondents on Sunday signed by his Special Assistant on Youth and Support Groups Ambassador Aliyu Bin Abbas.
Atiku assured millions of his supporters in the last elections, that victory was sure, and that he would not relent in his fight to reclaim his mandate, even at the risk of a prolonged battle in the state well into his eighties and nineties.
He titled the statement, ‘A MESSAGE OF HOPE TO THE OVER 18 MILLION ATIKULATED FAMILY MEMBERS.’
“Like never before in the history of presidential election petition in Nigeria, the plethora, overwhelming, watertight and barefaced evidences at the disposal of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the PDP has put us on a track to glory,” he said.
He appreciated the efforts, doggedness and determination of his supporters to bring about a new Nigeria where businesses and investment will thrive, when he reclaims his mandate at the tribunals.
He added, “It is just the believe and confidence you had that made many of you to travel far and wide, even twice for some, risking everything to cast your votes for his Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar/Peter Obi.
“Some of you may have never voted before, but because you believed in #TheAtikuPlan and you wanted a new Nigeria to be birth by Wazirin Adamawa and Peter Obi, you chose to endure all the stress, including those of collecting PVC and joining the queue to cast your vote under the scorching sun.
“It is a public knowledge that some of you had to even paid money to collect your PVCs in some places like Lagos among others, a very sad and embarrassing situation,” he said.
He told them not to despair, but remain resolute.
“Right now, our dream of a #BetterNigeria may seem to have been dashed by the cowardice behavior of the chairman of INEC, caving in to the desperation of the APC to cling to power at all costs.
“But I want to tell everyone of us that the good news is there’s light at the end of tunnel. The vision to Atikulate a new Nigeria is alive. I promise to bring that vision to fruition. I am in my seventies now, and the APC with state apparatus at their disposal, are hell bent on frustrating these efforts, but I assure you my Atikulated Family, that this fight will not stop, will never stop” he said.
“Even if I turn a hundred years old, I will continue the fight for a New Nigeria. A Better Nigeria for all of us. They will continue to lie. They will say I am not Nigerian. They will send committee after committee to come ask me to give up fighting for the Mandate you gave me, but the fact remains, WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP!’
“Ladies and gentlemen of the Atikulated family, keep the faith.”
