The Atikulated Global Movement (AGM) says former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar will restore hope in the country by addressing Nigeria’s security and economic challenges, if elected in the 2023 presidential election.
Hajiya Maryam Atiku-Abubakar, group national leader said this at the inauguration of a movement to unite former aspirants and candidates of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), ahead of the 2023 general election in Abuja on Saturday.
Maryam said it was necessary for the candidates and former aspirants to unite for the party’s victory in 2023.
“Everyone here knows this election is our chance to restore hope to millions of Nigerians who crave for better life.
“So, as we gather here today to reflect on the theme of this event, we should all remember that from the lowest office to the highest, with the new electoral act, we are connected in victory and defeat.
“We must go back to our units and wards and ensure that we come together, pull resources together and ensure that PDP is successful at all levels,” she said.
According to her, the emergence of Atiku as Nigeria’s president will restore hope, address insecurity and improve the nation’s economy.
“The 2023 election is not just about acquiring power or attaining positions and titles; it is our opportunity to restore this country to a prosperous one once again.
“Nigeria is ours, a country that has given so much to many of us. Hence, we must seek a chance at a better life for many of our fellow citizens,” she said.
Also, Ms Bolanle Sarumi-Aliyu, Founder and National Chairperson, AGM said the movement was aimed at pulling together vast resources of aspirants to support party candidates at all level.
“We are focused on bringing the necessary solutions to usher in a new government in 2023.
“We are Nigerians from different tribes, races, religions, professions and genders at home in Nigeria and in the Diaspora who wish to work for the successful emergence of a brand-new President of the Federation,” she said.
She promised that the group would mobilise at least 37 million votes for the party during the 2023 presidential election.
Mrs Nikky Onyeri, National Vice Chairperson, AGM said that 15,000 former aspirants of the party were part of the movement to mobilise support for the party at all levels.
Mr Oladimeji Fabiyi, Director General, Support Groups and Events, Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation, charged the group to use the advantage of the new Electoral Act to mobilise support at the grassroots.
