Atiku Behaving Like He Has Won Election
Former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu has been charged to focus on how to secure votes in his home state for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) first rather than giving false assurances to Atiku Abubakar about winning the 2023 presidency.
The caution was handed down on Wednesday by a group identified as the Northern Youths Movement (NYM) in a statement signed in Abuja by its Chairman, Mallam Ishaya Jato.
Going down memory lane, the group pointed out that even as a sitting governor, Aliyu lost Niger State in previous presidential elections, so he has no moral standing to be giving assurances about electoral victory to another person now that he is even out of office.
It also called on Atiku to get down to work on convincing Nigerians on why they should vote for him as the next leader of the country.
But NYM has now stated that such boastful statements and assurances are why Atiku himself has been going about like he has won the 2023 presidential election already.
The group said rather than relying on votes from Rivers State and other South-South States, Babangida Aliyu should strive to deliver Niger State to his party, PDP, for the first time since 2011.
It also called on Atiku to buckle up and prove to Nigerians that he won’t just be on the ballot and then flee to Dubai in the eventuality of losing the 2023 elections.
