A Detribalized Nigeria Is Needed In 2023 – Atiku Campaigner
National Co-coordinator,, Honourable Aminu Bala, has said that only a detribalized Nigerian can rescue Nigeria from the present economic and socio-political woes urging all Nigerians to look in the direction of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to rescue the country and asked the former Vice-President to accept the call.
Hon. Bala made the call during a Press Luncheon in Abuja recently saying that the Country is “grasping for breath as the economic managers wobble from one policy misstep to the other, cluelessly settling on incessant borrowing as a cure-all solution to the nation’s economic woes,” adding that “Nigeria today has a mountain of debts that has become unsustainable despite the posturing of our current leaders.”
When reviewing the state of the nation, the National Co-coordinator noted that: “In 2014, a bag of rice was N8, 500.00 and now it is N35, 000.00, more than a Nigerian’s minimum wage. The foreign exchange rate was previously N160 to $1, but it has since increased to N580 to N600 to $1. In the past, fuel was sold at N87, but now there is no fuel at all.
Furthermore, Bala pointed out that, “Unemployment rate now is 43% which means that 43% of the population are unemployed. Inflation rate is very high that an average Nigerian cannot afford the basic daily needs of life, among other economic indicators” indicating the country needs a rescuer.
On the security situation in the country, the Atiku Rescue Nigeria National Co-coordinator added that: “In 2014, Boko Haram was restricted to the North Eastern part of the country, now they expand their tentacles to the North West and North Central. Banditry, kidnappings, ritual killings, political assassination, internet fraud (Yahoo yahoo) are the order of the day.”
According to him, “Nigerians can no longer sleep with their eyes closed. Farmers have abandoned their farmlands for fear of attacks; the country is in disarray and has no sense of direction.” Therefore, the country needs a Statesman, a unifier to give her the required sense of direction.
“Today, a decided Nigerian yearns for a unifier, a true Nigerian statesman that sees every part of the country as his own; there is no doubt that what Nigeria needs is unity more than anything else”. In his view, the solution lies in the aspirant to the presidency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
“The answer to this economic journey to nowhere is only Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a man who worked with his principal to free Nigeria from a debt overhang of over $30 billion accumulated by Nigerians over a period of time, when he was Vice-President and Chairman of the National Economic Council on Privatization between 1999 and 2007,” Bala concluded.
