2019: What is really at stake?

As politicians and other stakeholders make permutations towards the general elections in 2019, nothing has become as unclear and dreadful as what fortunes may befall the country in the days ahead. And the reasons for this are evident in the current state of the nation: The country of about 200 million people is afflicted by and inflicted with dishonest special purpose vehicles as political parties and unscrupulous characters masquerading as public office holders. This newspaper has even had to describe the country’s political leaders as Nigeria’s own genre of ‘natural disasters’ just as the earthquakes and tsunamis that despoil other countries. The prayer, therefore, is: May they not do any more damage than have already been done and may the people of Nigeria rise up to their responsibility as owners of the nation’s sovereignty.

The man Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who on Sunday emerged as the presidential candidate of the major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 election was born on November 25, 1946 to a Fulani family in Adamawa State.

He is a dogged, seasoned and experienced Nigerian politician who has been relevant in the socio-political space for over three decades. He has leadership skills with capacity that has been manifest in the various roles he has occupied since the 80s.
