Director General of `Atiku Shall Lead Nigeria 2019’, Mr Patrick Agida, has promised to deliver 90 per cent of Cross River State votes to the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in 2019.
According to Agida, who spoke with reporters in Calabar, Atiku’s chances of getting over 90 per cent of the votes was premised on the sterling performance of Governor Ben Ayade.
He said that the group which cuts across all the states in Nigeria was made up of people with great concern to canvass for massive votes for Atiku in 2019.
According to him, the group had mobilized all its members across the country to polling units to ensure that Atiku’s votes are protected and counted.
The DG said that the group seeks to make a change in leadership at the national level through the ballot in a free and fair election.
“Nigeria is facing serious challenges and we believe that we need capable hands that will move this country forward. As a political support group, we are going to give Atiku 90 per cent of the votes from Cross River.
“This group is all over Nigeria. We have structures at the national, zonal, states, wards and units. We are all over Nigeria and knowing that it is only through the ballot box that our principal can win,’’ he said.
He said that Atiku will improve the economy and provide security for all Nigerians if elected president, adding that with a better economy and security, every other sector in the country will be affected.
He described Atiku as an employer of labour, saying that the former Vice President knows the appropriate government policies to use in promoting the economy if he becomes president.
He urged security agencies and the Independent National Electoral Commission to be transparent and fair to all political parties during the conduct of the polls.
