SAHARANEWS – Ahead of Saturday’s Presidential election, Eunice Atuejide, the presidential candidate of the National Interest Party (NIP), has dropped out of the 2019 race and endorsed the Presidential candidate of People’s Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar
In a statement made available to SaharaNews, Eunice revealed that she has learnt enough to realise that the 2019 presidential election is between Atiku and President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Presidential candidate who further disclosed that PDP’s bad leadership in government began between 1999 and 2015 added that Buhari’s APC has done “a much worse job from 2015 to 2019”, as she endorsed Atiku Abubakar.
“To my mind, the political party platform is not the real issue nonetheless, it’s either Alhaji Atiku Abubakar under the PDP or President Buhari under the APC this time. I make bold to state unequivocally that I stand with Atiku under the PDP this time,” she said.
“I believe strongly that a Nigeria led by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will drastically reduce the suffering we have all endured under the President Buhari led maladministration.
“I believe we will come out of the bottom pile of all human development indices, particularly the crown of being the poverty capital of the world.
“I believe there will be respect for human life, less nepotism, tribalism, religious fanaticism, insensitivity and outright disregard for the wishes of the Nigerian people.
“I strongly believe more competent Nigerians will be brought together from different places of origin, religions, creeds, genders, ages, backgrounds etc. to form the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar led government.
“And I believe he would select that government to include the best Nigerians from every corner of the country,” she added.
