Lagosians Are solidly behind Atiku
A group canvassing for the victory of the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the 2019 elections, Atikulated Agenda Lagos State Chapter, on Wednesday, said it had mobilized millions of Nigerians in support of its bid.
The group, which met in Lagos and elected its officers, said it was not deterred by attacks on its members by the ruling All Progressives Congress, noting that they would remain focused on their goal. Speaking at the event, the new chairman, Mrs. Abiola Adeniyi, said Lagosians are solidly behind Atiku. She noted that the group had mobilized market women in support of the PDP candidate.
Adeniyi noted that during her stint with a microfinance bank, she developed a good relationship with market women. She noted that Lagos market women had promised to work with her to ensure she delivers Lagos to Atiku.
She said her campaign had already started countering Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo’s distribution of money to market women in the state. The inauguration of the 28-member group was witnessed by a number of dignitaries including its South-West Zonal Co-ordinator, Hon. Habraham Olanrewaju.
Atikulated Agenda is in 50 nations of the world and in every state and ward across Nigeria. The group was formed by Chief Dr, Emeka C. Kalu, a United States-based businessman. The agenda of the group is to see that the vision of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (The Wazirin of Adamawa) comes to pass as they work to deliver Lagos to PDP and Atiku.
The Local government Leaders must have at last 40 members in every ward to stand at every pulling unit during an election and see to it that the opposition does not ring the election. Hon. HABRAHAM OLANREWAJU said that other members of the Atikulated agenda who left are already coming back to the group because they know what we stand for.
In my interview with the Director of Strategy Mr. Timothy about his strategic plan on how they will deliver Lagos come 2019 to their principal, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, (the Wazirin of Adamawa) said that they will do house-to-house campaigning, one of their strategies is to take up the opposition on the work done by this present administration versus that of their government which they lie to the citizens of Nigeria.
He said that it was a voting collation that brought the present government to power and when this government came to power he said “I belong to nobody and I belong to everybody,” he also said that the ten thousand Naira (#10,000) that the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is distributing out that the people should take the money because is our money which they are given to them but the people should not let Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and the ruling All Progressives Congress buy them with money which is what they are trying to do with Nigerian now and he said that is principal Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is a man of true federalism and he is not a religious bigot just like this government, he said that he does not have any fear that the election will not hold come February 2019 and if this government does that, the international comminutes are watching, and the international communities know what to do, the present administration knows that, so they will not do anything of such.
He said that they know that the riverine area of the state are the places which they use to manipulate election, and said that every area which has been identified as a place where election manipulation takes place they have put machinery in place to monitor and put an end to that, they have noted such area and they have their people everywhere to see to it and block everything to be done by the ruling parties, APC in manipulating the election . Mrs. Abiola Adeniyi the Lagos Co-Ordinator said that they have the market women with them and that the women have promised to work with her to see that she delivers Lagos to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar comes 2019 because she has had a good working relationship with women when she was working with a microfinance house which provides money for the market women to do their business.
She said that her principal is already making provision to counter what the vice-president is already doing by giving money to the market women and they are in the known of what the ruling parties APC is doing by attacking the PDP members in various part of the state. He said they have asked their members not to fight.
