Unic Press UK: The Northern Stakeholders Forum (NSF) has endorsed the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar’s bid to be the next Nigerian president, saying that the incumbent president Muhammadu Buhari had disappointed Nigerians.
The NSF Director for Action and Mobilisation, Aminu Adam said:
“Buhari has failed to fulfil his campaign promises, especially in the areas of economy, corruption and security. Look at how killings are becoming the order of the day. People of Zamfara have turned to refugees as a result of incessant killings. Likewise Katsina, Kaduna, Taraba, Benue states and other places. That is why we have now decided to try Atiku Abubakar because we believe in his integrity and compassion for the masses. We also believe in his ability to perform better than Buhari,” the Daily Post of Nigeria reports.
Atiku is also endorsed by all the major socio-cultural bodies in Nigeria – the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo (southern Nigeria), Northern Elders Forum (northern Nigeria), Pan-Niger Delta forum (Southern Nigeria), the Middle Belt Forum (northern Nigeria), Afenifere (southern Nigeria), Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (northern Nigeria). This is a another priceless endorsement, a major boost for the PDP.
Unic Press UK latest poll illustrates a landslide victory for the former vice president of Nigeria and PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate and former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi. This new survey, carried out 7 days to the election is a remarkable shift – a change from the initial poll in January that was published on February 3 that revealed a “narrow victory” for the PDP’s presidential candidate.
About a week ago, the Williams and Associates, a notable Opinion Research & Consulting based in the United States predicted that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar would win the Nigeria Presidential Election 2019 if the contest is “free and fair,” saying:
“In all scenarios we can conclude that within the 2.5% +/- margin of error Atiku wins to Buhari in a free and fair election. In any other country we would be advising the candidate to ‘put the champagne on ice’. Over half of the survey have an unfavorable opinion of Buhari and his unfavorable rating is 10 points higher than his favorable rating. Atiku’s ratings are significantly in the positive at 62% favorable. A majority (54%) of the population now believe that Atiku will be the next President – 42% more than those who think Buhari will win,” the Williams and Associates, a notable Opinion Research & Consulting wrote in its January 2019 report to the Atiku Campaign Organization.
Nigeria General Election 2019 would hold on Saturday, the 16th February 2019, from 08:00 A M (Lagos time).
