    Atiku is very correct. This is not time for any of the aspirants to be thinking of the easy way out but time for all to be on the final lap of the campaign with the people and hope for the best result possible.
    I have no doubt that my preferred candidate Atiku Abubakar will emerge winner and become the party’s flag bearer because he is very prepared and experience for the task ahead and I believe he will do very well if we give him our mandate come 2015.
    His popularity is cut across the entire country as any true leader should and with him CHANGE is sure. #ANigeriaForAll.

      SirOscie, how sure are you about the change with Atiku? Not as if I’m doubting you but just want to be further convinced that a man who had rule Nigeria for 8years still have much to offer more than what he did while in previously in power???
