The Women and Youth Support Group, WAYS, has thrown its weight behind the presidential ambition of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, saying it believes he has what it takes to turn the country’s economy around and create jobs for the teeming youths.
WAYS National President, Mrs. Kemi Adesanya-Eboda, said this in a statement on Sunday.
According to her, it was for this reason that the group decided to back Atiku’s presidential ambition for 2019 and was also calling on others to queue behind the ex-VP.
The group has realised that youths and women in the country are vital to Atiku’s ambition, hence, the need to reach out to them, she added.
Adesanya-Eboda said, “Atiku is vastly knowledgeable in the economy and will create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths in the country as well as involve more women in government if he becomes the President. The former Vice-President equally has the experience and mature disposition required to govern a multi-ethnic society like Nigeria. Atiku is an upright man who stands on the pillar of truth and social justice, who will bring the country out of its present socio-economic problems when he finally becomes the President of Nigeria.”
Mr. Atiku was vice president from during the Obasanjo presidency.
