2019: Only Atiku can move Nigeria forward, says Shattima . … says Buhari’s administration is filled with lies and deceit


Leader of the Northern Youth Coalition, Yerima Shettima, has declared that only the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar That can move Nigeria forward.

Shettima, who stated this in a chat with The Guardian, said the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has nothing to offer Nigerians.

He urged Nigerians not to repeat the mistake of voting for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election, stressing that the APC government is filled with ‘lies and deceit.’

According to him, Atiku would win the election and help in taking Nigeria out of the woods.

His words: “The ruling APC had at all levels indulged in cheap deception, especially in the first two years that it came to power.

“The year 2018 is one particular moment in the history of Nigeria that I will never forget in a hurry. Elected leaders from local government to the presidency were committing a lot blunders.”

He expressed concern about the economy, which has been worst hit, as it seems Nigerians will hopelessly move into 2019 with an embarrassingly weak naira.

“A naira on a free fall for three years has exposed the lies and deceit of the ruling party. For now, it is obvious that the lies and deceit of the past four years have come to an end,” he added.
