Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party , Atiku Abubakar, has said that his latest endorsement by The Economist Magazine , has put to lies the recent claims made by the Minister of Information and Culture , Alhaji Lai Mohammed , that the international media is askance of his ( Atiku ’ s ) candidature .Atiku said the newspaper ’ s endorsement was the second having been endorsed by Policy magazine .
The former Vice – President said that the endorsement was based on the clarity of vision and the detailed policies of his candidate when compared to what he called “ the vague and empty promises of the incumbent All Progressives Congress administration of President Muhammadu Buhari . ”
Atiku , in a statement from his media office in Abuja on Friday , said that as ‘ the Economist ’ rightly states , the issues in 2019 are “ popular frustration over the rise in joblessness and poverty ( two of the biggest voter concerns ) on Mr . Buhari’ s watch , as well as growing insecurity in central Nigeria . ”
He added , “ No other candidate has the capacity to address these challenges , like Alhaji Atiku Abubakar , under whose watch as Chairman of the National Council on Privatisation , Nigeria had her highest growth in job numbers .
“ Indeed , His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar , is poised to translate the significant success he has made in his private business empire to the public sector .
“ This anticipation is responsible for the momentum he now enjoys in all the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria .
“ For the past one year , Mr . Abubakar has traversed the length and breadth of Nigeria , selling his plans , vision and policies to Nigerians .
“ Unfortunately , rather than do the same , the All Progressive Congress has focused on negative campaigning by slandering Mr . Abubakar ’ s past .
“ We are not surprised by their actions . When a man ’ s future intimidates people , they focus on lying about his past because they cannot compete in the present . However , we thank The Economist for proving that no matter how far and fast falsehood has travelled , it must eventually be overtaken by the truth . ”
