The group which officially joined one of President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign organizations, the Arewa Network Group led by Abdulmajid Danbiliki Kwamanda said they decided to dump Atiku over their conviction that Nigeria would be better if President Buhari is given another mandate to return in 2019.
“For several years now, we have been working hard for the development of Atiku Care Foundation. A lot of promises were made when we started.
They told us that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar needed a platform to reach out to the masses at the grass root. We were committed because there were a lot of programmes from healthcare delivery, education, entrepreneurship, and youth and women empowerment.
“We started with our own money. Nobody gave us a dime because we believed that Atiku meant well for the nation; but unfortunately, we were abandoned at a time structure of the Foundation became solid. We were waiting all these while for Atiku to finance the programmes, only for us to hear how he splashed Dollars in Rivers state just to win the PDP presidential primaries,” he said.
