This write up is not to campaign for Alahji Atiku or motivated by the Atiku campaign team but my own opinion as a Nigerian.
2019 is fast approaching and Nigerians are left with few options of who and who to choose as our next president.
It is no longer news that both the PDP and the APC being the major political party in Nigeria today have decided to zone the Presidential ticket to the North yet again in the 2019 Presidential run up but as a Nigerian and a compatriot, I believe the only Candidate for the job is only Alahji Atiku Abubakar.
We have made several mistakes in the past by voting politicians without any visible business background, or a manager of his/her own company that is known and running till date, from OBJ to GEJ and our present President Buhari.
To rebuild Nigeria at this stage of depression, one will have to seek of an option of a solid business man who has succeeded in his own business, because managing a complex country like Nigeria requires better business sense and management skills which Alahji Atiku is the only person amongst the options that posses these qualities.
According to Vanguard online on his Business background, Alahji Atiku started out in the real estate business during his early days as a Customs Officer. In 1974 he applied for and received a 31,000 naira loan to build his first house in Yola, which he put up for rent. From proceeds of the rent he purchased another plot, and built a second house. He continued this way, building a sizeable portfolio of property in Yola. In 1981 he moved into agriculture, acquiring 2,500 hectares of land near Yola to start a maize and cotton farm. The business fell on hard times and closed in 1986. “My first foray into agriculture, in the 1980s, ended in failure,” he wrote in an April 2014 blog. He then ventured into trading, buying and selling truckloads of rice, flour and sugar. His most important business move came while he was a Customs Officer at the Apapa Ports. Gabrielle Volpi, an Italian businessman in Nigeria, invited him to set up Nigeria Container Services (NICOTES), a logistics company operating within the Ports. NICOTES would go on to provide immense wealth to Atiku.
If not for anything, Alahji Atiku has shown the world that one can actually start a business from the scratch and build it to a success levels, his business history also shown that one can actually fall but the ability to rise and start again makes him/her a success, just as he failed in some areas but refused to accept defeats as he rise again and perfect his mistakes.
As a Nigerian I believe Alahji Atiku is the only beautiful bride that can turn things around based on his business sense and skills. The present hardship Nigerians are facing today is as a result of bad management and policy. Somebody like Alhaji Atiku with his business sense will correct the blunder of this present administration if given a chance as he has always shown interest to serve his country yet again. I think Nigerians need to make do of this option and I strongly believe Nigeria will feel the real change by standing with Alahji Atiku Abubakar.
God bless Nigeria.
