Youths adopts Atiku as candidate for 2019 presidential poll


The National Youths Mobilization (NYM) has adopted former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as its candidate for the 2019 presidential election.

National coordinator of NYM, Hassan Waziri Chinade, said the decision to adopt Atiku followed a rally organized by the youth of the six geopolitical zones of the country in Yola, Adamawa State.

The youth comprised delegates from the South West, South South, North Central, North West, North East and South East.

“Nigeria is in an auto-pilot with no one in charge,” he claimed.

Chinade said, “Atiku Abubakar has promised to reverse these negative trends by leading a government that will invest in its people because people constitute the wealth of any nation,” he said.
