Coalition hails Atiku at 70, takes jibe at Buhari

25 November 2016, 10:10

Abuja - The Democracy Coalition has maintained its endorsement of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, for the presidency as he turned 70 on Friday.

The socio-political and advocacy group felicitated with him saying reaching that age was a feat no one in his family ever achieved.

Abubakar was deputy to Olusegun Obasanjo from 1999 to 2007.

“As our endorsed candidate for 2019 Presidential race which is only one year and seven months away from now, we wish him long-life, good health, strength and courage to face any harassment, blackmail and intimidation that may come his way in due time,” said Michael Williams, National Coordinator of Democracy Coalition.

The organisation launched another attack at the presidency of Muhammadu Buhari.

“We are not oblivious to the antics of the current regime in Nigeria,”said Williams.

“But take it from us that with the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America, compromised commitment of Obama's administration to democratic ideals in Nigeria would no longer be ignored.”

Democracy Coalition is affiliated to the United States Democracy Coalition Project .
