Yola - Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday in Yola inaugurated the secretariat of a group clamouring for him to contest the 2015 presidential election under the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Inaugurating the "Atiku Abubakar Support Group" office, Atiku lauded members of the group for mobilising support for the party.

Atiku said the APC remains the party to beat in 2015 because of its commitment to bring about positive change in Nigeria.

In his speech, the Director General of the group, Abdulrazak Namdaz, said their primary purpose was to mobilise the entire people of Adamawa to join and support APC.

Namdaz said the group had also observed the numerous challenges facing the nation, which required an experience leader like Atiku to tackle.

"We therefore call on the former Vice President to please take up the challenge and contest for the president in 2015 under the platform of APC.''

Also, the board chairman of the group, Abubakar Song, urged individuals and groups that share similar vision with them to join in forming a united front.
