Business group declares support for Atiku 




Atiku Abubakar


A pressure group, Nigerian Business Communities (NBC), has given reason why it is supporting the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa.

The group said its position was influenced by business background and investment of the PDP candidate.
The group stated this  in Lagos Sunday through its  South west convener, Mr Oluwatosin Abiola.

He said the group was galvanising support for the PDP candidate because of his interest in business, and his readiness to engage the players if he emerge president.

Abiola said: “We are not politicians, we are business owners. We want to influence voters to vote Atiku/Okowa because we are sure when he gets into government, we will get the returns appropriately.


“Our goal is to support anyone that can grow business. It is business people that drive economy. We don’t want our business to continue to crumble and crash. We must demand good and visionary leaders. We need to know who our managers are.


“It is good to support that presidential candidate who has vowed to engage us- a major stakeholders. It is high time for us to take this opportunity to fully engage in mobilising our people in the South- west.


“It is not about sentiment, it is about our future. A lot of our youth have left the country in recent years because they see no hope in her again. We should take our destiny in our hands,” the group said.
