Atiku best candidate to change the ‘Change’ – Gbenga Daniel
The Director General, Atiku Campaign Organisation and former governor, Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, has joined in calling for the desired change in the country because “the change we have now is not what we envisaged”.
The former governor who spoke in a chat with newsmen, declared that the desire of most Nigerians is “to change the change” which is why the country needs the person of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who is a better option come 2019,” he said.
According to him the indices has shown that the country has not improved. “Poverty knows no tribe and those who genuinely voted for Buhari thought their lives would change. Nigerians are saying that their lives are not better”.
The former Governor hinged his conviction on Atiku as the best candidate for the PDP on the fact that “APC has not faired any better and we need someone who has the ability to govern the country and understands the new world economy”.
On the issue of corruption, he said that the APC is no less corrupt and we have come to see that it is not endemic to PDP.
He also disclosed that what the country needs is a system that works. “That’s why you see that countries where the system works give less regard to persons in office”.
“Gone are the days government put money here and there; just put in place necessary structures and investors will bring their money. The oil we so much depend on, those who buy are looking at other sources. So we must support someone who will create an environment for venture capitalists”.
“He is not a fundamentalist but a man who accommodates and respects everyone’s religious views and leanings. We need somebody who is widely exposed, versatile and understands the country.”
“Quite a number of people want to be president but don’t even know their state well, let alone having the grasp of the problems of Nigeria. Of all those in the race, Atiku is above everyone.
“We were in Delta, Taraba, Bayelsa, Adamawa among other states; we know what we heard. Also remember that earlier in the month, PDP and about 38 parties came together. The alliance is the first of its kind in the country, so 2019 will be decisive”.
Daniel however called on the media to take a position as those who are the interface to the people so that we can have the desired change.
