Atiku’s Support Group Dumps PDP For APC



A support group for the election of the presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, Diplomatic Youth Movement of Nigeria (DYMN), has dumped the party.

The group is now working for the reelection of the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), as the group formerly joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) Committee of Youth Mobilisation and Sensitisation (CYMS).

The national coordinator of DYMN, Malam Yunusa Mohammed, said that the group decided to declare their support for the candidature of President Buhari to protect the interest of Nigerians and youths especially.

He spoke when he led some members of his organisation on a courtesy visit to the Chairman of the CYMS Board of Trustee, Mr Festus Uchenna.

We support and strategise for any candidate we trust and want to work for, we have mobilisers across the federation who serve as our foot soldiers.

“Elections are actually worn at the grassroots, and that is our base, from where we are going to start working from,” he said.

Mohammed noted that the group will enhance the engagement of Nigerians at the grass root as regards the achievements of the Buhari led APC administration, which has not really been robust.

Mr Obinna Nwaka, CYMS Director-General who received the group, said President Buhari had done so well, and had given youths of the country a sense of belonging.

He noted that President Buhari has done well in the area of security and economy, even though he met an empty treasury when he came on board as president.

Nwanka said Nigerians, especially youths would forever, leave to remember what President Buhari was currently doing for the country.

He maintained that it was God`s plan for Buhari to be the country`s president at this point in time, adding that he deserve a second term to consolidate on his achievements so far.

“It is now our responsibility to give him the required support by re-electing him on Feb. 16, so that he will continue the good work God has assigned him to do at this period.

“The re-election of Buhari should be a collective effort irrespective of our political affiliations, tribe and standings in the society so that he can continue to consolidate on his achievements,” he said.
