He stated that the current situation in northeast and Nigeria is nothing close to what he has seen in his years of both political and other experience in the country.

In his words, “My hope and prayers, are that just as we have come together and gathered here, we will continue to be together and work for the success of our movement and to change the ugly situation of Nigeria and Nigerians.

“I have received your calls seeking me to contest for president again, I really appreciate you all and your offer to buy the nomination form for me at whatever price it is pegged. I pray that our success would mean the best and good for Nigeria and Nigerians in general.”

Speaking earlier chairman of the Northeast Business Communities for Atiku 2023, Adamu Bappayo explained that the group was made up of both members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and other political parties in the region.

He said that the movement was to support and work for the success of the former VP to ensure improvement on the socio-economic and political dimensions of the country.

“We are businessmen and we know what businesses have faced under the present leadership of this country, we understand that Atiku is the best choice for this country and we will only support those that support him for the betterment of our country.”
