Ahead of the forthcoming general elections, the presidential candidate of the National Interest Party, Eunice Atuejide, has withdrawn from the race to endorse Atiku Abubakar.
The 39-year-old politician announced this in a statement personally signed and released to journalists on Wednesday.
She stated that she has learnt a lot that the 2019 presidential election is between Atiku and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari.
Atuejide who disclosed that PDP’s bad leadership in government began between 1999 and 2015 added that Buhari’s APC has done “a much worse job from 2015 to 2019”.
“To my mind, the political party platform is not the real issue nonetheless, it’s either Alhaji Atiku Abubakar under the PDP or President Buhari under the APC this time. I make bold to state unequivocally that I stand with Atiku under the PDP this time,” she said.
“I believe strongly that a Nigeria led by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will drastically reduce the suffering we have all endured under the President Buhari led maladministration.
“I believe we will come out of the bottom pile of all human development indices, particularly the crown of being the poverty capital of the world.
“I believe there will be respect for human life, less nepotism, tribalism, religious fanaticism, insensitivity and outright disregard for the wishes of the Nigerian people.
“I strongly believe more competent Nigerians will be brought together from different places of origin, religions, creeds, genders, ages, backgrounds etc. to form the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar led government.
“And I believe he would select that government to include the best Nigerians from every corner of the country,” she added.
