Remember Eunice Atuejide, the presidential candidate of the National Interest Party (NIP), whom ACEGIST once reported how she shocked her supporters that she might also be voting for the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar? Well, she has finally shelved her ambition to fully endorse Atiku.
39-year-old Ms Atuejide who once confessed she believes in Atiku after watching his performance during a live interview, ‘The Candidates,’ confirmed her stepping down from the presidential race in a statement she issued on Wednesday.
Ms Atuejide stated that she has learnt enough to realise that the 2019 presidential election is between Atiku and President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Presidential candidate further added that the years of President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime have proven to be worse than those of the PDP.
“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.
