Fifty-nine groups working towards the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, have endorsed former Vice-President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Stating their support for Atiku Tuesday at a press conference in Abuja, the groups explained that they decided to back the PDP candidate because the current administration “has failed”.

Speaking, the National coordinator of the Grassroots Mobilisers for Buhari (GMB),Yusuf Ardo, accused the Buhari led administration of failing to appoint youths.

He stated that the group has over five million members, who toured the length and breadth of Nigeria to campaign for Buhari in 2015.

He said: “We toured the country and campaigned for the emergence of the current APC led government. This forum coordinated all support groups for APC and championed Grassroots Mobilizations of Nigerians.

“We are sad, that the government we put in place has failed and continues to fail our people; we cannot continue to reinforce failures.

“How can we have a federal cabinet without a single youth? A government that does not take the youths into account is a dying government; the future belongs to we the young people.

“Unemployment has risen to an alarming level, instead of creating three million jobs per year as promised during the 2015 campaign, millions of jobs are being lost quarterly, with many companies folding up.”

Jargo further expressed optimism that Atiku will revive the economy.

He said: “We strongly believe that Atiku will ensure diversification of the economy through Agriculture, adequate supply of power, massive industrialization, thereby creating employment for our teaming youths.

“Our predicament and future of the youth in Nigeria is highly threatened, that is why we have resolved one hundred percent to support Atiku Abubakar, come 2019.

When contacted, spokesman of the reelection campaign of Buhari, Festus Keyamo, said: “They are not genuine pro-Buhari groups. They are mercenaries looking for what to eat.”
