Atiku Abubakar, and Waziri Adamawa is the highest employer of Labour with over two hundred and fifty workers employed in his private companies scattered all over Nigeria, especially in Niger Delta, a philanthropist, a detribalized Nigerian, a sound administrator and above all, a successful businessman, whose investments go beyond the shores of the country, adding that, even the less privileged such as widows, orphans, physically challenged, including youths from all parts of the country are still enjoying from the generosity of the former vice president.
The two leaders of the body also observed that Atiku is a strong believer in true federalism, restructuring, economic diversification which will ultimately pave way for sound economic prosperity through resource control and other economic policies that will fast-track the speedy development of the country, arguing further that his vast experience, contacts and connections from across the globe will certainly make the country work again, restore her past glory in readiness to compare and compete with other fast-developing countries of the world.
The duo also used the forum to thank all members of ACF across the country for their prayers, resilience, sacrifices and commitment to the cause of this great movement which has yielded positive results, stressing that their support and efforts are now seriously needed for the final and total victory for PDP flag bearers jostling for positions including the presidency in 2019 general elections.
