– Atiku Abubakar urges Nigerians not to despair or lose hope in the country
– He says the current economic recession will soon give way to economic prosperity
– Atiku says Nigerians, particularly the Muslims must learn to be their brothers keepers
Former vice president Atiku Abubakar has said the current recession will soon give way to economic prosperity.
This comes even as All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain urged Nigerians to pray and believe on President Muhammadu Buhari to restore the nation’s economy in good health and improve the lives of the people, The Nation reports.
In a message released by his media office in Abuja, Atiku said Nigerians, particularly the Muslims must learn to be their brothers keepers.
According to him, so much need to be done to achieve economic prosperity as a lot of things were left undone for too long by the nation’s past leaders.
While congratulating Muslims on the celebration of the festival of Eid el-Kabir celebration, Atiku urged them to use the opportunity to reflect on the situation in the country and support themselves.
He said: “Nigerians should celebrate like other people in the world in spite of the economic situation facing the country.
“Sallah celebration calls for sober reflection, prayers, cooperation and the display of solidarity among Nigerians so that no one feels left out.”
Atiku Abubakar recently praised ex-military head of state, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida for his contributions to Nigeria’s unity.
Speaking in a statement to celebrate IBB’s birthday, Atiku noted that IBB’s political and economic contributions to Nigeria remain visible to this day even though he has left power for well over 20 years.
