Atiku To Buhari: Fulfill Your Promise To Nigerians

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has urged President Muhammadu
Buhari-led All Progressives Congress administration to fulfil its promise to
Nigerians to make them feel safe again.

Atiku, who is the founder of
the American University of Nigeria group of schools in Yola, Adamawa State,
faulted an online report on one of the Chibok girls.

Faulting the report,
Atiku said, “Not everything is about 2019.”

The former
Vice-President said this in a statement signed on his behalf by his Media
Adviser, Mazi Paul Ibe, in Abuja, on Sunday.

Atiku was reacting to a
publication suggesting that one of the freed kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls,
attempted suicide to protest being compelled to attend one of his
schools.

He noted that he was not aware that anyone was being forced to
attend one of his schools.

“The Waziri Adamawa prays that those who have
suffered so much get all the treatment and support they need, and urgently calls
on the Federal Government to honour its promise to make Nigerians feel safe
again,” the statement said.

He said, “Unfortunately, the best intentions
can backfire. These girls are still healing, and clearly, the recent
deterioration of the security situation in the North-East has opened old
wounds.”

Meanwhile, there are indications that APC National Working
Committee members are divided on how to handle statements credited to Atiku and
the Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan.
