Atiku Abubakar, the former President of Nigeria and the People’s Democratic Party presidential candidate at the last election, has urged children not to give up on Nigeria.
Atiku Abubakar, the People’s Democratic Party presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, has urged Nigerian children, both home and abroad, never to lose hope in their country.
The former vice president, in his statement released on Monday by his media aide, Paul Ibe, tells children that they are the future of Nigeria as they celebrate Children’s Day across the country.
“No matter how tough and trying the situation in the country may appear today, Nigerian children must believe that things can and will get better.
“This conviction will help them see in themselves the solutions to the multiple challenges our country faces.
“It will strengthen them not to turn their backs on their country at a time when she needs them most, no matter how rosy life may appear in other shores.
“From chess champions to acclaimed artists, Nigerian children have been in the international headlines recently for exceptional achievements despite all odds.
“These shining lights are just some examples of the potential in you, our children,” the statement read.
