APC, Only Hope For Common Man –Atiku

Former vice president, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, has said that only the All Progressives Congress (APC) can give succour to the common man in the country.

Atiku stated this in a chat with journalists in Lagos on Saturday  at the sixth Bola Tinubu Colloquium with the theme: “Summit of the common man.” The colloquium is an annual event to mark the birthday of the national leader of the APC, Senator Bola Tinubu.

The former vice president said that the theme of this year’s colloquium,which featured presentations of the challenges of everyday living by ordinary Nigerians, was in line with the manifesto of the opposition regarding downtrodden Nigerians.

He stated that, “it is part of the APC political ideology that emphasises on the common man,” that the party’s  strategy to improve the lot of the country would be made clearer when the campaigns start.
Present at the colloquium were: APC interim Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande; a former military Head of State, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd); Chief Segun Osoba, Governors Ibikunle Amosun, Rauf Aregbesola, Kayode Fayemi and Chibuike Amaechi of Ogun, Osun, Ekiti and Rivers  states respectively, Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State paid glowing tributes to the celebrant.
