As the 2023 general elections draw nearer, a political support group of the former vice president and presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party, PDP, Motion For Atiku (MFA) has insisted that only Atiku Abubakar has capacity to correct the several wrongs done in the polity by the APC-led government since 2015.

This comes as MFA insists that the country has witnessed a heightened deterioration in security, education, health, economy and politics since the inception of the APC government.

At a press briefing in Abuja on Sunday, the Director General of Motion For Atiku, Stephanie Oby Dike said time has come for Nigerians to speak decisively and vote out the APC government for a more pro-people governance which she said Atiku Abubakar will represent if elected as the country's president in 2023.

She said, "Our Movement and Group - Motion For Atiku is very passionate about enthronement of good governance in Nigeria. Over the years, especially since 2015, the country has been subjected to all forms of defective policies on security, education, economy and politics. 

"These defects have inflicted very deep injuries to the overall socio-political and economic activities to the country, thereby threatening her corporate co-existence and unity. 

"The negative effects of these are being severely felt by the citizens, especially the poor masses. The desire of Motion for Atiku is to support our presidential candidate in planning to salvage the country from the grip of a government that seems to be confused and totally inept. 

"The group members have been following the activities and contributions of His Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, towards the well-being of the country, long before he became the Vice President and ever since.

"Based on his many contributions and achievements, we are convinced that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Wazirin Adamawa, is the person that has the right vision, the will and ability to take the required bold decision that will make Nigeria work again. 

"It would be an honour to join forces together so as to enhance our commitment and contribution in making Nigeria work again" she said. 

Also speaking, one of the coordinators of the group, Mr. Muiltala Halilu listed the visions of the group to include, building an economically prosperous Nigerian nation, a true federation where everyone is happy and willing to sacrifice for the country, a country respected in the comity of nations among others. 

In his remarks, a member of the MFA Mr. Saeed Dantsoho expressed displeasure that Nigeria has been widely divided across regional and religious lines, which he attributed to poor leadership of APC. 

He said if elected as the next president, the former vice president will reunite the country as a nationalist, entrench a more prosperous nation for the benefit of all citizens.
