All Progressives Congress (APC) has two main aspirants who will contest to get 2015 presidential ticket. They are Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar. And NigerianBulletin has formed 4 criteria according to which Atiku should be the APC flagbearer.
1. Contribution to community
The source states that “Atiku loves Nigeria and he shows it in his own little way”. It is explained by the policy of Atiku after his office. His policy includes mentoring of several youths, doling out scholarships, empowering widows and creating hundreds of jobs.
The source marks that Buhari loves Nigeria because he just says it and Gen. Buhari keeps hiding under his self-proclaimed “poverty “to do no community work .
The percentage of presidential death in Africa is about 15%. In other words, 9 African leaders have died in the office since 2008.
That is why Nigeria can’t afford one more deadly presidential case. So, while Buhari’s supporters think that age of 72 is advance, actually it is shortage. No doubt, at 68 Atiku Abubakar has less chances to die in office.
3. Proposed Policy
Speaking on declaration of his presidential ambition Buhari noted 10 aspects he would base his policy on in case of his reelecting. And a couple weeks after the declaration Buhari lets us know that he intends to achieve his goals by fighting against corruption.
Atiku strategy is more certainly commended. And Atiku has gone ahead to present us with a draft of his policies.
