Atikulated Youth Force, an online campaign aimed at galvanising support for the presidential aspiration of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar says it is targeting at least 40 million youths ahead of the 2019 presidential polls.
A statement released by its spokesperson Stanley Ebosie in Abuja on Sunday noted that since the emergence of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in May 29 2015, Nigeria has experienced one of the most trying and devastating periods in the nation’s history.
“Nigeria has never been so divided across religious and ethic lines as it is today. Millions of jobs have been lost, lives have been wasted and communities have been sacked under a leadership that has betrayed the very essence of its emergence into power nearly four years ago. We cannot continue on this path. The Atikulated Youth Force is built on the knowledge that young people have power like never before to shape the direction of governance.
“We are using the power of new media technology to galvanise an existing army of young Nigerians who are disoriented with the status quo. We are mobilising this army behind Atiku because we are confident in his ability to lead Nigeria to the promised land.
“Riding on the mantra of “The Future in Our Hands”, across the next few weeks, Atikulated Youth Force will be at the vanguard of telling the compelling story of a new Nigeria that is possible under an Atiku presidency. We will also be leading the charge in mobilising young Nigerians online and offline to join the growing movement of Atikulated Nigerians” the statement said.
