Atiku said they are displaying hate speeches and dividing the nation by their utterances.

Segun Showunmi, image maker of  the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCO) revealed  the feelings of the Wazirin Adamawa in a statement on Tuesday made available to www.totorinews.com.

“We need to restate as directed by His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP that the 2019 election should be issue based, devoid of slandering and name calling.” he said.

“We hold the view that unguarded narrative hurts the country and further divides us as a people.

“Some of the consequences of previous mismanaged campaign efforts is perhaps the reason why there is little or no internal cohesion with its attendant security challenges

“We can campaign without recourse to hate speech, libel, lies, undue criminalization of people and each other.

“On our part we have signed up to running an issue-based campaign and if it is not too hard for the Muhammad Buhari administration and the APC to understand, we call on you to do the same.

“There is greater value in doing so. Nigeria is the most populous black nation on earth and we owe it to ourselves and the black race to be above board.

We are trying to present our idea on how the country should be led and not interested in anything else. And by so doing, set Nigeria and its people on the path of working again.”

Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation is focused on the issues of reviving the economy, poverty reduction and creating jobs for the youths in the country.
