  1. These are challenges facing Nigeria today. I This therefore is not a time to take chances. We need a thinking man. A man who can make d impossible. Like when ran Lagos successfully when Obasanjo expected his government to collapse by withholding d allocation of funds to d state for years. It is a miracle worker who can survive such a situation. Atiku in my view is “money miss road man. Cosmetic man. He established a university in Nigeria & called it Amecan University. Why? The University in my view should been of d standard available in America. That means it conception behind d University is cosmetic. Another thing why I can’t vote him is his privatisation policy. Have a look at d companies they privaticed. How many have impacted positively on the economy? He had be honest enough to say he would sell government enterprises TO HIS FRIENDS. Mention one establishment which today after 15years offer employment to more people or add to Nigeria’s wealth. WHY THEN WERE THEY SOLD AT GIVE AWAY PRICES. Like d cosmetic brain that engineered d astablishment of American University in Nigeria, he had read it somewhere that privatisation has its benefits
    NOW IS NOT THE TIME OF DREAMERS TO DIRECT OUR AFFAIRS. WE NEED THINKERS. That is why I can’t vote for Atiku.or any gambler
