Adamawa: Group commends Atiku for creating jobs despite “betrayals”

Atiku Abubakar, A Former President of Nigeria

A socio-political group, Adamawa Think-Tank, has commended former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for creating jobs for the indigenes of the state despite what it called “serial betrayal” or lack of reciprocation by the people.

The chairman of the group, Danladi Danasabe in a telephone interview on Tuesday said besides the state government, Mr. Atiku is the highest employer of labour.

“I can confidently tell you that in terms of finances, the Turaki even spends more than the state government‎ as far as wage bill is concerned.”

Mr. Danasabe said Atiku’s companies such as the Faro group, Gotel TV and Radio stations, the American University of Nigeria and others have provided direct and indirect jobs to more than ‎50,000 citizens of the state.

He said despite all these laudable efforts,‎ the people, especially politicians turn their backs on the former vice president.

“The most annoying thing is that we understand many of the delegates to the nat‎ional convention of the APC which produced Muhammadu Buhari as the party’s candidate did not vote for Turaki, that is most unfortunate,” he said.

The Think Tank said after the primary election, they feared that Atiku has “had it” with the people.
“To our surprise he came back and set up two more new factories, an extension to Faro juice chain and an animal feed production company.

Mr. Danasabe called on Atiku to continue with his investments assuring him that “the ordinary man on the street remains grateful and appreciative”.

    Unfortunately your party re more interested in getting power for themselves instead empowering Nigeria. show your support for the GEJ train of transformation because you know thats the train to empower Nigeria. #GEJ4NAIJA

    • Mr. Abdin

      What do you mean by transformation is it the non payment of salaries and the high level of corruption in the land? Please your GEJ is an apology. God save Nigeria from failures.

  • Mr. Abdin

    Carry on Turaki with your good work no matter the amount of betrayers by the people that is politics and God will see us through.

    Very well said Mr.Dan’Asabe, Atiku has shown Nigerians and the people of Adamawa that he means well for the common man and he has shown continue to show that against all odds and I commend him for being a statesman and also for always playing the big brother role and wish other politicians and wealthy Nigerians will follow his footsteps to better the lives of Nigerians not minding the obstacles they face and where it’s coming from.
    All I have to say is Kudos to Turakin Adamawa, You are really a role model to we the young ones.

    Long live our statesman and philanthropist.

    Stup*d Danladi Danasabe, a man is expanding his business empire and you are claiming he is doing the people a favour. You think if his business is not profitable, he will keep opening more factories. Do these guys have brain at all?

    It is because he is under OBJ spell. There is a curse on him. The name of the curse is “na laugh I dey laugh”. Whatever good he does, people keep laughing and not taking him serious. He need some spiritual bathing.
