He said, “If you know the background of Atiku, he lost his father at the age of 11, he built house for his mother at 15.

“The point I am making here is that Atiku is a master. He knows poverty and meaning of poverty. A man who turned around his life and that of his community can turn around the national economy.

“Atiku has firms and has microfinance companies that give loans to women. He thought when you invest in women, you invest in the nation because all families will be involved.”

Yusuf described his boss as the man with passion on businesses adding that government can not provide jobs to everybody.

“Atiku is the man who understands businesses he understands that private sector is the one that creates jobs,” he added.
