A group, Northern Democratic Movement for Good Governance (NDMG), has called on patriotic Nigerians irrespective of tribe and religion to rally round the candidature of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to become the president in order to rescue Nigeria from the present state of stagnation.
The group praised the decision of a popular social critic and former Tinubu’s presidential campaign director, Hajia Naja’atu Mohammed, for ditching the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
In a statement issued yesterday by the coordinator of the group, Mallam Danladi Bashir Abu, NDMG urged Nigerians to consider the need to enthrone competence over “narrow and parochial interest in their choice of a new leader for the country.”
“Her (Naja’atu) action is a patriotic move that must be lauded by all and sundry, especially those who have the love of the country at heart,” he said.

The group added that what the country needs at this time is a mentally and physically fit leader to steer it away from its current path of underdevelopment.
