ON THE EVE OF A NEW YEAR - ATIKU
the presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP) has given his goodwill message and wishes for the new year to be born tonight. My dear fellow citizens, As 2018 comes to an end and 2019 beckons, on behalf of my family and I, let me wish you and your family a very happy New Year in advance. In 2018, we became the world headquarters for extreme poverty, however, I am convinced that in 2019, if we chart a new course, we can become the world headquarters for hope and extreme devotion to the cause of lifting our people out of poverty. 2019 is as yet a blank page. As a nation, we must not settle for whatever it brings. Rather, we must take collective action, through our choices, in making it a year where we revive national hope, with visionary leadership that sees our economy and institutions working again as they did in our golden era. We can chart a new course and open a new chapter that sees every Nigerian living in peace and prosperity with their neighbour.
