The statement read in part, “Atiku Abubakar is a remarkably committed leader, a strong epitome of our national cohesiveness, a statesman to the core and an excellent administrator, who spared nothing, as a leader and businessman, in the pursuit of the overall good of our nation.

“Indeed, the overwhelming support and solidarity he received from Nigerians across the divide in the 2019 general election is a resounding testimony of the confidence the people have in him as a leader.”

The NGF through its chairman, Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, described Atiku as an accomplished politician, businessman and philanthropist.
