He said the objectives of the media group which was formed by Rasheed Umah, was to publicise the programmes and activities of former Vice President through the conventional and social media.
“We will continue to work till the 2013 general elections in order to acquaint Nigerians with the activities of the former VP through the conventional and social media. We will let people know his programmes to ensure we achieve victory”.

His words, “Atiku has demonstrated his belief in peaceful co-existence through his personal relationship with Nigerians from all ethnic groups.
“Atiku is versatile and has demonstrated his love for every Nigerian in his business and other areas of life. And that is why he didn’t hesitate to pick our brother, Peter Obi as his running mate in the 2019 general elections”.
“What the country needs after the exit of the present administration is a government that will heal the wounds of the country by accommodating every Nigerian. Atiku and Peter Obi represents that unity”
