Atiku Pays Condolence Visit To The Family Of Late Sen. Ibrahim Mantu
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has paid a condolence visit to the family of late Senator Ibrahim Nasiru Mantu of Plateau State.
Atiku described the former senator as a nationalist who always put the interest of Nigeria first before any other thing.
He wrote: Today, I paid a condolence visit to the family of late Sen. Ibrahim Mantu, former Deputy Senate President. I prayed with the family and others that Almighty Allah would forgive his sins, grant him Aljannah Firdaus and comfort his loved ones.
In a related development, Atiku Abubakar explained that it won’t be strange if bandits and kidnappers register with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and demand inclusion on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).
Atiku addressed this today in Abuja during a national dialogue and public presentation of a book titled “Remaking Nigeria: Sixty Years, Sixty Voices.”
In his words
“We needed to fix Nigeria to avoid sleep-walking our way towards disaster. Yes, the Chibok girls had been kidnapped and held in captivity 7 years ago. Yes, conflicts between herders and farmers had been with us before 2016.
But who would have thought that our country would become a haven for kidnappers and all manner of bandits to the extent that their nefarious activities would become a major industry?
They have been allowed to operate so openly and brazenly that it would surprise no one if they applied for registration with the Corporate Affairs Commission and listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.
