Atiku Abubakar who is a Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) states that in case of his presidency his annual salary will be only N1.

According to The Guardian, this decision of the presidential candidate is based on the intention to “give back to Nigeria for all that the country has done for him.” 

In the declaration of his 2015 presidential ambition Atiku states that he will continue to give back to Nigeria for as long as he is able and capable.

The Guardian’s source is confident that Atiku’s announced salary will  be mainly aimed at people-oriented charities of his choice.

The source said:  “I believe that Turaki may be considering taking a token salary of N1 not because he is endowed like so many others but to underscore his preparedness to make personal sacrifices in the quest to rebuild and reinvent our dear country and by so doing engender a culture of sacrifice in his envisaged administration”.

However, Coordinator of Atiku Media Office Mallam Garba Shehu said that he hadn’t any information on this question and didn’t hear anything about his decision. But he adds that nothing is off the table at the policy review retreat.

Meanwhile, the Policy Review Retreat promised by Atiku at the unveiling of his economic policy in Abuja October 15 kicks off on Monday at the Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta the Ogun State capital.

    This shows that Atiku is ready for service with the masses at heart and not running for himself.
    His policy documents are on point and a full tenure of service to the people without pay is also welcomed because I believe Atiku has a lot to offer and should be given a chance to lead.

Deploying Soldiers Not The Answer, Buhari Should Address Nigerians – Afe Babalola

Afe Babalola

Legal luminary and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Afe Babalola, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to address Nigerians over the violence that has erupted in the country following the #EndSARS protests.

He made the call on Wednesday in reaction to the recent happenings across the country following the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.

“Protests against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, otherwise known as SARS or FSARS, have spread to all parts of Nigeria and beyond.

“The deployment of soldiers to the streets is not the answer. The imposition of curfews is certainly not the answer,” Babalola said in a statement.

He said that he had before now appealed to President Buhari to please address the issue at that time.

“I now again plead with him to address the root causes of the pain which the youths are complaining about,” he said.

“The use of live bullets and other lethal weapons against protesting youths is not the answer. The killing of protesting youths is also not the answer.

“A protest both in fact and in law is analogous to a message which an injured toe sends to the brain complaining about unbearable pain,” said Babalola in his reaction to the shooting of the protesters.

He added, “The response by the brain and the head is normally to take steps to treat the pain to the toe.

“Any injured person who refuses to take steps to treat pains to any part of the body does so at his own peril.”
