I Started Out As An Orphan Selling Firewood On The Streets Of Adamawa - Atiku
Atiku speaking during his policy plan live on Facebook and Twitter
Speaking during the launch of his presidential campaign via a live broadcast on his verified Twitter handle, @atiku, the presidential candidate of PDP, Atiku Abubakar, revealed that growing up was hard as a child, adding that he started out as an orphan selling firewood on the streets of Jada in present day Adamawa State.
The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain and vice president, on Monday, Atiku said, “I started out as an orphan selling firewood on the streets of Jada in Adamawa, but God, through the Nigerian state, invested in me and here I am today.
"If Nigeria worked for me, I owe it as my duty to make sure that Nigeria also works for you.” 
The influential politician, Atiku noted in his declaration that it was time to get Nigeria Working again, saying, “I appeal to you to join me on this journey towards a better life for all Nigerians.”

“Today we will begin the process of sharing our policies that form my plan to create jobs, restructure the polity, and Get Nigeria Working Again.

“If elected President, I will be pro-active in attracting investments and supporting the 50 million small and medium scale enterprises across Nigeria for the purpose of doubling the size of our Gross Domestic Product to US$900 billion by 2025.


“These investments will create a minimum of 2.5 million jobs annually and lift at least 50 million people from poverty in the first 2 years.

“My team and I will also help create jobs by innovating flagship programmes such as the National Open Apprenticeship Programme through which we shall enhance the capacity of Master-Craftsmen and women to train 1,000,000 new apprentices every year.

“Our National Innovation Fund and SME Venture Capital Fund initiatives will provide stable and sustainable long-term support to aspiring entrepreneurs.

“My plan to restructure Nigeria will lead to a vast increase in the Internally Generated Revenue both for the Federal Government and the states via the matching grants that we will provide to state governments that increase their own revenue.

“Let me be clear no state will receive less funding than they get today – in fact all will receive more and the harder a state works the more they will get.

“And I am not just presenting these policies to you, I want you to own them. Take a look at them.

“You can view them at http://www.Atiku.org and on the pamphlets that we are making available to the public, you will have an opportunity to provide your feedback.”

5-Year-Old Boy Gets Expensive Mercedes After Doing 4,105 Press-Ups In 2 Hours

5-Year-Old Boy Gets Expensive Mercedes After Doing 4,105 Press-Ups In 2 Hours
Rakhim Kurayev got the brand new car
 
A close lieutenant of Vladimir Putin has gifted a new white Mercedes to a five year old boy - after he did 4,105 non-stop press-ups, Dailymail has reported.
 
Chechen strongman leader Ramzan Kadyrov gave Rakhim Kurayev the keys to the luxury car as a reward for the boy's 2 hours 25 minutes achievement.
 
Dubbed the 'Chechen Schwarzenegger' the lad - still at kindergarten - is due to repeat the exercise in a world record attempt.
 
'Let your father drive you around on this, you're worthy of riding a white Mercedes,' decreed the bearded ruler of oil-rich Chechnya.
 
It was unclear if taxpayers had paid for the £28,000 vehicle or if it came from Kadyrov's personal wealth.
 
Pictures showed Rakhim, Duba-Yurt village, posing in the driver's seat of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicle without license plates.
 
 
He boasted to Putin loyalist Kadyrov that he could do more than 5,000 press-ups at one go.

'The boy did the impossible,' said Kadyrov.
 
'We agreed to meet at a fitness centre and have a workout together.'
 
Kadyrov, who rules this Russian region with an iron fist, is widely criticised for alleged human rights abuses in Chechnya, ravaged by two wars since the fall of the USSR.
 
Of his gift of the car, he said: 'From now on his father will be able to drive the boy to workouts without hiring a taxi.'
 
The 4,105 non-stop press-ups beats the world record but was not registered in Russia because officials were not satisfied with the quality of the video recording of his feat.

"THERE IS HUNGER IN NIGERIA DON'T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU
Your Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari
As madact Ambassador on make A Difference Against Corruption Today, it has expanded my passion to speak.It saddens my heart that after 58 years all sectors of our social and economic lives has been plunged in failure.

Over the years,millions of graduates continue to wade through trying times,while youths with creative artistry,artisans and our young women have been denied the true values of nationhood,self esteem has been destroyed,many weep and sleep on a daily basis without a meal
Sir, the funds recovered from looters in the past fews years of your government is 739 billion Naira, Abacha recovered returned loot is 322,000,000 dollars equivalent of 112billion naira Totalling 851 billion naira.
Why was the Abacha returned loots shared? Who are the beneficiaries? Why wasn't the returned and recovered loots used to finance some of the basic social problems like electricity, repairing our refineries and creating jobs for our youths, build a world class hospital that can reduce the travelling expenses of Nigerians travelling abroad for medical treatment?
Sir, if our hospitals were well equipped, you won't be involved in foreign trips for medical check ups. When you eventual leave office, which hospital would be standard enough to offer you this services and to other Nigerians?
Who are the looters that returned the said amount ? How come they are not facing criminal charges or being jailed? How come politicians alleged with 232 billion naira cases of corruption are working for your re-election? Is it Only those that are with you, that are the presumed saints?
Your Excellency, our budgets for the last 3 years of your government 2016 (6.07 trillion),2017 (7.298trillion, )2018 (9.12 trillion)
Total 22.488 trillion naira, yet we do not have access to ordinary clean water, with escalated hunger in the land.
In 2015, Nigerian was ranked 3rd among the poorest nations index but today in 2018, Nigeria is now ranked number number 1 people living in poverty in world overtaking India .That is why Nigerians are complaining."
