I'm Sentimentally And Emotionally Attached To Women - Atiku

Atiku Abubakar

While speaking during an interactive session with PDP women leaders on Thursday, Atiku Abubakar, disclosed that he he is not talking politics when he says he has a soft spot for women.

According to TheCable, the PDP presidential candidate who revealed that he has regards for women, and attributed it to the upbringing his mother gave to him, said his mother made him who he has become, and this in turn led to him being “sentimentally and emotionally attached to womanhood”.

The former vice-president said, “Honestly, if you want to fight poverty in power, empower women. I can tell you why I believe this is so.

“When my mother separated from my father, I was a toddler. My mother took me back to my grandmother and got remarried. So, my grandmother was the one who brought me up until I went to school.

“From there, when she died, my mother took me over and it was my my mother that brought me up to be what I am today. So, I am not talking politics, I am sentimentally and emotionally attached to womanhood.”

Atiku who had earlier said that 40 percent of his cabinet will be made up of women and youths if he is elected in 2019, told the women to hold him accountable, while promising them a strong representation in his cabinet.

He explained that during his reign as vice president, he initiated establishment of a micro finance bank with the interest of women in mind, through which 45,000 people have been lifted out of poverty in his state.

“In terms of quantity and quality women will play a lead role in our administration. PDP has never from day 1, not try to advance or protect the interest of women. That is why, our first interactive session is with women. In this transition, this is the first interactive session we are having with any group.

“I stand before you here today and I want you to hold me accountable. I will commit to a strong representation of women in our PDP government. And also recall that when I was the vice president, I demonstrated this belief. I brought some of the brightest women into our government. Therefore, gender should not be a barrier.

“For those of you who might have come from the same state with me, some years ago, I decided to set up a micro finance bank and I brought management experts from Bangladesh, the first country that manages micro finance, and I gave instructions that made sure that 80% of your loans go to women.

“And today, that bank is one of the best micro fiance banks in the country and we have move out more than 45,000 people out of poverty in my area.”

Tributes to the Only Love I Truly Had!


Putting this out has been one of the toughest decisions I have had to make in a recent time. I know many may have different reactions, it obvious I won’t care.

Tomorrow, you will traditionally be married to the man you have preferred chosen and accepted for a life union, and on Saturday, it will be sealed before God and men.

Let me first of all congratulate you on this next level of your life. Kindly expect my absence as I won’t be attending any of both events. Not that I have any bad feelings about your decision, I don’t think I am emotionally strong to behold “the only woman I could say I truly loved” officially given out to another man.

I wish I can, but just understand I can’t.

I can still remember when you first broke this news over a phone call, it was all like a joke. I laughed over it but you insisted you were serious. Well, tomorrow it will be a reality that I wish it never were.

We met on 2go in 2011. I can remember how your Status draw my attention to your account. I started hunting you day and night online, as reserved as you were, you hardly came online not respond to me, not until one night after blazing you for ignoring me, I woke up in the morning to see your apologies which came with your phone number. The next morning witnessed the beginning of a friendship that last more than 6 years even in the face of our many differences and clashes.

It took you more than 2 years before you voluntarily allowed me to see your face. (You just pitied me… Lol) You were beautiful, reserved and sensible. I just knew you were a friend for a keep.


I was in my level 300 in the University when we met, you were just fresh out of Secondary school seeking Admission into the Higher Institution. This was the major source of insecurity and concern we had to face. You never believed I was for real, and for the long years we spent together, you never really believed I truly loved you because you felt I was in a particular societal class you weren’t fit for. My social media engagements, the imaginary “fame and Uyo popularity” was also a regular concern. I tried my best to prove it, I didn’t seems to succeed.

No matter how we both tried to adjust, I was still me and you were you the “reserved, private and unsocial” person. Our incompatibilities were just too clear. We kept believing we could work out fine someday but this has proven we were never meant to be.

I had spent time reflecting on the many crazy things I have done because of you. I wish you had at least believed me the much I did loved you.

Before we met in 2013, I had travelled from my NYSC base to Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic on hearing that it was your matriculation day. You didn’t inform nor invite me, I just came believing I could run into you. That was crazy, let me save the details of what happened that day cos it was a big craziness.

After crying for the lost of my first love, no other lady has made me cry but you. You are the only one that will make me angry and I will still come back to apologize. The looks in your eyes alone were strong messages, it could make me comport and behave in the mist of my craziness.

You had so much hold on me like jazz. Those who knew us wondered what it were. But I know it was love indeed.

I couldn’t ask for a better friend than you if I have another opportunity. We are leaving each other better than we met in 2011. Aside from my Mum, you were always my first point of call in critical situations. Your sense of reasoning, counsels, peace loving dispositions and godly personality has kept me from load of problems in this city. I can’t forget your consistent advise “Ufan, let it go, better things are ahead of you”, “Is it worth your stress, life or security?” and your “What ifB” that will leave me giving a second thought to my actions.

If am blessed today by the prayers of two people, it’s my parents prayers and yours. Thanks for believing in me and pushing me out to go achieve my dreams. Thanks for standing by me in my most darkest moments.00xk

Thanks for always remembering me in your prayers. Thanks for drawing me closer to God. Which man won’t fight to have a rare treasure as you?

It was a long year of knowing each other. I wasn’t a perfect man, you had your own differences. We had ernestly tried to make it work but it never stayed smooth for too long. We are parting today not because we have stopped loving each other but because it wasn’t within God’s will for us. Maybe it’s a time for a deeper reflection for me.

I hoped and wished our beautiful love story would be told by us someday but God knows better. I’m not hurt, because we played very essential roles in the lives of each other and we just had to face the reality. I am a strong believer that it is not all friendship or relationship that must lead to marriage. Ours wasn’t meant to be, but we had the best of friendship and I will treasure such memories for my life time.

I love you still and wish you the best of martial bliss, fruitfulness and peace.

I still wish I can be there to witness it, but I can’t. I hope you really understand.

Thanks for being a friend indeed.

I will forever miss you and I doubt any women can take these memories of you away.

Happy married life Ufan mmi

You are a good woman, and he is just a lucky man

Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics Begin Indefinite Nationwide Strike

ASUP strike

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) Wednesday began an indefinite strike over non-implementation of the 2009 and 2017 agreement reached with the union by the federal government.

The polytechnic lecturers have joined their university colleagues who have been on strike since November 4.

The National President of ASUP, Usman Dutse, said the federal government had invited the union for dialogue on December 17 but the strike would continue till then.

Prior to the strike, the union had on October 2 issued a 21-day ultimatum to the government before it extended it to November. But even then, it did not commence the strike.

But Dutse said the strike had commenced, adding that there is total compliance by all chapters.

“We have zonal coordinators and a monitoring team, zone by zone, all over the country. Already from the report we are getting, we are satisfied with the level of compliance from all our zones but we are reviewing the day’s activity in a meeting now,” he said.

Meanwhile, the News Agency of Nigeria reported that students were seen writing their 2017/2018 second semester examination at the Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), Lagos.

But none of the striking lecturers was seen in all the examination halls monitored.

At the Lagos State Polytechnic, an official, Salami Olugbenga, said they could not join the strike because there was no organ of the union in the polytechnic since December 2017.

Dutse said the government has failed to implement and fulfill agreements it reached with the union as contained in the memorandum of understanding signed.

The union went on strike over non-implementation of the NEEDS Assessment report of 2014, non-payment of salaries in state-owned institutions, non-payment of allowances, and the victimisation of union members, among others.

ASUP went on strike in November 2017, but when the federal government reached an agreement to implement the recommendations of the 2014 NEEDS assessment, the strike was suspended 15 days after.

The agreement particularly highlighted the need for increased funding of polytechnics.
