live Facebook event has been planned for the commencement of Atiku Abubakar’s 2019 presidential campaign and the formal unveiling of a policy document that contains what he describes as his vision for a prosperous Nigeria.

Nigerians would now get a chance to see the entire document when it is unveiled on Facebook and Twitter at 12:00 p.m. today, which is only a few minutes away. The handles are: Facebook.com/Atiku.org and Twitter.com/Atiku.
Mr Abubakar said the document would be uploaded on his campaign website, Atiku.org, shortly after the live broadcast, and Nigerians home and away are encouraged to download and review its components.
