The Atiku Support Organisation (ASO), an independent support group campaigning for the emergence of the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has dissolved Its state structures to enable it to restructure in preparation for the elections.
This was contained in an unsigned statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, on Thursday.
The statement quoted the Director-General of the organization, Abubakar Kabir Babawo, as explaining that the structures were dissolved to enable the organisation to restructure ahead of the February, 25th election which is barely 40 days away.
Babawo said the national leadership of the organisation would ensure that members are fully committed to the objectives of the organisation.
He said, “After carrying out a holistic assessment of the Atiku Support Organisation, and in particular, the very crucial state leadership, the executive management of ASO has decided to dissolve all state structures and ASO liaison officers with immediate effect,” the director-general said.
“A sole administrator in each state will be appointed within five working days to manage its affairs while restructuring is underway. Liaison officers remain permanently dissolved.
“This decision was well thought out and executed to create room for the necessary restructuring of the organization, for better delivery ahead of the February elections.
“Atiku Support Organization, the foremost support group management body, and major youth mobilization vehicle, has consistently played an outstanding role in promoting the noble objectives of His Excellency and PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and it aims to continue to do so.
“To safeguard and promote its mandate, it will continue to do all that is necessary in ensuring its members remain fully committed to its objectives.
“All state chapters and their coordinators and deputies, in particular, will be given priority to return back to their positions based on the following criteria; loyalty, honesty, and commitment, track record of competence, leadership skills and capacity.“
He also said, “Let me also affirm that all ward, local government, and zonal structures remain valid. Where members have been found to meet the criteria, they may be re-appointed, while suitable replacements will be made where required.”
Babawo expressed gratitude to members for their sacrifices over time, he also pleaded with them to continue to work for the success of the candidate noting that their work was not done until Atiku wins the election.
