Just In: Atiku Abubakar Formally Declares 2023 Presidential Bid


Wait! Before You Vote Atiku - Musa Mohammed

Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar has formally declared his intention to run for the 2023 presidency.

The former vice-president declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election at the International Conference Centre in Abuja on Wednesday.

The presidential hopeful said;

The most fundamental right of every Nigerian is the right to life. But the APC has failed to protect the life of her citizens… under my Presidency I will not tolerate insecurity. They said we should go back to farms. How can Nigerians return to the farms when you have not secured the farms?

When the APC came in 2015, they met a debt profile of N12tn. But now we have more than N32tn in debt. Under my watch, I will reduce borrowing.

He added that his administration would focus on five priority areas: Unity, security, economy, education and devolving more powers to the federating units.

Atiku expressed;

Nigeria is in dire need of visionary leadership. Presently Nigeria is a sinking ship that must be urgently rescued. That is why I am announcing my candidacy for the President. I offer myself to rescue the ship. Under my captainship, this ship will sail to brighter days by the grace of God. This is a journey I will take with all Nigerians.

He added;

Under my Presidency I will focus on five key areas; unity, security, economy, education and devolving more powers to the federating units. I am the unifier that is coming to bind the broken union. Under my Presidency there will be a new Nigerian where everybody has an equal voice and is heard.

Atiku’s declaration comes just seven days to the two-week deadline given to the PDP zoning committee to make recommendations for the zoning of various elective positions before the elections.
