Nigeria’s former Vice President Atiku Abubakar will contest the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria. His son, a commissioner in Adamawa State, has said. This is not surprising if you have been following Atiku’s recent writings. He is positioning himself as a thought-leader. If PDP zones presidency to the northern part of the country again, Atiku has a chance.
The son of Nigeria’s former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Adamu Abubakar, has said his father plans to contest the 2023 presidential election.
“Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with my father contesting for the presidency. In 2023, my father will be aspiring to the number one office in the land because he has been an astute, strategic, master politician for almost four decades,” Mr Abubakar who currently serves as commissioner for works and energy in Adamawa State was quoted saying by the Punch.
He made this known while marking the one-year performance of his ministry under the leadership of Governor Ahmadu Finitiri of Adamawa state.
