Nigeria’s Former Vice President Atiku Will Run for President Again

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.

  1. More money for the boys and party chieftains. They will cheer you, drag you outside, then squeeze as much naira and dollars from you as possible; then disappoint on the election day.

    Buhari used to be a perennial contender for president, but the difference was that he wasn’t spending money, he always had couple of millions from ground zero hailing him as ‘Baba’, Atiku doesn’t have such, so he basically needs to purchase his own supporters at scale.

    Almost all the big names in APC and PDP want to be president in 2023, but give them power, they become confused again.

    Maybe we will have our own ‘Trump Moment’ in 2023, who knows…
