Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar will take another shot for the presidency in the 2027 general elections, the spokesperson for the Presidential Campaign Organisation of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023, Mr. Daniel Bwala has revealed.
Maritime Bits checks showed that Atiku Abubakar who was the number two citizen during the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo has previously contested the presidential elections in Nigeria six times. These are the presidential elections in 1993, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019 and 2023.
Bwalla who is a lawyer and erstwhile member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) before he defected to PDP stated this on a television programme monitored by our correspondent in Lagos.
According to him, Atiku irrespective of facing what he called “previous setbacks” in his quest for Nigeria’s top position is resolute in his decision to “surely contest” again in the upcoming general elections.
His words: “Sure, he (Atiku) would run. He has the capacity. He has the wisdom. He has the knowledge. He has the energy. And he is a president we never had. Because to be honest with you, if any politician understands the private sector very well, it is Atiku Abubakar and our economy can only come alive if there is a private sector-led economy.”
