I doesn’t Matter where Nigeria’s Next President comes from- Atiku

Former Nigerian Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has said it matters not which zone in the country produces the next president.

The Adamawa born politician who contested and lost the 2019 presidential elections to his fellow Fulani, Buhari, made this known after the 94th National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP.

Atiku Abubakar was Olusegun Obasanjo’s Deputy from 1999 till 2007.

Atiku insisted that what Nigerians care about is a competent leader who can lead them out of the menace the APC has left them in.

He said: “PDP has the right to determine how the party should be run and Nigerians have the right to determine how the country should be governed. The problem of Nigerians has never been where the President comes from.

“There is no such thing as a president from southern Nigeria or a president from northern Nigeria. There is only one — a president from Nigeria, for Nigeria and by Nigerians.

“Talking about inclusion, I would like to see a new national working committee of our party that has sizeable numbers of youths and women.

“The decision of NEC today will either see us PDP in the villa in 2023 or not. Since the inception, this party has faced serious challenges and has risen above sentiment to solve those challenges and move forward.”
