The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has revealed his intentions, if perchance he loses the upcoming 2023 General Elections, slated for February 25th.
Atiku made this known today in an interview with BBC pidgin, where he said: “I am not the first loser neither am I going to be the last.”
Speaking on why he wanted to be Nigerian president, he said: “First of all, let me start from a private perspective, I have many children I brought them up well and sent them to the best schools both within Nigeria and outside as I normally tell them I have lived my life and If I should bring them all back home; what kind of a country am I going to leave for them and this thinking that I have is a thinking that every parent in this country, what kind of a country am I going to leave for my kids; is it a better country or not?
“This is one of the reasons behind my perseverance to run for the office of this country not only for my kids but for the future generation of this country; everybody’s kids.”
He also stated that he’ll take it in good fate if he lost the presidential election slated for February 25th.
“That is my fate, I take it in very good faith I am not the first loser neither am I going to be the last,” he said.
“I don’t go for any medical treatment abroad other than normal medical checkups the only medical problem I have was if you recall in 2006 in an election year like this I tripped from a staircase and injured my knee and I went to Germany for treatment I didn’t have any fracture; I just have what they call Tendon Rupture and the Tendon was brought back in, so that’s the only sickness I have and if electoral authorities say we should produce our medical reports, I am ready to produce my medical reports.”
“Whatever medical attention I require is available in the country I will avail myself of that facility but if it is not available; what do you want me to do? To sit down and die?”
