How I Stopped Obasanjo’s Third Term Bid — Atiku

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s Presidential Candidate has admitted that former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s attempt for a third term was thwarted by his strong bonds with National Assembly members while he served as the vice president of the country.

He claimed that the connection allowed him and some NASS members to stop Obasanjo’s plans for a third term, while he also expressed a desire to reconnect with the NASS candidates, if elected as the country’s next president.

The PDP presidential candidate made the comments on Sunday evening in Abuja at the Strategy Engagement Meeting with National Assembly Candidates for the 2023 Presidential Campaign Organization.

Ariku’s words: “During my tenure as vice-president, I developed a very intimate relationship with members of the National Assembly and it was that relationship that enabled us to stop the third-term or the life Presidency attempt by President Obasanjo.

“I really look forward to re-engaging you as you return to the National Assembly for your functions from the constitution, and to further deepen democracy development and progress of our nation.”

Lamenting the current security and economic situation, the former vice-president said, “Our nation has found itself in one of the most challenging times in the history of this country. Now, we are more divided than ever, because of the activities and the policies of the current APC government. Likewise our security situation has gone from bad to worse, and our economy is in shambles.”
