Presidency 2019: Atiku Abubakar Finally Declares Interest

Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president in Nigeria, has reportedly declared his intention to run for the 2019 presidential election.

Vanguard reports that a video showing the former vice president was obtained late Thursday, November 2 by journalists in Abuja from a source.

In the said video, Atiku reportedly said: “I am Atiku Abubakar, the poor boy from Jada, Adamawa state. I am a true democrat, a believer in the rule of law and a fighter for justice and equity.

“I believe in this country. If we work together under a focused and visionary leadership, we will make this country a stable and prosperous nation.

“I have the vision, the courage, the experience to lead this country. It is time to give back. I am ready to serve.”

The report said the video had pictorial illustrations including ‘Atiku…Nation on a rescue mission, Proudly Atikunation, we walk together; Nigeria of our dream, think Atiku; Atikunation 2019, if not Atiku then who?’

As at the time of this report, we could not independently verify the claim. Attempts to reach Paul Ibe, his aide, was unsuccessful.
