2027: I’ll keep contesting for presidency – Atiku

2027: I’ll keep contesting for presidency – Atiku

The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, has vowed to keep contesting for the presidency as long as he’s healthy.

He made this known during an interview on the Hausa service of the Voice of America, VOA in Abuja, noting that for as long as he is alive, he won’t stop.

Atiku said he is consoled by the fact that former President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln did not win the election the first time he contested.

The former vice president also spoke about the crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), noting that the party needs to be united and forge alliances with other political groups to win the presidential election in 2027.

Atiku said in part: “I will keep contesting again and again as long as I am alive and healthy. Even the former US President Abraham Lincoln contested seven times before finally winning.

“However, given the current state of the PDP, it is clear that a single-handed effort will not suffice to win the election. Strong support and collaboration with other parties are required.”

This is coming on the heels of him meeting his counterpart from the Labour Party, Peter Obi, which stirred speculation of a possible merger or a coalition.

“This is to anybody that thinks there is going to be a misunderstanding between me and Obi, let me assure you that not even a small issue is going to happen between us.

“Also, we are going to be behind anybody that will be chosen to represent us in the forthcoming elections,” he said.
