Presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar, has assured Nigerians once more that his desire to be president is borne out of his need to see Nigeria grow and not his personal agenda.
The former Vice-president opened up on his desire for the country during a meeting with the party’s House of Representatives caucus in Abuja.
He stated that it was important Nigerians vote right in 2023 as it would lead to doom if the wrong leader was elected.
He, therefore, sought support from Nigerians in his 2023 aspirations.
According to him:
I recognise your immense influence on our great party and my respect for you is beyond measure. That is why I chose you to be among the first set of people that I will be meeting to personally declare my intention to contest for the President of Nigeria in 2023.
Therefore, I humbly present myself to you and seek your support to win our party’s Presidential ticket.
I have experience at the highest and lowest levels. As the Vice President of Nigeria, I ensured many progressive and national transformations and constitutional law. As a businessman, I have solved grassroots problems and provided jobs for thousands of people.
This is the last chance for this country to get it right. Any failure to elect the right leaders now means Nigeria is doomed. That is why this election is not for us or our personal interest, it is about salvaging the country and I want to seek your support to help me do that.
Nigerians are in desperate need of us and that is why we have to offer them the best. And this time more than ever before, we need a leader with versed experience who will fight for the people and a President who can bring this country together. I guarantee you that I have what it will take to be that kind of President. Therefore, I seek your support.
