I Will Keep Contesting – Atiku

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential contender for 2023, has vowed to run for president as long as he is healthy.

Atiku said this during an interview with the Voice of America’s Hausa program in Abuja. When asked if he would contest again, Atiku said, “Of course, 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,” he said.

Atiku will be 81 years old by the next presidential election, scheduled for 2027. Recall that the former Vice President has run for president six times. He ran in 2007 and 2019, and in 2023.

He expressed comfort in the fact that former US President Abraham Lincoln did not win the presidential election the first time around.

Speaking on the PDP’s crisis, Atiku stated that in order to win the presidential election in 2027, the party must unite and form partnerships with other political groupings.

Meanwhile, there have been reports that Atiku and other politician were planning a partnership with other political parties. Last week, Atiku met with the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

The former vice president said, “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 added.
