Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar is set to contest the 2015 presidential elections.
Atiku will reportedly make a public declaration to this effect on Wednesday, September 24, 2014.
This was disclosed by his Media Adviser, Mallam Garba Shehu in a statement released today, Friday, September 5, 2014.
“The Turakin Adamawa will contest for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress, in the 2015 presidential elections.
“The former Vice President will be making the declaration on Wednesday, September 24.”
According to Punch, the former VP was quoted as saying:
“This is not about me, it is about our young people. It is about Nigerians. It is their future, not the past. It is about reforming government, securing the people and reconciling the nation,”
Atiku contested the 2007 presidential elections on the platform of the now defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) but lost to late former President Umaru Yar’adua of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
