Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, and PDP People’s Democratic Party candidate in Nigeria’s last presidential elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakr was a political figure in Nigeria. Atiku contested President Muhammadu Buhari by the People’s Democratic Party PDP in the last Presidential polls but lost the elections.
President Muhammadu Buhari won the elections and Alhaji Atiku Abubakr challenged the Tribunal with his victory, but President Muhammadu Buhari was finally announced as the real electoral winner. It is necessary to remember that Atiku Abubakr dumped APC and defected to his former Party, the PDP, at the All Progressive Congress.
Atiku and his people defected to the PDP Democratic People’s Party. Among other PDP Democratic Party candidates who defeated together with Atiku are Bukola Saraki, former President of the Senate, Rabiu Kwankaso who was former Governor of the State of Kano, Aminu Tambuwal, Sokoto State Governor and some others.
Atiku became presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party PDP after the Primary Election, and of Peter Obi, who was chosen as his running mate by the former governor of the Anambra State. Atiku almost won the 2019 Presidential election, but he could not win the election because of certain circumstances surrounding the election.
Atiku’s country personality took more votes to him in the last presidential polls. In addition to the popularity of the party in the country, Atiku Personality also opened the way for him in the last presidential polls to get a Presidential ticket. Although Atiku has lost the election, in the future elections he will not have any problems.
If this person is chosen as his running mate, Atiku will fulfil his presidential ambition
If Governor Nysome Woke of the State of Rivers is chosen as its running mate, 2023 will be an easy ride for Alhaji Atiku Abubakr. In 2023 presidential polls, Atiku Abubakr and Wike will be marketable candidates. It is worth recalling that Alhaji Atiku Abubakr chose his fellow candidate from the South-East during the last presidential elections.
Nothing is bad if his running mate could be chosen this time from the south. Governor Wike was an active South South South Governor who deserves a ticket. Governor Wike was faithful to his party from the moment he elected Rivers State Governor. A vote for Atiku with Governor Wike is not a missed vote as his running mate.
The PDP should not be mistaken in selecting the wrong candidate for presidential elections before 2023. Governor Wike will do well with his Principal if the Privileges are granted, and progress will be made in the party.
