In its fourth attempt since 2011, former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has again rolled up his sleeve to run for the presidency, with days already counting to 2023.
In a statement made available by his Media Office in Abuja, it said after several months of consultations with stakeholders across the country and in the diaspora, as well as all organs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s former Vice President and presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, will officially declare his intent to run for the 2023 presidential election on Wednesday, 23.
The event which will have in attendance Atiku Abubakar’s friends, associates, political leaders, party faithful and supporters will take place at the International Conference Center, Abuja at 11 am.
