2023: Atiku will run for president again, says son

Adamu, son of former Vice-President  Atiku Abubakar, has revealed his father would contest the presidency again in 2023.

Atiku was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the 2019 presidential elections where the opposition party lost to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

But speaking on the achievements of his ministry as the Commissioner for Works and Energy in Adamawa State as the administration of Governor Ahmadu Finitiri, of the Peoples Democratic Party clocked one year, Adamu said his father hopes to contest the country’s highest political office in 2023.

His words: “Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with my father contesting for the presidency. In 2023, my father will be aspiring to the number one office in the land because he has been an astute, strategic,  master politician for almost four decades.”

Atiku’s son went on to highlight the impact of the Finitiri-led administration on the state since he came into power, noting his government had defied the odds to deliver good governance to residents of the state.

Adamu added that his foray into the political scene was based on his father’s advice.

“I am basically here to serve my people; if I am called by the people back home to run for the Senate,  I don’t see anything wrong with that,” he added.
