2023: Judge me with my track record, policy document — Atiku




PRESIDENTIAL candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has urged Nigerians to judge him with his track record and his policy document.

Atiku, in a statement released on Sunday, said his major asset in the campaign for the 2023 presidential election is his performance in office when he served as vice president between 1999 and 2007.

“The second asset is the policy document that details the Work Plan of what we shall do to rescue Nigeria back to her glorious heights. Above all, my attributes as a unifier and bridge-builder will stand us in good stead in this era characterised by disunity and absence of inclusion,” he added.

The former vice president said his opponents will want to confuse the public with alternative facts as the campaign starts in full.

Atiku spoke a few days after former President Olusegun Obasanjo expressed regrets for choosing him as a running mate and eventual vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria between 1999 and 2007.

Atiku, however, urged his supporters to always remain focused.

“The urgency of the job to get Nigeria back on her feet as One People, with One Future and One Country cannot give us the luxury of playing to the gallery.

“My promise to you as we run this race together is that as your candidate, I shall ensure that we remain focused and disciplined. And I shall expect the same spirit of sportsmanship from you,” he said.

The former vice president said the 2023 election is neither about him nor any of the other candidates that he was contesting with or their agents.

“It is about the pathway that our dear country, Nigeria, must chart into a brighter and more prosperous future.”
