Atiku Declares: Gets SW Endorsement!

Atiku Abubakar

Today Wednesday, September 24, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has formally declared his presidential ambition on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The former vice president’s declaration is coming against the backdrop of his endorsement by south-west caucus of the APC.

He made his formal declaration at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja. The activities that marked the declaration largely focused on youths to emphasise Atiku’s passion for the challenges facing young men and women in the country.

Youth economic empowerment is one of Atiku’s cardinal objectives because he regards them as the fulcrum around which the development and future of Nigeria revolves

On why he chose Shehu Musa Yar’Adua’s center, Atiku stated, "It is a great honour to begin this journey at the centre dedicated to the ideals Shehu Musa Yar'Adua lived and died for. Shehu Musa Yar'Adua was one of Nigeria's greatest democrats. He died fighting for democracy. He was also my mentor."
