Adamu Atiku-Abubakar, son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has revealed that his father will contest the presidency again in 2023.
Atiku ran in 2019 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but lost to incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku’s son said this while presenting the scorecard of his ministry as the Commissioner for Works and Energy in Adamawa State as the administration of Governor Ahmadu Finitiri, of the PDP clocked one year.
“Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with my father contesting for the presidency.
He added that Fintiri’s administration had surpassed the expectations of many in the state who were surprised that given the tight liquidity constraints, Fintiri could still meet most of its campaign promises to the electorate.
He said his coming late into politics was as a result of the advice from his father urging him to spend more time in the private sector to gain enough experience, which would be crucial for him in public life.
“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.”
