Atiku Abubakar has revealed that he jogs more than a mile everyday, and urged Nigerians to vote for him on the basis of his ability to deliver and not as a result of anything else.

2019 presidential hopeful, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday, revealed that he wants Nigerians to vote for him, not because he can walk but because he can work.
Atiku said this via his verified Twitter handle, @atiku, when he shared a photo of himself on a treadmill.
He tweeted: “I regularly jog more than a mile & exercise, but it will be pedestrian of me to ask Nigerians to vote for me because of that. I want my party – the PDP, and Nigerians, to vote for me because I WORK not because I WALK. I will work to create jobs. I won’t walk to create an illusion.”
The social media was awash on Monday after the president's handlers and the ruling party, All Progressives Congress, sang praises on President Muhammadu Buhari who walked 800 metres from the mosque to his house in Daura as proof that he was fit for the 2019 election.
