Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has stated that if he emerges victorious in the February 25th polls, he will says he will ensure that an Igbo from either the South-East or South-South succeeds him.
“When I came to Enugu a few months ago for a town hall meeting, I told you that I am going to be the stepping stone to an Igbo president. And I mean that statement,” stated Mr Abubakar.
The former vice-president added, “Whether, from the South-East or South-South, I am going to make sure that an Igbo becomes president after me as president because the Igbo is a universal race. That’s why I chose an Igbo man from Delta as my running mate.”
Mr Abubakar disclosed this in his Enugu rally on Tuesday while urging Enugu residents to remain in the PDP to be in his government.
“As you can see, Nigeria is geared towards a PDP government. So, the next Federal Government is going to be formed by the PDP,” the APC presidential flag bearer added. “I appeal to Enugu people to make sure that you remain in the PDP so that you be in the mainstream and be part of that government.”
