Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday, said that the desire to move Nigeria forward was the greatest factor motivating his desire to keep seeking to occupy the highest political office in Nigeria.

Abubakar, who spoke when he visited an elder statesman and Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, during his visit to Imo state in his ongoing nationwide presidential consultations, said that bad governance had taken Nigeria back.

The former VP, who came in company with his campaign organisation’s Director-General and a former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, and other members of his campaign team, said that he had the solution to the myriad of challenges confronting the country.

Atiku said, “Patriotism is the key thing. It is the thing propelling my presidential ambition. I want to move Nigeria forward. Patriotism is needed to move Nigeria forward.”

He said he was in the state to consult the leadership of the PDP in the state ahead of the party’s presidential primary.

Responding, Iwuanyanywu said “I will not retire from politics until Atiku becomes President. Atiku is the kind of president Nigeria needs. There is poverty in the land because of bad governance. The Igbo have been marginalised in this government, sadly, some Igbo people are still supporting Buhari.”

Similarly, Atiku accused the ruling All Progressives Congress of failing the aspirations of Nigerians.

Atiku stated this in Owerri, capital of Imo State,  while on a visit to the delegates and members of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.  (Punch)
