2023: Atiku officially declares for presidency, promises more resources, powers to federating units

As the 2023 general election approaches, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP2019 )’s Presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has expressed his desire to run for president in the 2023 elections.

The Waziri Adamawa stated this while declaring his intention at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja on Wednesday, describing the 2023 election as a referendum to decide whether Nigerians want greatness or continuous destruction, saying there are two paths to choose from: the path of unity and progress or the path of division and backwardness.

He said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) wishes to split the country along political, ethnic, and religious lines so that people will forget to blame them for growing prices.

He continued ” under my leadership, we will ensure absolute security because that is the number one condition for economic prosperity. We will provide access to mechanized farming systems and develop the agricultural value chain. We must diversify our foreign exchange sources through exports of processed agricultural products.

“When APC came into power, Nigeria’s debt was N12 trillion, and now they increased it to N32 trillion. They still want to borrow more. Under my leadership, we will reduce government borrowing. Too much borrowing comes at the detriment of future growth.
