Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar has made a detour on his desperate bid to clinch the 2023 Presidential ticket under the Peoples Democratic Party by saying that if the PDP zones its presidential candidacy to the South-East, he would withdraw his interest for the sake of fairness and equity.
He said that however, if PDP zones its Presidential ticket to the South, he will not withdraw because there is no fairness and equity.
Atiku challenged, “former president Goodluck Jonathan was President for 6 years. For fairness and equity, Wike should not contest, but he is contesting.
“Olusegun Obasanjo was President for 8 years. For fairness and equity, Fayose should not contest, but he is contesting.
“My region (North East) has not produced a president in this country, but I am ready to step down if PDP zones it to South East.
“If Wike and Fayose want fairness and equity, they should be fighting for PDP presidential ticket to be zoned to the South-East and not South” – Atiku Abubakar declared.
