‘Unlike others, Atiku has only presidential ambition’

Atiku Abubakar

The Vice Chairman, Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ajagbe Adejumo says Atiku Abubakar is the only presidential aspirant in the party who is not scheming for option B in case his aspiration fails.

Adejumo, in a statement made available to Daily Trust in Lagos, stated that whereas other presidential aspirants are purchasing two forms for their respective aspirations, Atiku is the only one who has bought just the presidential aspiration form.


“We wish to declare that the former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar is the only candidate that has full and total commitment to the Peoples Democratic Party and the Presidential race.

“Upon investigation, it has been discovered that other aspirants may not be fully committed to the Peoples Democratic Party and the Presidential election.


“How do we know? Well, evidence has come to light that others who have declared their intention to contest for the office of the President of Nigeria under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party have bought and submitted their PDP Presidential nomination forms.

“However, they have not stopped there. They have also secretly bought and submitted either a gubernatorial declaration of interest form or a senatorial declaration of interest form in addition to their Presidential declaration form.

“This is a defeatist mentality. They have their plan B because they are not sure of their plan A. Atiku Abubakar is about the only candidate who has bought and submitted his PDP Presidential nomination form and no other form,” the statement read.
