Adamu Atiku-Abubakar, the son of former Vice President and the 2019 PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has revealed his father will contest the presidency again in 2023 by which time he’ll be 76. According to Adamu, he doesn’t see anything wrong with Atiku contesting again in 2023 as his father has proven to be an astute politician for four decades.
Adamu who is the Commissioner for Works and Energy in Adamawa State made the revelation while talking about his ministry’s accomplishments under the administration of Governor Ahmadu Finitiri during the last one year.
According to Adamu his late entry into politics was as a result of his father’s advice that in order to have knowledge for public service he needed to gain a lot of experience in the private sector.
He said, “Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with my father contesting for the presidency. In 2023, my father will be aspiring to the number one office in the land because he has been an astute, strategic, master politician for almost four decades.”
“I am basically here to serve my people; if I am called by the people back home to run for the Senate, I don’t see anything wrong with that.”
