A presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday said he would not give up his bid to become the president of Nigeria.

Mr. Abubakar made this declaration in Dutse, Jigawa State, shortly before holding a 90 minutes closed-door consultation with Governor Sule Lamido.

He said he was determined to continue to vie for the office of President even if he loses the APC ticket for next year’s election. He, however, said his chance of winning his party’s primary on December 10 was bright.

The former vice president also said he was ready to support whoever emerges at the primary to ensure the person’s victory at the 2015 presidential election.

Mr. Abubakar earlier told journalists that he was in Dutse to interact with his party’s delegates ahead of the primaries.

He also criticised the invasion of the APC data office in Lagos by security operatives.

Mr. Abubakar is one of the five aspirants seeking the APC’s ticket for 2015. The others are former military head of state, Muhammadu Buhari; Governors Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano and Rocha Okorocha of Imo; as well as newspaper publisher, Sam Nda-Isiah.

    If he gets the APC by crooked means, he’ll lose very badly to the PDP. If by any miracle he wins, he’ll return to the PDP. Atiku is a political whore. If he loses the APC ticket, he’ll eventually return to the PDP to run again as a presidential aspirant.

    • SHariff

      Mr. Ejeuwa you are a lier,a mischieve maker an agent of PDP. Am assuring you that Atiku is in APC for good and for real change, l mean postive change. Let me also tell you that, God forbide, I even if he Atiku failed to make it to the primary, he won’t leave but rather joins whoever makes it and work to ensure APC win the 2015 election. So yhat is the Atiku you don’t know. So wait and see.

    I am not a fan of APC …… I hate APC with a passion and will do whatever I can to ensure that APC is promptly wiped out from the surface of the earth …….. because APC is nothing but pure evil ……. evil in its purest sense.

    All the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani Presidential Candidates of APC are completely useless and not fit to present themselves as candidates for election as toilet-keepers let alone Presidential Candidates for Nigeria’s Presidency.

    Here, I am referring to Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar, Rabiu Kwankwaso and disgraced and degraded A-minor Tambuwaal.

    However, I will not fail to draw the attention of Nigerians to an observation that speaks volumes about the potential “Robert Mugabe Mohammed Morsi” of Nigeria otherwise known as Buhari …… an extremely wicked old man.

    Alhaji Atiku Abubakar ….. the consensus candidate of the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani have been going round the country in a bid to win delegates

    • Lorgic

      Bros, since u hate APC so much, which one is your business with the activities of Mugabe morsi mohammed buhari. Pls focus on your master Eb-Ole jonathan, the love of your life and leave others to vote for who they feel can bring about a change of living standards for the masses.

    I am an evil genius. This is why nobody can still explain how I stole $12.7b between 1990-1992 from the oil sales windfall necessitated by the Gulf war. Now I am sick & no hospital can treat me in Nigeria bcos I stole the money that woul have built hospitals. What is my name?

    I am a governor and a thief. In fact, I and my fellow Govs will continue to steal until continent Nigerians have the courage to stone us to death. What is my name?

    I am an ex governor and a thief. In fact, I and my wife sleep on a bed that cost N50m while I reduced the salary of Teachers in the state in order to save cost. What is my name?

    (a) Imam Kwankawamaso (b) Judas Iscariot of Port Harcourt (c) Saint Fayemi (d) Pastor Uduagham

    I am an ex governor and a Pension thief. In fact, as it is now, I have cornered billions as pensions and monthly maintenance in millions. Many yrs ago, my personal account was home to some drug dealer’s money…and not long ago I threatened (as is usual of my Party) to ‘roast’ some Nigerians if they don’t vote my party. What is my name?

    I am a Presidential candidate and a former civil servant. Honestly I do not even know how I made my money. But all I know is that once I left public office I became a billionaire…yet my monthly salary was officially less than N100,000…besides I own a University and I am so patriotic like Nnamdi, so I named my University after a foreign country. What is my name?

  • Mr. Abdin

    Atiku Abubakar the political gladiator is here again a democrat who really believes in the proper democratization of Nigeria who has been contesting for the president of this country for the last 22 years. he has all the experience needed for the emancipation of this country. Yes the ticket of the APC is almost a done deal because of the proper political consultation that you have carried for the past couples of week. Carry on Turaki the man with the policy document that will bring an end to the present systemic quagmire facing our dear country Nigeria. A Nigeria for all is what we have been dreaming for.

  • Baba Jada

    Atiku is a true democrat who still believes in Nigeria, He has the experience and determination to develop this country further. His policy plans coupled with his experience and effort makes his the ideal APC presidential candidate. he isn’t tribal or sectional but uniting and accommodating of all. Your country needs you Atiku. #Nigeriaforall


    May the Baboons and Dogs soak in their own blood !!

  • the truth

    I wish atiku wins the apc primary.he has a great vision.apc please do the needful

    • Ayo Kellany

      Atiku can not win the primary. We can not replace a thief with another thief

  • tsunami1earthquake

    Then run as Independent, if that is possible.

    • Otile

      Why must a better candidate run as Independent while a coupist runs under a major party?
      Why must the wicked prosper while the just man languish in agony?
      Why must the insolent ones gather at APC party and mock us with their hypocritical mock?

      • tsunami1earthquake

        From indications it would appear APC has made up its mind to give the ticket to Buhari; and this is with a reason. Rig Buhari out and that rigger would be in trouble but rig Atiku out and nothing spectacular would happen.

  • Ette

    Atiku is suffering from corruption curses, and he can never be president of Nogeria. We are praying God to send all corrupt and wicked power drunk people like the present set of rogues out of leadership positions, and another corrupt person wants to be president. Never.

  • Zirem

    Atiku wants to be President and he makes that known in every possible way, that is what we want to see in a leader. A man who is sure of his capabilities as a leader. Not those who just sit in the comfort of their offices/homes and the tell Nigerians that they were called to run for the office of the president, By whom? A leader that will work his socks off for my vote, is kind leader i will vote for. Atiku 2015. #ANigeiraForAll
