Atiku Abubakar visited the Edo State governor over his political ambition.
Ahead of the 2015 general election, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Wednesday consulted with leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo.
Mr. Atiku, who visited the state governor, Adams Oshiomhole, in his office in Benin said he was in the state as part of his nationwide consultation with the leadership of the party.
He said that the tour was in fulfillment of his promise to consult with relevant stakeholders across the country on his political ambition.
He commended the state government on its infrastructure development under the present administration and urged the governor to do more.
Responding, Mr. Oshiomhole said that he was excited about the intention of the meeting. He wished the former vice president well.
He urged him to ensure that his consultation would be to the benefit of the country and its citizens.
Mr. Atiku, though still a member of Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had voiced his frustration at being muzzled out of the party’s activities. He had been approached by the national leaders of the APC to join the opposition party, which controls Edo and 15 other states.
