Atiku to declare 2015 presidential bid September 24
The former Vice President, His Excellency Vice President Atiku Abubakar
(GCON), the Turaki Adamawa will contest for the ticket of the All
Progressives Congress (APC), in the 2015 presidential elections.
The former Vice President will be making the declaration on Wednesday,
September 24, 2014.
The campaign will be anchored by a veteran of successful presidential
contests and a former Minister, Professor Babalola Borishade.
Borishade is also a well-known political strategist who worked for the
victory of the late General Shehu Musa Yar'Adua and thereafter, late Chief
M. K. O. Abiola on the platform of the defunct Social Democratic Party,
SDP. Borisade also worked as the strategist for President Olusegun
Obasanjo in 1999 and 2003 elections, both of which were won resoundingly.
“This is not about me, it is about our young people. It is about
Nigerians. It is their future, not the past. It is about reforming
government, securing the people and reconciling the nation,” Atiku said.
Turaki is of the view that 2015 is special and a potential turning point
in Nigeria's history – that we need to seize the moment, to give every
Nigerian a chance to help redefine Nigeria as a place for them and their
children to prosper and feel safe. He says a change is needed now, and he
is ready to lead that change.
