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.
