November 25, 2022

Atiku, 76, ran unsuccessfully for president in 1993, 2007, 2011, 2015, and 2019.


Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has challenged his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) opponent, Atiku Abubakar, to abandon his presidential ambition following the latter's prior unsuccessful attempts to occupy the country's highest political office.
Atiku, 76, ran unsuccessfully for president in 1993, 2007, 2011, 2015, and 2019.
Tinubu addressed the Pere of Gbaramatu Kingdom, Oboro-Gbaraun II (Aketekpe, Agadagba), on his plans for the Gbaramatu community during the APC Presidential Candidate Meeting with Niger Delta Stakeholders in Gbaramatu, Delta State.
“You mentioned the issue of the deep sea port, the roads, the bridge, and the university, industrial park at Ogidigben. These are the things that came to your mind, Kabiyesi, and all of you here,” the former Lagos State governor said.
“Kabiyesi, Your Royal Highness, as I stand before you, there are few of us left running. One says he is Atiku. How many times has he been running? He’s always on the run and he’s tired. Tell him to go and sit down. Enough is enough.
“Kabiyesi, Your Royal Majesty, it was a joy to find one of my own blood being part of you from Badagry. So, what else do you need? You need honesty; you need the man who knows the road. That is me.”
He assured the Pere that his administration would consult with the monarch regularly.
“Our brothers here, we will embrace them for the development of the area, the community of Gbaramatu, and other associated communities – economic development, progress, jobs for our youth, a promised tomorrow that is certain.
“A renewed hope is here standing before you. And I promise, with the support of God on my team that you will live long, you will live with prosperity,” Tinubu said.
