Obasanjo Will Live To Witness The Emergence Of Atiku As Nigeria’s President In 2019

A political associate of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Abdullahi Sugar said he is praying for former President Olusegun Obasanjo to live long to witness the emergence of Atiku as Nigeria’s President in 2019.

Atiku’s associate who made this claim in an exclusive telephone interview with Daily Trust said Atiku would contest in 2019.

“We, Northerners must be wary of these antics. It has happened before and we should not allow it to happen again. He, Obasanjo, should allow the people’s will to prevail.

“Why is he plotting for Kwankwaso and El-Rufai when better politicians are on the ground? He should allow the people’s will to prevail and not his. Tell him that Nigerians are now more enlightened politically than in 2007,” he said.

The APC stalwart in Kano said former President Obasanjo was against the candidature of Atiku because of the role he (Atiku) played in frustrating his third term ambition.

“Obasanjo had on many occasions said Atiku will not in his lifetime become President. We are praying for him to live long so that he can witness the emergence of Atiku as President.

“Atiku is not looking for the Presidency from Obasanjo, but from Allah, who gives power to anybody He wishes, without the endorsement of people like Obasanjo,” he said.
