I’ll Continue Obasanjo’s Legacy if I’m Elected – Atiku
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has stated that he would continue with the legacies of his former boss’Olusegun Obasanjo if elected.
Atiku was Obasanjo’s vice president from 1999- 2007.
Atiku, after winning the PDP presidential candidate stated that he could not have been what he was today without the counsel of his former boss.
He stated that it was time they worked together so that the country could be repositioned to where it was before during Obasanjo’s tenure.
He said, “This visit is an historic one for both of us and for this country, because, as I have said last Sunday, I paid tribute to him (Obasanjo) because I couldn’t have been what I am today without his wise counsel, without his picking me as his Vice-President for eight years and without the training I got from his tutelage and his leadership.
“I believe the time has come for all of us to work together, to unite and work together, so that this country can be repositioned on the path of unity, truth, and prosperity.
“Mr. President sir, today is one of the happiest days of my life. As I said a few moments ago up there, after your presidency, we have had three presidents in this country, the only President you have trained is I, and I said I am going to commit my presidency, if I become one, to the continuation of your own presidency and legacy.”
