Atiku to declare 2015 presidential bid September 24

AtikuFormer Vice President Atiku Abubakar will on Wednesday, September 24, publicly declare his interest in contesting for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 presidential election.

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). Borishade 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.
