Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Monday congratulated reverred politician Bola Tinubu, saying they have both come a long way in promoting democracy.

Atiku stated this in a Twitter thread, though he was not part of the colloquium organised in honour of Tinubu on his 69th birthday.

He said: “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu @AsiwajuTinubu and I have come a long way in the common mission to restore and promote democracy in Nigeria.

“On this special occasion of your birthday, I pray to the Almighty Allah to grant you long life and more vigour to keep the march on in the quest for good governance and a better life for our people. Congratulations, dear friend and brother.”

Atiku, who was the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2019, has already indicated interest to recontest in 2023 when President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure expires.

Tinubu is also gunning for the Presidency and has begun to canvass support especially among northerners.
