“I’ll keep contesting as long as I am alive and healthy” – Atiku speaks on presidential bid

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has reiterated his commitment to vie for the presidency in Nigeria, affirming that he will continue his pursuit as long as his health remains robust. 

In an interview with the Voice of America’s Hausa service in Abuja, Atiku said his enduring determination to contest the nation’s highest office is unshaken.

Atiku, who previously contested as the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in both the 2019 and 2023 elections, said he remains undeterred in realizing his ambition.

“Of course, I will keep contesting again and again as long as I am alive and healthy.

“Even the former US President Abraham Lincoln contested seven times before finally winning.

“However, given the current state of the PDP, it is clear that a single-handed effort will not suffice to win the election. Strong support and collaboration with other parties are required,” Atiku said.
