Titi Abubakar, the wife of Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, says her husband will choose an older person as the main Minister and a younger person as the Minister of State.
Naija News reports that Mrs Abubakar made this comment on Sunday, February 10, at a Town Hall meeting organized by Eko4Atiku movement which held in Obalende, Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.
At the Town Hall meeting, Mrs Abubakar said her husband will do this because he is determined to hand over the mantle of leadership to the younger generation.
Her words: “Atiku has promised the youths forty per cent. In his cabinet, he is going to choose an older person to be the main Minister and a younger person to be the State Minister so that the younger one will be learning from the older one because we are going to hand over the mantle of leadership to the younger generation,” she said.
Dignitaries present at the event included PDP Eti-Osa House of Reps candidate, Omotesho Tony Bakare, convener of Eko4Atiku movement, Adewale Raji, one of the wives of David Mark, former Nigeria’s Senate President among others.
Meanwhile, Naija News reports that Nigeria’s Presidential election is slated for February 16 with Atiku Abubakar hoping to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari who is seeking a second term in office on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party.
