The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is expected to honour a gathering in Lagos on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, which will have hundreds of editors present.
Naija News reports that the former Vice President is expected to at the event scheduled to hold at the Protea Hotel by Marriot Ikeja Select on Plot 2 Assibifi Road, Off Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja, present his plans for Nigerians to over 100 editors who will be present starting from 9:00 am.
The Editors’ Forum is part of the Nigerian Guild of Editors’ efforts to help deepen democracy by engaging candidates in the electoral process to explain their manifestoes and programmes to Nigerians.
Meanwhile, a former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, declared earlier that Atiku is the cleanest amongst his counterparts running for the 2023 presidential race.
Naija News reports that Omokri while comparing Atiku to the presidential candidates of the two contending parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Labour Party (LP), described Atiku as clean in terms of a corruption scandal.
The former presidential aide in a post on the micro-blogging platform Twitter said both Bola Tinubu and Peter Obi had faced corruption scandals at different times.
His reaction follows a recent document that surfaced on social media about Tinubu’s forfeiture of $460,000 by an Illinois court in the US.
