2023: I Am The Stepping Stone To Igbo Presidency – Atiku Declares
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar on Thursday urged the people of the southeast region to vote for him to pave way for the Igbo presidency.
The former Vice President described himself as the stepping stone to the Igbo presidency.
Naija News reports he made the submission in Anambra State while addressing supporters during his party’s presidential campaign in the state.
Atiku boasted that he has shown his support for the Igbo presidency by running with an Igbo man on three occasions while seeking the country’s presidency.
He told the people of Anambra that a vote for the Atiku/Okowa ticket in 2023 is a faster route to realizing the dream of an Igbo presidency.
He said: “The people of Anambra State, I am sure, you know that I am going to be the stepping stone to an Igbo president in this country.
“I have shown it by my action because this is the third time I am running with an Igbo man.
“If you really want to produce the president then vote Atiku/okowa ticket.
“So the people of Anambra State, believe me we are not going to forget you, we are going to reward you handsomely.”
What I Discussed With Soludo
Atiku during the campaign also revealed that the Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo made some requests from him during their closed-door meeting when he welcomed him and his team to the state.
He revealed that the Governor asked him to look at the Onitsha port, road construction, and erosion control in the state if he emerges the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
According to him, Soludo said, “‘Make sure you help control our erosion because Anambra State is the erosion headquarters of the world.
‘Erosions are destroying our farmlands, destroying our houses is destroying everything we have.”
In response, he promised to do what the Governor requested.
“That’s a very very gigantic project. And I promised him I’m just going to do that,” Atiku said he promised.
