2023: Atiku Says Northerners Don’t Need Igbo, Yoruba Presidential Candidates

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday said those from the North don’t need candidates from the South during the 2023 elections.

Atiku spoke while responding to a question posed to him by the Spokesperson of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, during an Interactive Session With Arewa Joint Committee held on Saturday in Kaduna State.

The former Vice President said Northerners need to vote for him rather than a Yoruba or Igbo candidate because he’s a Pan-Nigerian with a Northern extraction.

When Baba-Ahmed asked Atiku why Northerners should vote for him, the PDP presidential candidate replied, “What the average Northerner needs is somebody who’s from the North and also understands that part of the country and has been able to build bridges across the country.

“This is what the Northerner needs. It doesn’t need a Yoruba or Igbo candidate. I stand before you as a Pan-Nigerian of Northern origin.”
