Former Vice President and PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has revealed that he was anointed president by the late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua in 1993.
This he said as his campaign train hit Katsina State, President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state. According to him, it is now time to fulfill that dream of the late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua.
Atiku Abubakar said, “I was introduced into politics by late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua of blessed memory and I grew up in politics in Katsina.
“Later, late Shehu anointed me as the presidential candidate in 1993.
“Today, it is time to fulfill the dream of late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua. Would you help Shehu achieve his unfulfilled dream?” Atiku said.
“The APC, three and half years ago, came here to promise you that they will restore the economy, improve security and unemployment, but they have failed.
“I am assuring you that if elected, we would restore the security, address the issue of unemployment and by the time that is done, we must have addressed hunger in the country.
“We would closely work with Lado (Katsina governorship candidate) to achieve this together in the state level,” Atiku stated.
