If elected as Nigeria’s president in the forthcoming presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has promised to work towards handing over power to the younger generation.
Atiku made the promise while speaking at a rally in Calabar, Cross River state, on Friday, February 8, Daily Trust reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the former vice president stated that he would be the last aged president in the country.
According to Atiku, time has come for all to work towards handing over power to a new set of rulers.
He said: “When I win the presidential election, I will be a transitional president.”
He added: “We will actualise Ayade’s key projects such as the deep seaport, the super highway, etc to create massive jobs for people of the state.”
Recall that Legit.ng previously reported that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar described himself as the bridge between Nigeria’s young and old generations.
The candidate stated this is response to a suggestion by the moderator of the January 30 town hall meeting, Kadaria Ahmed, that his age could constitute a hindrance to his performance.
Atiku, who is 72-years-old, said he had gained experience to be able to relate with Nigerians of all age groups, as a result of his performance as a public official in the past.
