The former vice president of Nigeria and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has vowed not to let cabals overtake his government if elected into power in the February 23 election.
Daily Trust reports that Atiku made this statement while interacting with stakeholders from the 23 local government areas of Kaduna state, at the Trade Fair complex.
The PDP presidential candidate who promised to sell the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), also claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in control of his government and charged him to relinquish his power as the minister of petroleum.
He said: “If I get elected as president, 40 per cent of my cabinet will be youth and education will be provided for all regardless of any affiliation, and my government will not be run by cabals."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Social Democratic Party (SDP) called on its members and other electorate to vote en masse on Saturday, February 23, for its adopted presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A factional chairman of the party, Chief Supo Shonibare, made the call at a news briefing after the faction’s National Working Committee meeting on Wednesday, in Abuja.

Shonibare urged the electorate across the country not to be deterred by the postponement of the election but to come out to vote for Abubakar, who would tackle “poverty, unemployment and undemocratic tenets.’’
He said that the adoption of Abubakar by the SDP as its candidate was in consonance with the agreement reached among the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) members, which SDP was part of.
