Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the previous presidential election, has declared that he has no intentions of retiring from politics.
This statement comes in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision affirming the election victory of President Bola Tinubu.
During an international press conference held at the party’s Secretariat in Abuja, Atiku emphasized his commitment to working alongside relevant stakeholders, particularly the younger generation, to help Nigeria reach its full potential.
Contrary to speculations that Atiku might step back from active political participation following a series of unsuccessful presidential bids, he unequivocally stated that he is here to stay.
He asserted, “If you think I’m going to go away, forget about it. For as long as I breathe, I will continue to work for Nigerians to reach their potential.”
Atiku also criticized the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), accusing the commission of compromising the integrity of the last election. He maintained that Tinubu was not eligible to participate in the poll.
Furthermore, Atiku contended that INEC displayed bias while defending the outcome of the February 25 election in both the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal and the Supreme Court.
