Despite his well known, longstanding ambition to be president of Nigeria, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that he is yet to make up his mind on whether to vie for the top job again in 2019.
His comments will be hard to believe as all his recent actions including his speeches and the recent defection to the PDP show signs of a man running for the Presidency.
“For now I have not made up my mind. When I decide, I will let the world know,” Atiku said on a VOA Hausa program this week.
However, Atiku’s spokesperson, Paul Ibe, has said the politician’s fans should not be demoralised by his comments.
“He spoke in the context of his ongoing consultations, but he’ll eventually make up his mind to run,” Ibe said. “Those who have started politicking on his behalf should continue.”
