Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said he is running for president to bring his business and political experience to bare in the governance of the country.
Atiku, who spoke during a live town hall meeting held at Sheraton Hotel, Abuja, tagged ‘The Candidates,’ on Wednesday evening, said he saw himself as a bridge between the current and future generations.
He said “I would like to claim that, as far as experience is concerned, I am the most experienced. Secondly, I am bringing my business experience, which I acquired over a long period, almost two decades after leaving public service.
“Thirdly, I believe that I am a candidate for the future because I try to bridge the current generation and the future generation. When we come to the issue of security, at the time they came in, the security challenge was restricted to the North-East.
“Today, it has spread to two other northern zones — North-West and North-Central. I don’t think that is a good performance. On the basis of that, I think Nigerians needs to know all that. The current All Progressives Congress administration has really not performed to their expectations.”
