AHEAD of 2015 Presidential election, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has concluded plans to formally declare to run for the presidency, the most exalted office in the country, Wednesday, September 24 under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
According to Shehu, the former Vice President settled for Borisade because he is seen as a popular political strategist who worked for the victory of late General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua as well as the late Chief M. K. O. Abiola on the platform of the defunct Social Democratic Party, SDP. He recalled further that Borisade was also involved in the victory of former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 1999 and 2003 election.
Atiku Abubakar in his political sojourn again dumped the PDP for the All Progressives Congress, APC February 2, 2014.
