The Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar has made it clear that he has nothing against President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) even as he said that he has no plans to quit active politics yet.

A statement today, September 7, by Paul Ibe, his media adviser said that Atiku “has nothing personal against President Tinubu. He owes him no ill will.”

Paul Ibe said that the PDP presidential candidate is not going into retirement and will instead continue to be part of the struggle to deepen democracy in the country.

“This struggle is not about Atiku; it’s about Nigeria and the future of our democracy.

“By allowing election riggers to get away with their misdeeds, our democracy will be in greater jeopardy. “Consent is essential to democratic mandate; ruling people against their will undermines everything democracy stands for.”

He stressed that the struggle is about principle and justice and that Atiku is not in this struggle because he hates Tinubu.

“He is in it to ensure that people who rigged elections are not allowed to get away with it. “Injustice and rigging promote bitterness and division. No leader should be proud to lead angry and aggrieved citizens.”
