Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023 Presidential election, Alhaji Abubakar has declared that Northerners do not need someone who is either Igbo or Yoruba ethnic extraction as the next President of Nigeria.
The former vice-president who hails from Adamawa in the north-eastern part of Nigeria, dropped the hint on Saturday at the interactive session of Arewa town hall policy dialogue in Kaduna.
TheCable said Abubakar, told his audience who included a significant percentage of persons of Hausa and Fulani extraction, that they don’t need an Igbo or Yoruba as president but “someone from the north”.
The northerners should trust him with their votes, adding that he’s the most qualified to be president, according to him.
“I have traversed the whole of this country,” he said, “I know the whole of this country. I have built bridges across this Country. I think what the average northerner needs is somebody who is from the north, and who also understands the other parts of Nigeria and who has been able to build bridges across the rest of the Country.
“This is what the northerners need. He (northerner) doesn’t need a Yoruba Candidate, or an Igbo Candidate. This is what the northerner needs.
“I stand before you as a pan-Nigerian of northern origin”, Atiku said while boasted that he has transverse Nigeria’s 36 States and understands their peculiarities and diversities.
