Former Vice-President and a Presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said he will not dump the party should he fail to secure the Presidential ticket.
Atiku, made this promise yesterday in Benin, the Edo State capital, at a meeting with some party leaders to solicit the support of Edo delegates to the primaries.
The Presidential aspirant said his experience in government triggered him to vie for the Presidency. He said further that his wealth of democratic experience and entrepreneurial capability has set him apart from other candidates.
His words: “My reason for seeking the presidential ticket, most importantly, is to serve. I have a passion for service and I do not intend to give up on Nigeria. There is nothing going on in the country, whether it is security or economy.”
