Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has officially declared to run for the office of the President of Nigeria in the 2019 General Elections.
Atiku Abubakar made this declaration in River State Nigeria under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former Vice President commended the River State Governor Nyesom Wike for standing firm and building the PDP. Atiku said the ruling party All Progressive Congress APC has failed Nigerians and greatly divided Nigerians along religious and ethnic lines and must be changed.
Host Governor Wike said the task ahead was to make sure the failed ruling party APC does not return to power.
