Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar says he will keep contesting for the Nigerian Presidency as long as he is hale and hearty.

He said this during an interview on Hausa Service of the Voice of America (VOA) in Abuja.

Atiku, 77, who was the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023 election, will be 81 by the next Presidential election which in. 2027.

“Of course, I will keep contesting again and again as long as I am alive and healthy”.

Atiku has run for the number one office six times but has been on the ballot as a Presidential candidate on three occasions 2007, 2019 and 2023.

The former Vice President said, he is consoled by the fact that former United States President Abraham Lincoln did not win the Presidential vote on the first time of asking.

“Even the former US President Abraham Lincoln contested seven times before finally winning.

“However, given the current state of the PDP, It is clear that a single-handed effort will not suffice to win the election. Strong support and collaboration with other parties are required”, he said.
