Atiku desperate to become president – Aisha Yesufu

Barely 23 days to the presidential election, Nigerian social critic, Aisha Yesufu, has alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is desperate to become president.

This was contained in a post via her verified Twitter handle on Thursday.

Recall that Atiku had in an interview on BBC Hausa Service said he was in talks with two presidential candidates, including Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP.

However, Obi has cleared the air on Atiku’s claim, saying he is not stepping down for any candidate and that he is a frontrunner in the forthcoming election.

Meanwhile, Yesufu has said Obi is the leading candidate, noting that Atiku is desperate to become president.

She wrote, “Atiku is desperate! Peter Obi is leading and is not stepping down for anyone. He is the force.”
