Former Vice President and Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said that he is not desperate to be President of the country.
Atiku said this today while speaking with newsmen in Benin city, Edo state where he went to pay the Oba of Benin a courtesy visit.
He told reporters that if he was desperate to be the president, he would have done so in 2003.
“What do you expect my critics to say. I can run as many times as I want.
I am fit and qualified and I still have ideas to put this country on the right path. What is wrong in trying again and again.
I am not desperate to become President.
If I were desperate, I would have taken the presidency in 2003.
If I were desperate, I would not have stepped down for Abiola. I have the interest of this country.” Atiku said
