The former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has promised Southeast people that he would hand over to them after a single tenure in office.



The presidential hopeful made this know during his nationwide consultation on his ambition for the 2023 general election.

The statement was made known by the head of media, Atiku campaign organisation, Raymond Dokpesi on Monday in Enugu.

He says:

Our party believes in rotation of the office of president between the north and south for two-term of eight years,” he said, launching into the most recent political history and PDP’s unwritten rotational presidency understanding.

According to him, it was the agreement that produced the late Umaru Ya’Adua, and former President Goodluck Jonathan who took over after Yar’ Adua died in office, and completed his own first term of four years in 2015.

The north would not tolerate yet another term Jonathan demanded.

“So we went into the election with a divided house and we lost,” Dokpesi said.

He said it is believed that the north-east and south-east are the two geo-political zones that have not produced a president in Nigeria.

“We felt that Atiku, coming from the north-east, is a strong candidate for the job.
