Atiku Abubakar Announces Presidential Bid for 2027

In a move that has stirred the Nigerian political landscape, Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President of Nigeria and the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate in the 2023 presidential election, has declared his intention to run for the presidency in the 2027 elections. This announcement came amidst speculations of potential alliances with other opposition parties.

Abubakar, who has been a key figure in Nigerian politics for decades, made his intentions clear during an interview on Wednesday, May 22. His declaration has sparked discussions about the future of political coalitions and the PDP’s strategy moving forward.

At 77 years old, Abubakar remains determined to pursue the highest office in the land, drawing parallels with former US President Abraham Lincoln, who also faced multiple electoral setbacks before securing the presidency. Abubakar’s commitment to contesting “as long as he is hale and hearty” reflects his unwavering dedication to public service and his belief in the democratic process.

The announcement follows recent meetings with Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s flagbearer in the 2023 election, hinting at a possible collaboration that could reshape the opposition’s approach to the upcoming electoral cycle. While details of these meetings have not been fully disclosed, they signify a willingness among opposition leaders to consider uniting forces against the ruling party.
