Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, in his consultations with South East Leaders, ahead of this weekend’s PDP Presidential Primaries, has reportedly said that he will only serve one term.

In his meetings with National Delegates and Leaders from the party on early Friday morning, the former Vice-President stated that he will only serve one term if elected Nigeria’s President in 2023, highlighting the fact that he was committed to an Igbo Presidency.

“The former Vice-President spoke like a true statesman. He understands that for there to be unity in the country, we need to include the South East in all political considerations. This is why we are proud that with our support, we can achieve an Igbo Presidency by 2027,” a high-ranking PDP Chieftain said.
Recall that in October 2018, following the selection of former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, the leadership of the party in the zone had, after the announcement of Obi, summoned an emergency meeting in Enugu, as several South East leaders had been offered the position.

With Peter Obi’s withdrawal from the PDP Presidential Primaries and resignation from the PDP, the former Vice-President has reportedly been meeting with South South and South East leaders to determine who he should select as his Vice-President.

In the last few weeks, he has held consultations with former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu; Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa; Akwa Ibom Governor, Udom Emmanuel; and former Senator, Ben Obi.
