I Can Be President, Obasanjo Is Not God – Atiku
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that he can become president without the support of his former boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo.
He said during a BBC Hausa programme that Obasanjo is not God and will not stop his ambition if God says Atiku will rule this country as the next president.
Atiku had consulted Obasanjo but the former president said that over his dead body would Atiku rule Nigeria as he called on youths to join politics and not give chance to old politicians anymore.
Asked why he had not visited the United States over the years and if he would visit soon to launch his presidential ambition, Atiku said that he did not need to visit the US before becoming Nigerian president.
He queried if it was part of Nigeria’s constitution for a candidate to visit the US before becoming Nigeria’s president.
He explained that he had no case to answer in the US, adding that the last time he applied for the visa to travel to America, he was turned down and would not want to apply again unless he has a reason to do so.
