I AM NOT DESPERATE TO BECOME NIGERIA PRESIDENT, SAYS ATIKU ABUBAKAR
“All the times I have been contesting for the presidency, I have been opportune only once to be presented to Nigerians as a candidate. I could have become Nigeria’s president in 2003 when virtually, all the state governors then, rallied support for me to contest which I declined. I am not desperate to be president as some Nigerians view it.
“As a former Vice President, I am opportune to know things. If I am opportune to be elected as a president, I will accomplish my mission by reviving the economy, by making Nigeria an investor’s haven’, he said, adding that the remaining times, he ended up only at the primary election.
“The present administration discouraged investors into the country, because the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) exchange rate policies is too tedious for investors. CBN has three different exchange rate policies, which is not supposed to be.
“If elected Nigeria’s president, I will expand the nation’s source of wealth to cater for the growing youth population in the country. Nigeria can justify my claims, going by the number of youth that are working in my industries across the country,” he said.
