Atiku in need of campaign DG, seeks Obasanjo’s endorsement

It has been learned that plans are currently ongoing for the inauguration of the campaign council of the standard bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

A spokesperson for the PDP candidate, Paul Ibe, revealed this in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja.

According to Ibe, the council will be formed in such a way individuals who lost out in the primaries of the PDP are integrated into the team.

Speaking with our correspondent on Saturday, Ibe said, “Plans are underway to inaugurate the campaign council and appoint a director general. You have to understand that this is not just an Atiku thing. Everyone has to be involved. There are plans to integrate other individuals who lost out at the primaries.”

Meanwhile, there are indications that Atiku’s camp is making plans to get the support and open endorsement of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Obasanjo had declared support for Atiku and his running mate, Peter Obi, in the 2019 general elections.

In a recent development, the National Publicity Secretary of the Atiku Support Organisation, Dr. Victor Moses, said that there were genuine moves in line to make sure we get “Baba Obasanjo” on our side.

He noted that if Obasanjo could endorse Atiku in 2019, he might do so in 2023.
