APC’s dismisses Atiku as no threat

Legit.ng reports that Atiku, 77, ran unsuccessfully for President of Nigeria six times, in 1993, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019, and 2023.

Ibrahim said Atiku would lose the 2027 presidential election heavily. According to him, the PDP leader would be defeated again.

He said:

“Our party, which is the All Progressive Congress, thrashed Atiku not once, not twice. Even when we thought he had the energy and little credibility to make him viable to Nigerians, we defeated him completely.

“How can someone who is just trying to regain his balance be a threat to the APC come 2027? That is unthinkable; Atiku can never be a threat to the APC. He wasn’t a threat when he had little value. How can he be a threat when he is already valueless? It’s a dream that will not come to pass.’’

Atiku not giving up on the presidency

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Daniel Bwala, a former spokesperson for the defunct presidential campaign organisation of Atiku, said that the PDP chieftain will still contest for the presidential seat in 2027.

Bwala made this known during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
