Adamu Atiku Abubakar, the Commissioner for Works and Energy in Adamawa State has disclosed that his father Atiku Abubakar would contest 2023 presidential election.
Abubakar gave this hint while presenting the scorecard as Commissioner for Works and Energy in Adamawa State to mark the first anniversary of Adamawa Governor Ahmadu Finitiri.
“Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with my father contesting for the presidency.
“In 2023, my father will be aspiring to the number one office in the land because he has been an astute, strategic, master politician for almost four decades,” Abubakar said.
According to Adamu Abubakar, his coming late into politics was as a result of the advice from his father.
He said: ”My father urged me to spend more time in the private sector to gain enough experience, which would be crucial for him in public life.
“I am basically here to serve my people; if I am called by the people back home to run for the Senate, I don’t see anything wrong with that.”
