The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has revealed that the late Musa Yar’Adua, anointed him for President in 2003.
Yar’Adua, a former president of the country, passed away in 2010 with his then-Vice Goodluck Jonathan taking over.
Atiku said this at the presidential campaign of the PDP, in Katsina State on Thursday.
“I was introduced into politics by late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua of blessed memory and I grew up in politics in Katsina,” he said.
“Later, late Shehu anointed me as the presidential candidate in 2003.
“Today, it is time to fulfill the dream of late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua. Would you help Shehu achieve his unfulfilled dream?”
“The APC, three and half years ago, came here to promise you that they will restore the economy, improve security and unemployment, but they have failed.
“I am assuring you that if elected, we would restore the security, address the issue of unemployment and by the time that is done, we must have addressed hunger in the country.
“We would closely work with Lado (Katsina governorship candidate) to achieve this together in the state level.”
