Politics Atiku Denies Giving Up Presidential Ambition to Contest Adamawa Governorship Election



On Saturday, several media houses (not Nigerian Bulletin) published a story claiming that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar was giving up his presidential ambition to contest in the Adamawa governorship election under the All Progressives Congress, APC.

However, Atiku has taken to social media to squash the rumour. On His Facebook wall, he wrote, "
I just read this rumour that I am running for governor of Adamawa State. This is not true #smile

I was elected governor of Adamawa State 15 years ago, but was elevated to the position of Vice President. I believe we must always look forward, not backwards.

I will never back away from supporting the development of my home state, as I have always done, both as a businessman and a statesman".
