All is now set for the formal declaration of interest for the office of the President in the 2019 general elections by former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
A close associate of the PDP chieftain confided in Vanguard, yesterday, that the formal declaration slated in the third week of June, will hold in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The source said but for the foreign trip made by the former vice president to the London Royal Institute of International Affairs in the United Kingdom last month, the declaration would have held about a month ago.
While noting that Atiku has been very impressed with the outcome of his ongoing nationwide consultation, he added that a formal declaration would signal his readiness for the big test, starting with the “internal effort of getting the PDP ticket first.”
