My cordial relations with NASS stops Obasanjo’s third-term bid – Atiku

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says he developed an intimate relationship with the National Assembly members when he was serving as the vice-president which enabled them to stop the third term bid of the former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Atiku stated this on Sunday night at the 2023 Presidential Campaign Organisation strategic engagement meeting with National Assembly candidates in Abuja.

The statement read: “During my tenure as vice president, I developed a very intimate relationship with members of the National Assembly and it is that relationship that enabled us to stop the third term presidency attempt by President Obasanjo.

“I really look forward to re-engaging you as you return to the National Assembly for your functions from the constitution further to deepen democracy development and progress of our nation.”

The former vice president further noted, “Our nation has found itself in one of the most challenging times in the history of this country. You know that we are more divided than ever because of the activities and policies of the current APC government. Saying likewise our security situation has gone from bad to worse, our economy is in shambles.

“If you are elected and I am elected you are not going to work with somebody unknown, somebody who doesn’t have the experience. Like what we have currently today, we have a president that doesn’t even understand what the National Assembly stands for. Facing an incumbent president and still making sure that he protects the constitution.”

The stakeholders resolved their covenant with Nigerians to reduce the cost of government through improving citizen oversight and a strong emphasis on curbing waste and cost reduction.

The communique reads, “We commit to improving transparency and accountability across the whole government

“We commit to the reduction of the cost of government through improving citizen oversight and a strong emphasis on curbing waste and cost reduction

“We commit to reducing multidimensional poverty by 40% over the next 4 years and putting food on the tables of Nigerians again.”
