Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has challenged Nigerian youths to compete with the elders if they want to rule the nation.
Atiku spoke with newsmen after a closed-door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Asked to react to calls on older politicians to leave the stage for the youths, Atiku said the youths should also contest.
“Let the youth compete. It is competition. It’s a democracy,” Atiku replied.
He revealed that he would declare his 2023 ambition to contest soon.
Atiku also expressed confidence that he would win the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), asking, “Have I ever failed to win the ticket?”
“I came to meet my boss. We will let you know when I’ll declare, we will give a formal announcement,” he stated.
Atiku later met with the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo in his palace.
