Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has asked former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar should step down for him.
According to Mohamed, he has the requsite experience to pilot the affairs of the state if elected president of Nigeria in 2023.
The governor of Bauchi State was speaking on Consensus Dilemma and Endorsement Controversy in the PDP when he appeared on Channels TV’s Daily Politics Sunday.
The former FCT minister said he is more prepared as he is young, strong, and agile.
“I’m more prepared to run for the first seat under the platform of the PDP. I’m strong and agile. I’ve built bridges and I’ve goodwill across the country.
“The only thing that will make me step down for anybody is when Nigerians or party leaders reject me.”
The Bauchi State Governor, however, said that the recent endorsement of his presidential ambition by the Northern Elders Forum does not mark out any contender from the race.
