Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections, has characterized President Bola Tinubu’s administration as fleeting.
Expressing his determination to reclaim what he believes to be his stolen mandate, Atiku made these remarks during a PDP stakeholders’ gathering for elected party officials in Bauchi State on Saturday.
During the meeting, Atiku emphasized the importance of the PDP National Assembly members avoiding being mere “rubber stamp members” and encouraged them to assert their independence and fulfill their responsibilities with diligence.
Atiku said, “You are there to serve as a formidable opposition to this temporary administration.
“Based on the results announced by the INEC and pending the determination of electoral challenges in the court, our members-elect are not the majority in the National Assembly.
“So, for the time being, they have to prepare to work as an effective, constructive opposition while also preparing for possible roles of the majority party when the cases are resolved. A Government in-waiting, so to speak.”
