Hajiya Titi Abubakar, wife of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential candidate , Atiku Abubakar, said she married her husband because of his honesty , sincerity and integrity .
Mrs , Atiku made the remarks when a group , Women for Atiku , paid her a courtesy visit at her Maitama residence in Abuja .

“ I get confused whenever I read the false allegations of corruption being peddled by mischief makers against my husband in the media .

“ I ask myself if they are referring to my husband whom I have been married to for 47 years or a different person .

“ No one knows my husband like I do and their descriptions of him are totally those of a different person and not those of the man I love and adore because of his uprightness , ” Mrs . Atiku said .

She said they were brought together by destiny and that she had been endeared to him because of his sterling qualities and patriotism to his fatherland.

“ I was on my way back to Nigeria from Benin Republic where I visited my aunt and was accosted by custom officials at the Idi – Iroko border who demanded the payment of a duty for the pair of brocade materials which were gifts from my aunt .

“ An argument ensued between us and I told them to keep the material because I would not pay duty for a pair of brocade , and a gift at that .

“ The officer , who was Head of the Command at that time intervened , paid for the duty charge and gave me the receipt .

“ One thing led to the other , we hooked up later and the rest is now history .

“ As the head , he could have chosen to order that I be allowed to go , but he paid for the duty and that act , from that time , impressed me and I fell deeply in love with the man Atiku , ’’ she said .

The National Coordinator of Women for Atiku , Mrs . Blessing Ebera , thanked Mrs . Abubakar for the warm reception accorded her group and pledged that it would continue to mobilise women across every ward to vote for Atiku Abubakar come 2019 .
