Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has said that he is the stepping stone Igbo people of Southeast Nigeria can use for one of them to become President.


Atiku, who stated this in Enugu on Tuesday, when met he with PDP stakeholders in the Southeast, said, “I am the stepping stone for Igbos to become President of Nigeria,” adding that he would win the 2023 presidential election.

The former Vice President said he would prioritise developmental projects in the Southeast and other regions of the country, adding that any projects sited in any state of the federation are not a favour to the state but a favour to Nigeria.

“The second Niger bridge in Onitsha is not a favour to the Southeast, rather it is or should be seen as a favour to Nigeria. This is because it is not only the people of the Southeast that use the bridge,” he said.

On his relationship with the Igbo ethnic nationality, the former Vice President said he has a close relationship with the Igbo people, which he said influenced his choices of Senator Ben Obi and Peter Obi as his running mates in his previous outings as a presidential candidate.
