APC robbed me of my mandate in 2019, but it won’t happen again, says Atiku

Former Vice President and Presidential aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has vented his heartaches while reminiscing on the 2019 presidential polls he lost to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Atiku speaking at the PDP delegates in Kaduna on Tuesday May 16, 2022 alleged that the APC denied him the mandate given to him by voters in 2019 using power of incumbency and the instrument of the Federal Government.

According to him, under no circumstance will that be allowed to repeat itself again in the 2023 elections should the party him the mandate to contest.
