Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and the leading presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) wholeheartedly welcomes the choice of Lagos as the venue for the presidential primaries of the APC scheduled for
December 10, 2014.
Atiku said in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja on Wednesday that the Turaki Adamawa is not only delighted that Lagos has been selected to host such an august event but is confident that the city has all it takes to ensure that the event will be memorable and successful especially in view of the cosmopolitan nature of the city and the famed easy going nature of its residents.
It should also be pointed out that the city of Lagos to former Vice President is like a home, bearing in mind that he spent several years of his public service career there.
“I’m not any less Lagosian that anyone is. I have a house in Lagos and a part of my large family lives in Lagos. I visit Lagos regularly so I’m not a stranger to the cosmopolitan city and what it represents as the melting pot of Nigeria,” Atiku said.
The former Vice President hereby congratulates the government and the people of Lagos State on this unique opportunity offered them by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to excel and showcase “the spirit of Lagos.”
