Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president, met with members of his legal team for a crucial discussion.
Former Special Duties & Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Kabiru Tanimu Turaki (SAN), who led the legal team assisting Atiku, disclosed this.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, the meeting took place on Wednesday, August 10.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Turaki wrote: “Earlier today, I led a team of Eminent Legal Practitioners who are members of the Atiku legal team to a crucial meeting with our Presidential Candidate, and the incoming President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, GCON.”

Babangida Aliyu, the former governor of Niger State, has been tasked with concentrating on how to win over voters in his home state for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before making up promises to Atiku Abubakar about winning the president in 2023.
The warning was issued on Wednesday by a group known as the Northern Youths Movement (NYM), according to a statement its Chairman, Mallam Ishaya Jato, signed in Abuja.
Going back in time, the group said that Aliyu lost Niger State in past presidential elections when he was still serving as governor, so he has no moral authority to guarantee electoral success to a different candidate now that he is even out of office.
It also urged Atiku to start arguing for himself as the best candidate to govern Nigeria in the next elections.
However, NYM has now claimed that Atiku has been acting as though he has already won the 2023 presidential race as a result of such arrogant claims and pledges.
The committee recommended that Babangida Aliyu work to win Niger State for his party, the PDP, for the first election since 2011, rather than relying on votes from Rivers State and other South-South States.
Additionally, it urged Atiku to stand firm and show Nigerians that, should he lose the 2023 elections, he won’t simply run for office before escaping to Dubai.
