Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday paid a visit to Governor Darius Ishaku, to solicit for his support ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Atiku was accompanied by his campaign director general, Gbenga Daniel and other supporters from across the country.
Governor Ishaku and his deputy Haruna Manu, the Speaker Abel Peter Diah, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Victor Bala and other executives received the ex-VP at the Government House chamber in Jalingo.
“I have come to formally place before you a request for you to support me, to emerge not only as the candidate of our great party (PDP), but become the president of this country in 2019.
“You know, if I become the president of Nigeria, it is as good as a Taraban is the president.
“I believe you will oblige to my request,” Atiku said.
Atiku, who hails from neighboring Adamawa State, commended Taraba for remaining a PDP State since 1999.
