Atiku will serve 4 years and hand over to a young person - Spokesperson





- Segun Sowunmi, a spokesperson of Atiku Campaign Organisation, said Atiku Abubakar will hand over government to a young person after serving only one term

- Sowunmi said Atiku is ready to sign any document to prove that he won't exceed one term in office

The spokesman of Atiku Campaign Organisation, Segun Sowunmi, has said the Peoples Demoratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will only use four years in office if elected as president in 2019.

Sowunmi said like Nelson Mandela did in South Africa, Atiku is ready to use one term in office and hand over to a younger person.

Sowunmi made this statement while speaking with Osasu Igbinedion on The Osasu Show, The Cable reports.

He said: “On the one-term thing, I am being extremely honest with you. His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar was the one who said it himself, nobody forced him to say, nobody asked him to say, nobody pushed him to say it.

“I think he said, if the foundations are laid well, one term is more than enough to get the country ready. And he is also probably reacting to the fact that he is hearing that young people are also eager to take charge of their own country.

“He is asking them, ‘okay guys, I hear you, you want to take charge of your country, you have the right to take charge of your country, but it is too divided now, and its a mess.

“Let me stabilise it for you, let me bring about 40 percent of you, men and women, so you can learn exactly the nuances; what it looks like from outside and what it looks like from inside are two different things.

“Come and learn, and after four years, I can do a Mandela. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison, came out, he did four years, he did one term, and left power to a younger person, Thambo Mbeki, and the country is making progress.

“What he is saying is: ‘give me a legal document and I would sign it’. If you are too cynical to believe, if you bring that document, he would sign it.”
