The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has told his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, to step down and endorse him for the 2023 presidential poll.
He stated this when he met with leaders from the northern part of the country under the umbrella of the Arewa Joint Committee for an interactive session on Monday.
The interactive session took place at the Arewa House in Kaduna.
It was organised by a coalition of six groups including the Arewa Consultative Forum, Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation, Northern Elders Forum, Jamar Matan Arewa, among others.
Tinubu asked Atiku to reciprocate his “gesture” in 2007.
That year, Tinubu dropped his ambition and endorsed Atiku who contested under the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).
“I supported Atiku Abubakar in 2007.
“Don’t blame me if I ask for the payback.
“It’s payback. Let him endorse me, instead of conducting rallies around Kaduna,” Tinubu said.
