After meeting IBB, Abdulsalam, Atiku visit Buhari in Daura

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Atiku Abubakar, has paid a visit to former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku paid homage to Buhari at his residence in Daura, Katsina State, on Saturday according to reports.

A video of the visit, seen by BusinesssDay showed that former governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, was part of Atiku’s entourage.

The visit is coming barely three days after Atiku visited former military heads of state, Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar, in their respective residences in Minna, Niger State.

Announcing the earlier visits in a post on X, Atiku had said, “Today, I paid Sallah homage to former Heads of State Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (rtd) and Gen. Abdusalami at their residences in Minna, Niger State.”

The visits have heightened speculations that Atiku is preparing grounds to contest the 2027 presidential election.

In May, Atiku had vowed to continue contesting for the presidency as long as he’s healthy.

He made the declaration amid moves to form a coalition with his counterpart from Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, and other political parties.

He had contested the president on several occasions in the past but lost.
