APC Primaries: Atiku supports choice of Lagos as venue


ABUJA (SundiataPost) – Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has welcomed the choice of Lagos as the venue for the presidential primaries of the APC scheduled for December, 10.
Atiku said in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja on Wednesday that he was not only delighted that Lagos has been selected to host such an August event but is confident that the city has all it takes to ensure that the event would be memorable and successful especially in view of the cosmopolitan nature of the city and the famed easy going nature of its residents.
The statement said it should also be pointed out that the city of Lagos to former Vice President is like a home, bearing in mind that he spent several years of his public service career there.
“I’m not any less Lagosian that anyone is. I have a house in Lagos and a part of my large family lives in Lagos. I visit Lagos regularly so I’m not a stranger to the cosmopolitan city and what it represents as the melting pot of Nigeria,” Atiku said.
The former Vice President hereby congratulates the Government and the people of Lagos State on this unique opportunity offered them by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to excel and showcase “the spirit of Lagos.”
