Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has said he is the most experienced candidate to lead Nigeria out of its present predicament.
Atiku said he would have defeated former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2003 if he had contested against his principal.
He described President Goodluck Jonathan as an inexperienced leader under whose leadership Nigeria was going through the worst of times.
Atiku, who is an aspirant of the All Progressives Congress presidential ticket, said he was the only one with the best democratic credentials to lead Nigeria to the next level.
The former Vice President spoke in Jos on Tuesday while addressing presidential delegates for Plateau State at his Rayfield House in Jos.
The APC presidential aspirant however said he was not desperate for power as he was ready to support any candidate that emerged as the party’s presidential flag bearer.
He said, “All these people contesting the presidency are inexperienced compared to my own experience and qualities in democracy, having been the Vice President of Nigeria for good eight years and nobody has broken this record today.
“Nobody fought the military in this country for democracy like me. My mentor, the late Shehu Yar’Adua, lost his life in the course of this struggle. For that reasone, I’m the most experienced politician among those contesting the Presidency.”
