The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has promised that the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will walk in the footsteps of iconic former South African president, Nelson Mandela.
Mandela was South Africa’s first black president, an anti-apartheid revolutionary who fostered racial reconciliation after being imprisoned for 27 years, garnering international acclaim for his activism. The Nobel Peace Prize winner is widely considered an icon of democracy and social justice even years after his death in 2013.
While speaking during an interview on Arise News on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, Secondus said Atiku’s reputation will not be affected by the negative impressions being created by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said the former vice president will act like Mandela if he beats President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
“I can tell you Atiku is going to be like Mandela in terms that he would devolve himself from any business. All these impressions being created by the opposition, he’s going to come out clean. He’s going to exactly behave like Mandela. He’s seen it all,” he said.
