Senator Dino Melaye , former lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, on Friday said that running mate to President Buhari in the 2015 general elections under the Peoples Democratic Party Platform PDP is qualified to run for presidency in 2023.
In an interview with him, he was asked if Atiku would join the 2023 presidential race again, the ex-lawmaker said although he is qualified to aspire for the highest office in the land, he (Melaye) is not in a position to speak for the ex-Vice President.
“Atiku Abubakar is qualified in all ramifications to run for the Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It is not for me to ask him to run or not to run. Whether he should or not, my opinion is immaterial.
“When we get to the presidential primaries, I will vote for an aspirant I feel is qualified to run for the PDP. That is my personal opinion,” he added.
