He said “Even though I know that President Buhari is not a democrat, I believe he will hand over if he loses.”

While addressing PDP supporters, who gathered at the residence of the embattled PDP Chairman in Kano, Ma’sud El-Doguwa, to welcome him, Atiku restated his earlier position on restructuring the country against recent criticism by the APC.

“I think the APC must be very ignorant because my position on the issue of restructuring dates back to the reports of the constitutional restructuring of 1994. If you check the report, you will find my contributions, as far as restructuring is concerned.

“By restructuring, I mean devolving powers to the states or geopolitical zones, as the case may be, so that they can assume and shoulder greater responsibilities of their respective states or zones.”

NAIJ.com earlier reported that Atiku Abubakar has played down suggestions that there is a serious rift between him and ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
