Atiku Begs For Forgiveness For Allowing Tinubu Win In 2003

Presidential hopeful and former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has revealed that he deliberately left Lagos out of the Southwest states penciled for take-over by the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2003 polls.
The PDP presidential aspirant made the disclosure yesterday, while meeting with party stalwarts in Lagos. He said he deliberately excluded Lagos by then because of his long-time relationship with the former Lagos governor, just as he pleaded with the people of the state to forgive him for that costly mistake.

The former Vice President said if given another chance he would not repeat such mistake, adding: “When the PDP came to power in 1999, the entire Southwest states were controlled by the Alliance for Democracy (AD), but in 2003, I told my boss, former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, to give me the authority to take over the Southwest
, which he did and I took over all the southwest states except Lagos.
“I left Lagos, because Tinubu and I have come a long way from the PFM, PDM to SDP. For that reason I decided to leave Lagos for him. I could easily have taken over Lagos, but unfortunately he (Tinubu) used Lagos to bounce back and today we have lost the Southwest states to the ruling APC.”

While asking for forgiveness for leaving Lagos out of the 2003 takeover arrangement, Atiku declared: “If I have another opportunity, Lagos will go together, I can tell you that. I knew what I did to preserve Lagos, but I want to appeal to you to give me the chance to return, so that I can correct that mistake. That mistake brought us to where we are today.

“Lagos State and its resources have completely become the property of one person and their children. If you continue in this stage after next election, it means you are going to be responsible to only one person.”

Atiku warned Nigerians never to make the error of reelecting the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari next year “for the sake of their present and future, the future of their children and grand children and the generation to come.”
He also flayed the economic policies of the ruling party, saying Nigeria now has the worst economy since the return of democracy in 1999.

Atiku is a joker 

So he would've taken Lagos just like that if he wanted? He's trying to paint himself as one powerful political juggernaut that he isn't.
