In recent weeks Atiku Abubakar has been campaigning on the issues concerning the economic state in Nigeria, trying to prove to Nigerians that he’s the better candidate that can boost the economy in Nigeria.
This report by The Economist which reveals him to be Buhari’s likely successor has given him the needed boost. The report reads:
“With the vote likely to be split in the north, Mr. Abubakar will find it easier to garner support from the country’s south, which has traditionally been a safe haven for the PDP.
“This gives Mr. Abubakar an edge, as does popular frustration over the rise in joblessness and poverty (two of the biggest voter concerns) on Mr. Buhari’s watch, as well as growing insecurity in central Nigeria.”
