The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, will meet with the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) and other Northern groups.
In a statement on Friday by Atiku’s media adviser, Paul Ibe, the former Vice President will be hosted at the Arewa Joint Committee interactive session on Saturday at the Arewa House in Kaduna State. Ibe said the event is organised in order for the Northern elders to review the policy ideologies of presidential candidates of the major political parties in the country. He said Atiku would meet with the groups at 1:00 pm, stressing that the dialogue is an event scheduled on the campaign timetable and a rally is to follow on Monday in the state. Ibe asserted that the event is another chance for the PDP presidential candidate to showcase his policy document to the Northern leaders and Nigerians. He said: “The dialogue promises to be another opportunity for the PDP presidential candidate to relay his policy document titled, ‘My Covenant with Nigerians’ to the audience at the event.” Naija News reports that the interactive session is organised by several groups, including Arewa House, Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation, Arewa Research and Development Project, ACFand NEF among others.
