Atiku is Selfish, We Can't Support Him in 2027, CUPP Fires

Atiku is Selfish, We Can
Atiku Abubakar
The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), has disappointed the former Vice President of Nigeria and serial presidential contestant, Atiku Abubakar, as the group rejected his preference as its rallying point presidential candidate ahead of the 2027 General Election.

The position of the CUPP was disclosed ina a a statement released by the National Secretary of the coalition, High Chief Peter Ameh, on Saturday, January 6th, 2024.

Ameh restated that the position of the coalition was unveiled to debunk a claim by one of the aides to Atiku Abubakar who released a publication that the CUPP has agreed to throw its weight behind his principal in the 2027 presidential election.

He said, “We in CUPP hereby wish to disassociate ourselves from that proposition because of the reasons mentioned hereunder.”

Listing the reasons for rejecting Atiku, the opposition national scribe said, “CUPP had worked with Atiku in the past only to realize later that we worked for a candidate who cared for himself, his ambition, and his ambition only without giving a hoot for other coalition partners. It is also in the public sphere that former Vice President Atiku has severally professed his aversion to multi-party democracy. He is a fan of either one or two-party systems only.”

He recalled that "in the run-up to the 2019 general election, more than 35 political parties went into a coalition, which led to the formation of CUPP as it is today with PDP and former Vice President Atiku as its consensus presidential candidate, noting that

"CUPP worked tirelessly for the former Vice President to become the president of Nigeria and lost at the polls.

He said, "After Atiku lost, he turned his back on his coalition partners, and practically threw the coalition parties under the bus and ran away to Dubai only to surface towards the 2023 general election.

“We remember sending a delegation of the coalition to him to seek his opinion on the way forward for the opposition parties, only to be told by him that he did not believe and had never believed in multi-party democracy which was the bedrock of constitutional democracy and the reason for the existence of the parties that went into that coalition with him,” he added.

CUPP queried how a man who is so enamored with a one-party system and had severally professed his aversion for multi-party democracy leads and is nominated to be at the forefront of such a struggle.

“CUPP sees this as trying to fly a wingless kite, which can never be airborne. He is trying to rally the opposition parties to take upon themselves a fight (install him as the president), which he has tried severally and failed.

“CUPP hereby urges the former Vice President Atiku to leave the stage now that the ovation is high. He has done his best as a consummate politician, he has contested severally for the office of the president without victory, the time is now ripe for him to quit the stage for the younger elements and start portraying himself as a statesman who he truly is,” the statement read.
