Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has been urged to put his 2027 presidential aspirations on hold by Chief Olabode George, the deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

George urged the former vice president to let younger Nigerians run during his appearance on Arise Television on Thursday.

He noted that Atiku, the PDP’s nominee in the previous two presidential elections, would be too elderly to lead the nation in 2027 at 81 years.

“My brother Atiku Abubakar was 77 years old last year, and by 2027 he will be 81 years old. Atiku should give room for younger Nigerians, who still have the energy and the brain to develop the country,” he said.

“Atiku should be in a situation where he plays like the big uncle in the room or the elder in the room.

“What would anybody carry me now to do because I’m heading to 80 years old and I want to go and be a minister? To do what?

“Let’s mentor the younger generation, and let’s be consistent with our strong belief in our party norms.”
