Eaglesforesight gathered from a closer source from the North, that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President and presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has stated that he was never a supporter of the Northern Consensus established by former Military President Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (rtd).

In a statement issued by his chairman, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, the Technical Committee for the Actualisation of Atiku Abubakar’s Presidency in 2023 said the former vice president did not submit himself to any purported consensus process and thus was not bound by any of the report’s recommendations and conclusions.

“As an outspoken nationalist, Waziri Atiku Abubakar feels Nigeria has never been more divided than it is now. Any “consensus” arrangement based on any regional, zonal, ethno-religious, and/or sectional gang-up, he says, will only deepen and extend this split, worsening the wounds that need to be healed.
