JUST IN: Atiku Eliminated as Nigeria's 'Kingmakers' Say Next President Must Be Less Than 70 Years Old

According to a report from The Sun, Atiku Abubakar's dream to become President come 2019 is bound to fail.
This is because Nigeria's ex presidents and alleged kingmakers- Ibrahim Babangida, Abdusalam Abubakar and Olusegun Obasanjo, have said that the next president must be aged less than 70 years old.

Atiku had reportedly met with Babangida and an ex-National Security Adviser, General Aliyu Gusau in February to seek his support for the upcoming presidential elections. However, Obasanjo's presence is a major stumbling block for him.

An APC chieftain from the same North East as Atiku reportedly stated: “baba (Obasanjo) said even if he’s dead and he hears Atiku wants to be president, he will beg God to allow him go and stop it”.

As a result, Obasanjo was said to have insisted at another meeting of the kingmakers in IBB’s home on May 2nd, 2017 that Nigeria’s next president must be below 70 years of age, thus technically ruling out Atiku, who will be 71 on November 25.

“It was agreed that the next president must be under 70, must be a pan-Nigeria personality from any part of the country. Ethnicity and religion must also not be a barrier", the source said.

However, Atiku’s spokesman, Paul Ibe said he has no knowledge Obasanjo's objection to the candidacy of his boss on account of his age.
