Speaking while responding to a question from a live audience when he declared his formal return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Facebook Live on Sunday afternoon, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, warned politicians to desist from making absolute statements about which party Nigerians will choose to entrust with their mandate in 2019.

According to Premium Times, the former vice-president said only a hubris could drive politicians to grandstand about future realities that they have no control over, adding that no man is equal to God.

He said; “Nobody knows the future other than God and to dictate what the future will be is not within man’s purview.”

Atiku was asked by an audience, identified only as ‘Ikechi’, to explain why he returned to the PDP, a party which the Minister of Information Lai Mohammed, had reportedly ruled out of Nigeria’s power equation forever.

“But it is about Nigeria not about power. Power for powers own sake breeds arrogance and arrogance makes men say things like that,” Abubakar responded.

Media reports quoted Lai Mohammed as saying during a visit to Jigawa State towards the end of November that the PDP will never come back to power, especially since the current administration has done well.

The PDP was in control of Nigeria’s political centre from 1999 when the country returned to democracy after years of military rule until 2015 when Goodluck Jonathan became the first incumbent president to be defeated in the country’s history.

As at the time of filing this report, neither Lai Mohammed nor his spokesperson, Williams Adeyemi, immediately returned requests for comments on Monday morning.
