Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has said he is not really a politician but a businessman.
The Turakin Adamawa disclosed this on Saturday via his Twitter account while engaging a resident who’d commended him for investing more in Nigeria than other politicians who “consume our commonwealth”.
Reacting to the comment, the former Vice President tweeted, “I see myself as a businessman first. A politician in the true sense of the word, is not a businessman.”
There have been rumours that the former Vice President is gearing up to throw his hat in the ring as the battle for the 2019 presidential election approaches, a claim he has denied. Atiku has also debunked reports that he was planning to return to his former party, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
