It was also gathered that Atiku’s running mate and former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, is also attending the meeting.

The Director-General of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Gbenga Daniel, who is a former Governor of Ogun State, is also present at the meeting.

“All of them, including Atiku, Saraki, Obi and Daniel, are meeting in Dubai now; the essence is to strategise ahead of the campaign”, the source said.

According to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, timetable and schedule of activities, issued by the Commission, campaigns for Presidential and National Assembly elections will commence on November 18, while campaigns for Governorship and State Assembly elections, will start on December 1.

Confirming the meeting in Dubai, the Spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Segun Sowunmi, said that there was a need for Atiku to meet with critical Stakeholders, ahead of the Presidential, Governorship, and other campaigns, scheduled to begin soon.

He said: “The appropriate response is that the former Vice President, who is now the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, after a very gruelling and rigorous campaign during the primaries, has taken a couple of days for a deserved rest.

“As a matter of fact, the quantum of work needed to be done in Nigeria, is such that the rest is almost turning out to be a working rest.

“He has been engaging quite a lot of critical Stakeholders, who have flown all the way there to have conversations with him, share ideas and rob minds with him, while others are there to felicitate with him on his victory.

“As soon as he returns to the country, the entire machinery for his Presidential campaign will be ready, and all Nigerians can look forward to a glorious, era so that the change to the change presently in place, happens.”

Asked to mention all the Stakeholders in the meeting, he said: “I am sure it is not an inventory-like meeting, where I will say who is there or who is not there. Frankly, I do not have a list of the people who are there, but I know a lot of high-ranking people are around the former VP, because of his goodwill which he has gathered over the years.”

On the party’s readiness for campaigns for the 2019 general elections, he said: “We are extremely prepared, because Nigerians are also ready. In going round the country, Nigerians have now keyed into the agenda of ‘let’s keep Nigeria working again’.

“Young people, businessmen, and everyone else, have been affected by the poor economic policies of the present administration. Nobody has been spared. Some people have felt it most deeply, because they lost their lives.

“People are ready to use their Permanent Voter Cards to exercise their franchise in the 2019 general elections, which we believe should be free, fair and credible.”
