Atiku made his comments as he took questions from a live audience after announcing his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday, November 3.

The former VP had been asked by an audience member identified as Ikechi, to explain his rationale for returning to the PDP even after the opposition party had been ruled out of Nigeria’s power equation forever, by the minister for information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Atiku stated that it was not man’s place to dictate the future, but God’s. He said: “Nobody knows the future other than God; and to dictate what the future will be is not within man’s purview.

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

Alhaji Mohammed had reportedly stated that the PDP would never return to power, especially since the Muhammadu Buhari administration had done well.
