Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, on Tuesday, storms Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, in continuation of his consultation over his presidential ambition.
Atiku is one of the leading presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The thrust of his campaign has been his determination to restructure Nigeria if elected into office in 2019.
He was in Lagos on Monday where he said it was time the state was liberated from the grips of former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

He said the people of Lagos State should no longer be under the control of Tinubu.
Atiku who was hosted at the PDP secretariat in Lagos on Monday expressed regret that he supported President Muhammadu Buhari to emerge as the president in 2015.
According to him, the decision to support Buhari had left the country in pain.
“I want to appeal to Nigerians to give me another opportunity to correct the mistakes that I made in the past and that mistake was by supporting to bring President Buhari to power. This mistake has brought us to have the worst economy since 1999.
“We are still trying to recover from recession. Life has been made very impossible because of insecurity. I have not seen this country so unsecured. In the North, we find it difficult to go to farm for fear of being kidnapped or killed by herders and by the end of this farming season we may have food scarcity.
“Our unity in this nation had not been so divided. This government is insensitive to the plight of the people. I will use six months to restructure Nigeria,” Atiku said.
