During the 2023 Presidential election, Atiku came second after President Bola Ahmad Tinubu, which many political analysts view as a failure on the part of the opposition to merge and defeat the APC.

 

Those seen as potential allies for Atiku Abubakar are his competitors in the 2023 general elections, namely Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
