The North East Business Community had earlier endorsed Atiku as its presidential candidate for the 2023 election, a decision that led the group to purchase the Nomination and Expression of Interest forms of the PDP for Atiku. It is understood that Dr. Bappayo’s appointment is the fourth recent appointment of young Nigerians that the PDP presidential flag-bearer will be making ahead of the 2023 election.
