A former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has allegedly acquired a 5-storey building to serve as his presidential campaign office in Abuja.
The Nation reports that Atiku's political machinery is already on top gear as the massive building acquired is located on Ademola Adetokunbo crescent in Abuja.
Source said activities on Atiku's presidential ambition would kick-off fully at the end of the Ramadan fasting.
It was also gathered that many of Atiku's supports are holding informal high-powered meetings in Dubai and Saudi Arabia as a move to actualise his ambition to run for Nigeria's presidential seat in 2019.
In his reaction, the media adviser to the former vice president, Paul Ibe, said he is not aware of the acquisition.

Ibe said: “Where I am operating from now is the Atiku Media Office; eventually, we would have to get a building for that (campaign) purpose but I am not yet aware of any in the place that you described."
NAIJ.com earlier reported that the former vice president's campaign took a new turn after a group promised to buy his nomination form.
The group while making the pledge said the former vice president has all it takes to redeem Nigeria from its current challenges.
The Youth in Support of Atiku 2019 (YISA) said it has opened a bank account to enable its members raise funds from volunteers to buy the 2019 presidential form for Atiku.
