Nigeria’s main opposition candidate, Atiku Abubakar, says he’s ready to lead Africa’s most populous nation if given the mandate tomorrow.
He rejected corruption allegations against him, casting them as desperate attempts by his detractors to bring a successful man down.

He was speaking with CNN Africa office.
About 84 million Nigerians are expected to go to the polls on Saturday to elect a new President and a fresh National Assembly.
Atiku would need to beat President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress who boasted in an interview recently with CNN that no one would remove him from office.
The election to take place on Saturday was rescheduled from last week after the Independent National Electoral Commission claimed on election day that it was not ready.
