PDP welcomes Atiku from APC

PDP welcomes Atiku, says he has realised the unbridled lies of the APC,


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said Atiku Abubakar is welcome in the party. Atiku, a former Vice President under the PDP platform defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) prelude to 2015 election. But he announced his return to the PDP on Sunday.

In a statement, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Dayo Adeyeye said Atiku, by his moving to APC has been given the privilege of a first experience of ‘unbridled lies/deceit of the APC’

The statement read: “Formal Return To Our Party…A Welcome Development – PDP

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) welcomes the return of the Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, (Wazirin Adamawa) to our great Party, the PDP today. We are indeed glad that he has realized the unbridled lies/deceit of his former Party, the All Progressive Congress (APC). The PDP remains his home; a house he was part of building and which he helped to nurture. We believe his return will add value in the process of rebuilding our Party to greater heights.

“This is another milestone recorded by the current leadership of our Party in its quest to reconcile, rebuild and restructure the PDP ahead of the 2019 General Elections and beyond. We will continue to remain transparent and dedicated to the service of this Party. Again, we want to use this opportunity to call on all our members that are still in the APC or other parties to return home. We are equally extending our invitation to all those in the APC who are frustrated by the Party’s failure to deliver the goods . Any one who is desirous of a return to the era of abundance and freedom under the PDP administration is welcome. The Umbrella is big enough to accommodate all.

“We enjoin our members nationwide to come together as one family, as we march to Eagle Square, Abuja on Saturday 9 – Sunday 10, December 2017 to elect our new leaders who will manage the affairs of our Party at the National Level. God bless the PDP! God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria”, said Adeyeye.
