Nigeria’s former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, said on Monday in Kaduna that the days of the ruling People’s Democratic Party were numbered.
The former Vice President made the declaration when he spoke in an interview on the English service of the Liberty FM Radio, Kaduna, on Monday.
He said the new National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, could not do anything to change the fortunes of the party as the reconciliation moves would not achieve any meaningful result.
Atiku Monday embarked on a nationwide consultation to make a decision whether to join the All Progressives Congress, APC but with the reaction it seems he is set to go back to the opposition.
“I told him it won’t make a difference. Before he took up the job, he (Mu’azu) came to me and told me he wanted the job. I told him to leave it because ‘you are not going to do anything about it’,” he said.
On his previous defection from the PDP, the former vice President has the following to say…
He added, “First of all, I did not leave the PDP, I was pushed out of the PDP by my former boss. Ever since I returned four years ago, PDP has not communicated to me and I have not communicated to PDP. I have not attended any of their meetings and they have not invited me.”
