APC, my final bus-stop, says Atiku
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has stated that he remains a committed member of the All progressives Congress (APC), even as he denied knowledge of the groups of politicians who announced their defection to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from the APC.
Atiku, in a statement by his media office in Abuja stated that there are no plans by him, or his groups to dump the APC for PDP. He also urged that the purported defections of these groups in his name be discountenanced.
He said, “When I toured our country and listened to the hopes, fears and expectations of Nigerians from all walks of life, I said APC is the final bus stop, and that it is the end of the line.”
It would be recalled that the political machinery of the former Vice President under the umbrella body, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku (AAA) and People’s Democratic Movement (PDM) in six states in south-west Nigeria had declared their unwavering support for President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming presidential election.
