Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has asked politicians who dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for other parties to return, saying there “is no other political party” in the country apart from the PDP.
The former vice president made the assertion Tuesday in Abuja when he paid a courtesy call on the national leadership of the party at its national secretariat in the nation’s capital.
Alhaji Atiku had only recently dumped the governing All Progressives Congress, APC to return to the PDP, which he left in 2014.
Accompanied by his loyalists and praise signers, the Waziri Adamawa, showered encomiums on the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the PDP, just as he expressed gratitude to the leadership of the party for receiving him at short notice.
“I like to thank you very much indeed for this privilege and opportunity granted me to do so, realizing that this is a very busy for you.
All what I have come to do today is to come and show my face. Many people have read in the media that I have returned home. This is home.
Mr. Chairman, I want to congratulate you for a wonderful work which you have been doing to redeem the image of this party, to return it, rebrand it and return it to its original form.
I want to assure you of my support and cooperation at all times, to make sure that these objectives are achieved by you and subsequently by your successors”.
