2019: Atiku, 41 Political Parties Meet, Strategise On How To Defeat Buhari
Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as well as the leadership of his campaign council have met with members of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).
The meeting, held at the Transcorp Hilton Abuja on Friday, was meant to strategise ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Atiku disclosed that if elected his administration would stick to the tradition of the PDP to run a government of national unity.
“I want to assure you that as long as we have a government of national unity, there will not be a cabal,” Atiku said.
While thanking CUPP for adopting him, the ex-vice president urged the collation not to “rest on its oars until the mission to oust President Muhammadu Buhari from office was accomplished.”
Senate President Bukola Saraki, who also spoke with the group asked them to remain resolute and take a position with INEC on the 2018 electoral bill.
Saraki urged the political parties to add their voices and demand that the APC conduct free, fair and credible elections in 2019.
The meeting comes less than 48 hours after the CUPP adopted the former Vice President as its presidential candidate in the 2019 election.
