Atiku Group Nationwide Decamps To PDP
Members of the Atiku Support Group (ASG) nationwide have decamped from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The group said it decided to join PDP as a result of the irregularities going on in the APC from the state to the national level.
Mark Wosi, the Director-General of ASG said the APC lacks focus.
According to him, ”APC is not focused; they promised change and an all-inclusive government but what is being obtainable is different; as a group, we felt we are not being carried along.”
Wosi also said the group has decided to go back to the PDP in order to “change the change. I am highly disappointed in the APC. I expected mature, coordinated politics from the ruling party, but I am disappointed.’’
“Buhari is telling people he is fighting corruption, while he is surrounded by the corruption he is claiming to fight. Nigerians are beginning to doubt his integrity, he should be serious at his age.
“It is very unfortunate that Nigeria’s hope has been dashed; if things continue like this, we are doomed.’’
On the former vice president, Atiku Abubakar’s position on the decamping to PDP, Wosi said “As a group, the ASG cannot speak for Atiku, but as his supporters, we are calling on him to come and contest on the platform of the PDP, a party which he was among the founding fathers.
“Politics is a game of numbers, the ASG is spread across the country with a large number of members and supporters. I believe our large number and sincerity of purpose can persuade Atiku to come back to the PDP.
He also noted that 2019 is going to be a very wonderful year politically because there is going to be a contest between two prominent Northerners; Buhari and Atiku.
