Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has commended lawmakers for dumping the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a post on his Twitter page, Atiku said the actions of the lawmakers indicated that there was hope that Nigeria could be rescued from the misrule of the APC government.

He wrote: “The decision of a significant number of members of both the Senate and the House of Representatives to leave the APC and decamp into the PDP clearly indicates that there is hope that the country can be rescued from the misrule of the APC government.

 “I want to extol the courage of those legislators for standing up for a mission of salvaging our democracy.

“At such a time like this when the APC has brought our country to an all-time low, it is commendable that these lawmakers have chosen to be on the right side of the moment and history shall keep a noble account of their exceptional courage.

“The choice of the PDP as a preferred destination is an endorsement of the kind of leadership the national chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has provided since assuming office.”
