Atiku, Jonathan Meet Over 2019 Presidency
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar may be on his way out of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Atiku recently met with former President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja.
The meeting said to have been held at the instance of Atiku, who was said to be seriously considering offers made to him by a section of the leadership of the PDP to return and be the party's presidential candidate in 2019.
During the meeting, Jonathan was said to have advised Atiku to return to the PDP where he could reunite more easily with other founding fathers.
Jonathan also told Atiku to consider returning to the PDP early enough to avoid being caught by certain provisions of the party’s constitution, which stipulate a period of time a member has to spend in the party to guarantee eligibility.
It was further gathered that Jonathan told Atiku that he stood a better chance to realise his ambition in the PDP than the APC since President Muhammadu Buhari may seek re-election in 2019.
The former Vice President was said to have insisted on some conditions to be met before he could dump the APC for the PDP.
This included an assurance that he would get the party’s presidential without a contest as he does not want to be messed up for the third time.
