Atiku To Visit PDP Secretariat On Tuesday
Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar will visit the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abuja, on Tuesday, the Nigerian Pilot learnt on Monday night.
This follows his return to the party on Sunday.
Atiku had resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress about two weeks ago, claiming that the ruling party had deviated from its promises to Nigerians.
Besides, he accused the leadership of the party of not carrying its members along in decision-making.
It was gathered that members of the National Caretaker Committee of the PDP, led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi, had been informed of Atiku’s visit.
The former vice-president had requested to meet with the caretaker committee in order to ensure his return to the party was without hitches.
Atiku was said to have written a letter to Makarfi, requesting for the visit.
The visit would come up at noon.
The Publicity Secretary of the caretaker committee, Dayo Adeyeye, confirmed the planned visit by Atiku.
