It's official - #ATIKUOUT!

Three days after walking away. The APC has confirmed the receipt of the resignation letter from the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku resigned from the APC on Friday following what he called Unconstitutional  Actions.

The APC after the news broke said the former Vice President has not officially informed the party of his decision.

But the Adamawa chapter of the APC on Sunday confirmed the receipt of Atiku’s resignation letter.

State Secretary of APC, Saidu Nera made this known in Yola.

Nera said he was yet to get the letter but the party officials of Jada 1 Ward in Jada Local Government Area where Atiku registered had told him that they had received it.

In the resignation letter to the party’s ward chairman in his Jada Ward 1,  Jada Local Government, Atiku said that the failure of APC to improve the lives of Nigerians has dashed the hope of the founding fathers of the ruling party.

The letter acknowledged by Usman Muazu also lamented what he described as the unbeatable hardship that the people are suffering: “I wish to inform you of my decision to resign my membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in this ward with effect from the date of this letter.”

“I am resigning from a party we formed and worked so hard, with fellow compatriots across the country, to place in government. I had hope that the APC  government will make improvements to the lives of our people and the continued existence and development of Nigeria as one indivisible nation. This hope has now been dashed.

“I am unable to reconcile myself with the dismal performance of the party in government, especially in relation to the continued polarization of our people along ethnic and religious lines, which is threatening our unity more than any other time in the recent past and the unbeatable hardship that our people are currently undergoing.

“As I said in 2006, it is the struggle for democracy, constitutionalism and service to my country and my my people that are driving my choice. Let me emphasize again that this is not about me. We have to have a country before people can aspire to lead it,” he said.

The former Vice President however expressed confidence that; “while wishing you well, let me express the hope that in the near future, a substantial number of you will join forces with us to once again defeat impunity and restore vision and purpose to the politics of our great country. Please accept the assurances of my highest regard.”
