According to him, the former vice-president is free to dump the governing All Progressives Congress and return to the PDP.

He added that the party was ready for Atiku’s return and would warmly accept him and his supporters back to the PDP fold.

The BoT chairman, who spoke to journalists in Kaduna, argued that with the treatment being meted out to the former vice-president by the APC, he (Atiku) had no option than to join the PDP ahead of 2019.

The PDP had before the 2015 presidential election, granted former President Goodluck Jonathan sole candidacy, an automatic ticket that some members of the party said it contributed to the loss of the election to President Muhammadu Buhari.
