Atiku joins PDP says APC let me down

Atiku joins PDP. The former vice president has officially announced his coming back to PDP. He made a live broadcast in his Facebook page that he is rejoining the PDP. He said he is returning to PDP because PDP has let me and many Nigerians especially the youth down.

In the Facebook live broadcast, Atiku said  “Some of you may know that I was elected vice president under the banner of the PDP, which is the political party that I had helped to found some 10 years before.

Some of you may also know I left the PDP four years ago when I believed it was no longer aligned to the principles of equity, democracy and social justice, upon which we had found it. Atiku joins PDP

“I joined the APC as I hope it will be the new force that will help improve life for our people. I was excited about the party’s manifesto to create 3 million new jobs a year.

“The result has not been the change people have been promised or voted for.  In the last two years, almost 3 million Nigerians have lost their jobs. And today with a record 25 percent of people aged between 18-25 years unemployed, I can see how difficult it is for our youths to find jobs. The key to creating jobs is a strong economy, that is where we are currently lacking. Atiku joins PDP

“So today, I want to let you know that I am returning home to the PDP, as the issues that led me to leave it have now been resolved and it is clear that the APC has let the Nigerian people and especially, the young people down. Atiku joins PDP

Meanwhile different reactions have trailed the deflection of Atiku to PDP. The deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has described the return of the former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to the Peoples Democratic Party, as a welcome development, not only for the party but also for Nigeria’s democracy.
