Atiku welcomes Governors Ahmed, Tambuwal, others back on board PDP

Atiku Abubakar
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is delighted to find himself having to rejoice again with another set of All Progressives Congress (APC) politicians for crossing over to the Peoples Democratic Party in just 24 hours.

The former vice president according to a press statement by his media office, congratulates Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara state and Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state as they rejoin the Peoples Democratic Party. 

He also welcomes back to the fold deputy governor of Kano state, Prof Hafizu Abubakar and Nigeria’s Ambassador to South Africa, Alhaji Ahmed Ibeto.

The statement notes that when in December 2017, the Waziri Adamawa said the APC has to embrace the true tenets of democracy or lose its soul, he was greeted with hostility and his warnings were scorned.

At that time, Atiku Abubakar had warned that without justice, there could be no unity and without internal democracy there could be no internal cohesion, the statement added.

Atiku Abubakar therefore calls on all true lovers of democracy and progress to, like Aminu Tambuwal and Abdulfatah Ahmed, emancipate themselves from the faux democracy practiced in the APC and move over to the only party capable of entrenching genuine democracy in Nigeria and economic progress for Nigerians.

He further calls on the federal government to respect the decisions of those now voting with their feet and ensure that they are not persecuted by security officials and law enforcement agencies.

He also urges the powers that be to note that the Peoples Democratic Party set up quite a number of these agencies to fight crime and criminality and not to fight democracy and democrats.
