The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the return of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to the party as a welcome development.
PDP spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye said this in a statement on Sunday.
- Atiku had resigned from the APC, describing it as a dying party.
- The former Vice President had announced his return to the PDP in a Facebook live video.
What PDP said:
PDP said “We are indeed glad that he has realised the unbridled lies/deceit of his former Party, the All Progressive Congress, APC.
“The PDP remains his home; a house he was part of building and which he helped to nurture. We believe his return will add value in the process of rebuilding our Party to greater heights”.
“We will continue to remain transparent and dedicated to the service of this party. Again, we want to use this opportunity to call on all our members that are still in the APC or other parties to return home.
“We are equally extending our invitation to all those in the APC who are frustrated by the party’s failure to deliver the goods. Anyone who is desirous of a return to the era of abundance and freedom under the PDP administration is welcome. The umbrella is big enough to accommodate all.
“We enjoin our members nationwide to come together as one family, as we march to Eagle Square, Abuja on Saturday 9 – Sunday 10, December 2017 to elect our new leaders who will manage the affairs of our party at the national level,” the statement added.
