Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar Dumps APC, Reunites With PDP

Unic Press UK: The former vice president Atiku Abubakar has reunited with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), thereby ending his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a Facebook live broadcast yesterday, Sunday, Atiku berated the APC for not creating jobs. He said:

“I have found in my travels across the country that whenever I get into conversations with young people, their number one concern is whether they will be able to get a job… without jobs there is no future for you or for Nigeria. I joined the APC as I had hoped it would be the new force that would help improve life for our people and I was excited about the party’s manifesto to create 3 million new jobs a year. The result has not been the change people had been promised or voted for, as in the last two years almost 3 million Nigerians have lost their jobs. 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 our young people, down.” (Atiku Abubakar: 2017)
