Atiku Abubakar

Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria?s Former Vice President has reacted to speculation that he had plans of defecting from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Movement in order to realise his presidential ambition. Atiku, who is a presidential aspirant, stated that he has no intention of leaving the APC for PDM or any other party.


According to a statement issued by Atiku?s media office on Tuesday, 28 October 28, 2014, ?Our attention has been drawn to a recent publication in the Nigerian Pilot newspaper, which alleges that APC Chieftain and presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar, intends to ?dump the opposition party (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM.

?This information is not only egregiously false, but our investigations have traced it to a senior APC member from the Northeast zone, who is working to further the presidential ambitions of another aspirant within the party. He is also known to be working with certain elements in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

?Sadly, this is not the first time that the Nigerian Pilot newspaper has yielded itself as a tool for the dirty machinations of this particular unscrupulous fellow. The Atiku Media Office has over the past few months had to issue a number of rejoinders against falsehoods of such low quality published by the newspaper.

?Atiku Abubakar believes in the ?Change? message of the APC. He believes that the party is the force that will enable Nigerians to vote the PDP out of power come 2015. He believes that APC is progress?.

Atiku?s media office therefore called on members of the public to completely disregard the information and any other publication about Atiku on the said newspaper.
