2019 Polls: Adamawa PDP woos Atiku.


The Adamawa State chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has called on former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar to return to the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The state Chairman of the party, Mr Shehu Tahir, made the call while speaking the party’s stakeholders meeting on Wednesday in Yola.

He said that the problem that led to mass defection of former members of the party to other parties were over, hence the need for them to return.

“It is not a wise decision for Atiku to abandon the house he helped to build, so we want him back,” he said.

“We are calling on Atiku Abubakar, who is among the PDP founding fathers, not to abandon the house he had helped to build.

“This is because the party needs him now to continue from where he stopped.

“We urge our stakeholders to prevail on him and others who left to reconsider their decision and return to the party.

On the 2019 general elections, the Chairman said that the party was ready to provide credible alternative to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

According to the chairman, the party’s doors are open to all Nigerians willing to join its fold, assuring that level playing ground would be provided to all members.

THEWILL gathered from top party sources that Atiku will formally dump the APC for PDP at the party’s national convention on December 9, 2017.
