APC Leaders To Visit Atiku Today

Atiku AbubakarFollowing the success it recorded in wooing five governors under the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) to join its fold, the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has concluded plans to catch another political big fish in the person of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

The governors, who defected to APC are Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Rabiu Kwankwanso (Kano); Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto); Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara); and Murtala Nyako (Adamawa).

Atiku, a member of the PDP, was the presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress in 2007, a party that transformed to Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, and later became a part of the three political parties that merged to form the APC.

The other two political parties were the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP).

The former Vice- President, however, returned to the PDP shortly before the presidential primaries of the PDP in 2010.

Atiku was also one of the masterminds of the faction of PDP that staged a walk-out of the ruling party’s special mini-convention last August, to form the New PDP.

It was learnt that the former VP would receive the leaders of the APC at his residence in Asokoro, Abuja.

The media aide to Atiku, Malam Garba Shehu confirmed the visit, saying “Yes, the leadership of the APC would visit Turaki at his residence in Asokoro tomorrow (today) at 11am”.
