Atiku’s Defection: We Are Not Intimidated, Adamawa PDP Stakeholders Declare

pdpdey (1)Stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa State yesterday declared that the defection of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not in any way affect the party’s chances in the state.

In a statement issued by the Adamawa State PDP stakeholders and elders forum signed by Dr. Umar Ardo, the party said the duo of Atiku and the state governor, Murtala Nyako, who had also defected to the APC, lacked the political weight to displace the party at any given time in history.

The terse statement made available to journalists noted that “Given the dynamics of Adamawa state politics, today and in the foreseeable future, the convergence of Nyako and Atiku in the APC cannot upstage the strong support base of the PDP in the state.

“I can confidently say on behalf of the Adamawa State PDP stakeholders and elders forum that the PDP in Adamawa is not at all intimidated by the defection of the former Vice President to the APC. As far as we are concerned, in this state, PDP dey kampe!”

  1. you need to be because Atiku is a political heavy weight not only in Adamawa state but in Nigeria and the whole of Africa, so his defection to the opposition should be a cause of worry for both the Adamawa PDP and National PDP.

  3. Atiku’s Problems Continue (APC) in APC!

    5 REASON WHY APC DOES NOT NEED ATIKU

    It is rather unfortunate that APC has become
    a dumping ground for Nigeria’sfailing
    politicians. Since the merger, many politicians
    who have one way the other lost their place in
    the People’s Democratic Party have made All
    Progressive Alliance their haven. Why blame
    them when the leaders of APC do not know
    that a progressive party is not a home for
    wounded Lions.

    Yes one could say APC needs all the power
    brokers it can get but you also need to
    consider the fact that it doesn’t need members
    who are trouble-making champions.
    Today, 2 nd of February, 2014, former Vice
    President, Atiku Abubakar, officially
    announced on Twitter that he has decamped
    to APC. On his website, he penned down his
    grievances with PDP. He said he is angry with
    the party for relegating him to the background
    because he dared to contest at the primaries.
    The Tinubu/Buhari led APC does not need
    men like Atiku and here are my reasons:

    UNTRUSTWORTHY:

    Atiku has shown he is a man you can’t trust.
    He has never been a party man. Atiku looks
    out for that which butters his bread. Atiku left
    PDP to Action Congress because his bread
    can no longer be buttered in PDP, fought the
    party that made him VP, called the party
    unprintable names and didn’t have the shame
    to go back to same party. It is madness to
    trust such a man? That means you can’t trust
    that he will keep your agreement with him
    when the chips are down.

    DISLOYALTY:

    Atiku does not believe in loyalty! His actions
    have proven that he camps where his interest
    is protected. So joining the APC is not
    because he wants to join hands to actualize
    the party’s dream to give Nigerians a better
    democratic experience but to pursue his
    presidential dreams. Atiku has moved back
    and forth from the PDP just because of his
    presidential ambition. His ambition has so
    obsessed him that he cannot be loyal to the
    party’s decision if it doesn’t favour his dream
    of ruling Nigeria.

    SELFISHNESS:

    The worst is that his pursuit is purely selfish!
    So far he has not been able to articulate ideas
    that can take us to the Nigeria of our dreams.
    Just because your party no longer consults
    you then you leave the party? That means it is
    all about you not the collective dream of the
    party for the country. Tomorrow if APC does
    not consult you, you will decamp too. APC
    does not need a selfish and over ambitious
    person like Atiku, especially at this formative
    stage.
    PARTY PROSTITUTE:
    A woman who easily sleeps with any kind of
    man for money is nothing but a prostitute
    likewise a politician who has decamped from
    PDP to two other parties without considering
    party philosophy and ethos. Atiku is political
    party prostitute personified! He is the role
    model for party prostitutes. That is his legacy!

    TOO MUCH CAPTAINS IN ONE SHIP :

    An army cannot win a war if there are many
    Generals commanding it. The addition of other
    aggrieved PDP Governors and Atiku into the
    APC political clan is fast turning the party into
    a group of rebels and if care is not taken, it
    will be hard to have a single leader! This is a
    party with political and tribal juggernauts like
    General M. Buhari and Bola Tinubu who
    grapevines still insist have presidential
    ambitions. Throwing in an Atiku into the mix
    is another way of spelling disaster! Time will
    tell if Atiku can drop his ambition for Buhari
    or any other northerner.

    In summary, I think APC is already a moving
    train that is fast gathering momentum and
    should not allow confused people on board!
