Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar on Tuesday has Abuja denied reports that he was planning to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM).
“Our attention has been drawn to a recent publication which alleges that APC chieftain and presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar, intends to dump the opposition party APC for the 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 ambition of another aspirant within the party,” a statement signed by Malam Garba Shehu, Atiku’s Head of Media said.
The APC member was also said to be “working with certain elements in the PDP.”
The statement therefore reiterated Atiku’s resolve to remain with the APC, saying any contrary report is false.
“Atiku Abubakar does not intend to leave the APC for the PDM or any other party. He believes in the change message of the APC.
He believes that APC is progress,” the statement added.
