Atiku Abubakar, a presidential hopeful in 2019, has announced he is re-joining the Peoples Democratic Party, which he left about four years to join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC. I want to let you know that I returning home to the PDP as the issues that led me to leave it have now been resolved as it is clear the APC has led the Nigerian people down.
Prior to saying he is returning to his former party, Atiku had said, Some of you may know that I was elected vice president under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party, which is a political party I have helped to found ten years before. Some of you may also know that I left the PDP four years ago when I believe it was no longer aligning to the principles of equity, democracy and social justice upon which we found it. I joined the APC as I hoped it would be new force that would help improve life for our people. I was excited about the partys manifesto to create three million jobs a year. The result has not been the change promised or voted for. The former vice-president of Nigeria (Atiku) made known his political re-alignment during a live Facebook announcement on Sunday.
He harped on his being an entrepreneur and ability to create more jobs, taking personal credit for bringing to the country GSM telephony and attendant jobs provided. Atiku also seemed to have made the youth and job creation his selling point.
