Former Nigeria Vice President and chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar has made it clear that he would not leave APC for any other political party not even in a dream. He said that he is committed to the success of the party’s Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of the party in the 2015 general elections.
In a statement today reacting to reports in a section of the media of his purported return to the fold of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku said that he would never leave APC for any reason.
“I remain irrevocably committed to the APC, as I promised in my concession speech at the conclusion of our party’s presidential primaries, and has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the victory of General Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of our great party at the general elections.”
Atiku said that his purported return to the PDP or any other party is the handiwork of mischief makers focused on pitching him against other leaders of the opposition APC.
Atiku Abubakar said that for the avoidance of doubt, he is unequivocally committed to the unity of APC and that it will take more than the antics of mischief makers to break that bond.
He said that his return from Adamawa, where he convened a stakeholders’ meeting and reconciled disagreeing camps within the party, towards ensuring victory for the APC bears eloquent testimony of this commitment.
The former Vice President said that he is currently supporting the financial operations of the APC in many states, in most cases as a sole financier.
“I have backed my words and commitment with my resources to ensure that I bring my influence and support to bear on our party’s march to victory at all levels in the general election. That should be enough to shut up mischief makers bent on derailing the APC’s success at the March 28 and April elections,” he said.
Atiku said however that as one of Nigeria’s astute politicians and businessmen, there may be overtures from across political divides him, but restated that he has publicly made his commitment to the APC clear even as he privately rebuffed the approaches from all quarters. [myad]
