Battle Begins: Atiku storms PDP secretariat in Abuja

Battle Begins: Atiku storms PDP secretariat in Abuja

Abubakar, who was accompanied by some party members including Ben Murray Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa east, and some party supporters, was received by Ahmed Makarfi, chairman of the PDP caretaker committee and other party leaders.

Speaking at the meeting with party leaders, the former vice president urged defectors to return to rebuild the former ruling party.

Atiku pledged his support and cooperation to the leadership in their effort to move the party forward.

"Nigerians will remember that I predicted what is happening and I am still saying that if this party continues in this direction, an end will come to it so soon".

‎He congratulated Makarfi and his team "for a wonderful work which you have been doing to redeem the image of this party, to return it, rebrand it and return it to its original form".

He recalled that PDP was founded on the principles of democracy, good governance, unity of the country and the prosperity of its people but regretted that it has faced some challenges.

"Now that we have learnt our lessons, I hope that we will be guided by the lessons we have learnt".

"The type of national executive elected by PDP on Saturday will make or mar the party's progress and its ambition to reclaim power at the centre in 2019".

Kansas gas prices continue downward spiral
Lower demand because of the cooler weather and a cheaper winter blend of gasoline has finally brought relief to consumers. Gas prices in Georgia have declined 20 of the past 21 days, for an average total discount of 7 cents.

"To achieve all these, there must be sacrifices, understanding, and compromises in the process of achieving that".

He said that one thing he would never compromise was the internal democracy process in a political party.

"I advise delegates to place the interest of the party first as that will help the party to enthrone dedicated, transparent and focused leadership".

"We will continue to remain transparent and dedicated to the service of this party", the statement said. "We are actually expecting him by noon tomorrow", he said.

‎"So PDP must be prepared for this, and be ready to reconcile and reiterate in such a way and manner that everybody will be treated and given a level playing field to purse his or her personal aspiration. That is what PDP must stand for if it has to survive". It would be childish for anybody to think we would go against him. We might have got it wrong, but we'll sure right all the wrongs this time, ' Atiku said amidst cheers from the crowd. We will continue to consult you. We are not just targeting Aso Rock, we are targeting the federal legislature, the state both the executive and legislature.

"But, here we are today, people are moving from the ruling party to the party in opposition".

Although the state governor, Jibrilla Bindow has avowed his stay in the APC following Atiku's exit, it is believed that more than half of his cabinet members would dumped the party before 2019.

The APC national chairman further assured that Atiku's exit from the party would not lead to massive defection from APC as being insinuated in some quarters in the country.
