We've been expecting Atiku's return to PDP -Makarfi

Nigeria’s broken politics

Nigeria’s broken politics

As events ahead of the 2019 Presidential elections unfold, President Muhammadu Buhari is in the news in what appears to be his subtle way of announcing his re-election bid.

The Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee (NCC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has welcomed the return of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to the party.

"So today, I want to let you know that I am returning home to the PDP, as the issues that led me to leave it have now been resolved and it is clear that the APC has let the Nigerian people and especially, the young people down".

"We are equally extending our invitation to all those in the APC who are frustrated by the party's failure to deliver the goods", Mr. Adeyeye said.

Mr. Abubakar took to facebook to announce that he is joining the PDP after resigning from the governing All Progressives Congress, APC, last week. People are in APC for different reasons.

Reacting to a question sent in by one of his followers about the call to scrap the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) curated with the hashtag #EndSARS, Atiku expressed confidence in the police force and added he was certain the issues of indiscipline within SARS would be addressed within a short time.

"I think Alhaji Abubakar Atiku has lost touch with reality; I think he needs to check again".

He said that the move had rekindled hope not only for the party, but the nation's democracy.

"Alhaji Atiku is known to hobnob from one party to the other when he can not have the control of the party".

Earlier, from 1999-2007 he was vice president for the center-right PDP.
