Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President, said he is returning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Atiku who resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) less than two weeks ago, made this known in a video posted on Facebook on Sunday afternoon.
“From today, I want to let you know that I am returning home to the PDP as the issue that led me to leave it has now been resolved,” he said in the video.
“APC had led people, especially our youths down and that rather than giving a wrong political speech on this matter, I thought it would be helpful to invite Nigerians to ask me questions on the issues.”
Abubakar served two terms as Vice President under the platform of the PDP but left the party after ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo blocked his presidential bid.
He had contested the 2007 Presidential election under the then Action Congress (AC), placing third after the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, who got PDP ticket and Muhammadu Buhari of the then All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP).
Atiku told the publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu in an interview that he will defeat President Mohammadu Buhari in the 2019 Presidential election.
