PDP is bereft of ideas- Atiku


In a press statement in Abuja today, he described the PDP as bereft of ideas and refusing to live up to the promises it made in the past.

He said his decision was the right one, recalling that in 2006, he and his supporters were pushed out of a party they had worked tirelessly with other compatriots to build as a vehicle to restore democracy to Nigeria.

 “We later returned to that party in 2009 when a new leadership of the party and the country promised a new direction, a direction of inclusiveness, of internal democracy, of an end to impunity, adherence to the rule of law and respect for the dignity of members and Nigerians,” he said, regretting that those promises were not kept and that the PDP continues to be beset with mostly leadership-induced crises.

According to him, as in 2006 it is the struggle for democracy and constitutionalism and service to Nigeria and her people that have driven his choice and decision.

 “This country has done so much for me personally and it deserves all that we can do to help rebuild it and serve our people better, he said.

 He described the APC as a party of change committed to the improvement of the lives of the people of Nigeria and to the continued existence and development of Nigeria as one indivisible country.
