Atiku In Closed Door Meeting With Makarfi


According to Makarfi, "PDP did not extend any special concession to Atiku and the party will not extend any special concession to any other person".

FORMER Vice President Atiku Abubakar made what looks like a triumphant return to the People's Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday storming the Wadata Plaza Abuja national secretariat of the party with pomp and pageantry.

He added that the former vice president has to follow all the rules and regulations to win the ticket.

It is believed that Atiku's resignation from the ruling party was timed to coincide with the PDP convention where he is expected to seek the support of the party members towards his quest to be elected as the party's presidential candidate. "Atiku never asked; we conceded nothing to him and we never gave him anything".

He however assured that the party will give a level-playing field for party members to exercise their right to give their mandate to whoever they wish to give to. Please drop your comment! "We are actually expecting him by noon tomorrow", he added.

"Atiku, former Vice-President of the country and successful business mogul have imparted positively to many of his subordinates and, there is no doubt that many of his supporters to reposition PDP for the 2019 general elections in the country".

Just as the PDP was putting the finishing touches to its convention, its state chapter in Taraba consolidated its position in the state, when no fewer than 7,000 members of the APC defected to the party in Gassol Local Government Area at the weekend.

In his response, the chairman of the convention planning committee, Governor Okowa, assured that the "electoral process will be free, fair and credible".

Okowa, who spoke in Abuja shortly after the inauguration of the various convention committees, said no campaign of any kind would be allowed at the convention. So are all other PDP men and women are free to pursue whatever political aspirations they may have.

'There have been speculations in the media that I am returning home (the PDP) and I am so happy to be home now.

"As for me, I'm still a member of APC because I believe I have worked hard to bring about the ruling party as a young man but if the impunity does not stop, I will be left with no option".

The coordinator of the group, Hon Abdullahi Ali Kano, who was flanked by Hon Abbas Samuel Elejo (Director mobilization) and Hon Saleh Alhassan Tsiga (secretary), said the proposal for the chairmanship to go to the Southwest is in line with a tradition in the party for positions to be given to ensure inclusivity and equity.
