Ex-Nigerian veep quits ruling party citing govt 'failure' Atiku is a serial defector -El-Rufai

Former Governor of Abia State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Orji Uzor Kalu, has advise former ruling party, PDP, to stop boasting that it would "bounce back" in 2019.

On PDP chances of bouncing back, he said the worldwide community was outraged by the massive looting of the nation's treasury by PDP, that it would amount to the greatest disservice to call for the return of PDP.

"After due consultation with my God, my family, my supporters and the Nigerian people whom I meet in all walks of life, I, Atiku Abubakar, Waziri Adamawa, hereby tender my resignation from the All Progressives Congress", Atiku said in the statement announcing his resignation from the APC.

The former vice president's departure is one of the first major fractures to emerge publicly in Buhari's APC, formed from a coalition of smaller parties to contest the 2015 election against then-president Goodluck Jonathan.

"That I am sure of".

"I have said it times without number, that the president needs to consolidate on his achievements because he is very popular".

El-Rufai also said, "Atiku is not and has never been a threat to Buhari".

The PDP national publicity secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, told newsmen at a press conference yesterday in Abuja that the plot was aimed at creating division and rubbishing the party.

He said Abubakar was deceived into believing that the APC was a platform that would correct all the ills in the PDP. "So if he is joining the PDP at the end of the day, it will be a plus for us", he said.

"For us, politics is all about interest, so, if the former Vice President feels that his interest is better served elsewhere, we don't have any issues with that".
