2019 Battle Begins: Atiku storms PDP secretariat in Abuja

Bad News for Atiku as PDP Bans Campaign for Presidential Ticket During Convention

Speaking during a visit to the leadership of the party at its national Secretariat in Abuja, Atiku described PDP as the only party in Nigeria.

We believe his return will add value to the process of rebuilding our party to greater heights.

Atiku resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress about a week ago, claiming that the ruling party had deviated from its promises to Nigeria.

He recalled that PDP was founded on the principles of democracy, good governance, unity of the country and the prosperity of its people but regretted that it has faced some challenges.

"For any political party to survive as well as remain relevant there must be discipline and internal democracy that will give hope to aspirations of party members".

"This is another milestone recorded by the current leadership of our party in its quest to reconcile, rebuild and restructure the PDP ahead of the 2019 general elections and beyond".

"It is true. We are expecting him on Tuesday, which is tomorrow (today)".

He assured that they did PDP would be a reformed party that would give everybody level playing field.

Bliemeister said there has not been positive confirmation yet that it is Loofe's body, but there is a "strong belief" it is. The FBI, Lincoln police and various county sheriff's offices involved in the search all declined to comment Monday night.

He said Atiku returned in good time and urged him to continue to contribute in reinventing, remodeling of the party.

"You will also help us reinvent the vehicle that will take us to Aso rock in 2019".

"We are not just targeting Aso Rock, we are targeting the federal legislature, the states, both executive and legislature".

Abubakar made the appeal during his first appearance at the party's National Secretariat, Abuja, with a crowd of supporters, three days after declaring his return to the party.

"We want to sweep elections all across the party".

"Not only me, but some other serving governors, members of the National Assembly and other known party leaders across the country have to decide their political future elsewhere".

He subsequently went upstairs to the office of the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee (NCC), of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, for a meeting before returning to NEC Hall for the courtesy call.
