'Atiku return to PDP an indication that APC has failed to deliver …'

Why Atiku may not vote at PDP convention Atiku's return adds value to rebuilding party – PDP
Ben Pena | 05 December, 2017, 17:32

Atiku left the PDP in 2014 to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) where he contested for the party's presidential ticket with President Muhammadu Buhari and others.

Chairman of PDP national caretaker committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, who made this known while inaugurating the convention planning committee in Abuja, yesterday said that the party is committed to adhering strictly to its rules for the convention.

In a statement issued by Mr. Dayo Adeyeye, National Publicity Secretary of its National Caretaker Committee, the party described the return of Abubakar as "welcome development".

"PDP is the only party in this country. Atiku never asked; we conceded nothing to him and we never gave him anything".

"The party is out to establish a level playing field to enable party men and women exercise their rights and to give mandates to whomever they want to give mandates to", he said.

He expressed satisfaction with Tuesday's judgement of the Court of Appeal, sitting in Ado Ekiti, which nullified the judgement of a High Court that would have affected the conduct of the December 9 national convention.

He is now meeting members of the National Caretaker Committe of the party led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi.

Makarfi urged all contestants to go about their campaign with decorum.

"Anyone who is desirous of a return to the era of abundance and freedom under the PDP administration is welcome. We are actually expecting him by noon tomorrow", he added.

In his remarks, the chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Walid Jibrin, said everybody was ready to collaborate with the planning committee to ensure the success of the convention and to see that it is conducted in a free and fair manner.

He urged the party members to "run away" from act that may negatively affect the convention.

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. What we want are people who can help us win elections and Atiku is one of them.

Noting that the region has not occupied the position in the party's history, Kano stressed that the Northern elders didn't micro-zone the position, as it was the decision of the party members from the South to make.
