Why I am returning to PDP - Ex-VP Atiku Abubakar

Buhari Was Never Banned From Any Country, Presidency Replies Atiku

In a statement issued Sunday by its national publicity secretary Dayo Adeyeye, the PDP also welcomed the former vice president who rejoined the party a few days after he left the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The post Atiku's return has exposed lies, deceit of APC - PDP appeared first on Vanguard News.

"But rather than giving a long political speech on this matter, I thought it would be more helpful to invite you to ask me questions and share with you my answers". He however said that this has not come to be as nearly 3 million Nigerians have lost their job in the last one year. When I was Vice President in 1999 I was responsible for liberalising the telecomms sector which enabled us to increase the number of people who could access a phone from less than 1 million then to over 100 million today.

But Lalong told newsmen on Sunday in Jos that he would not leave the APC.

He said that the move had rekindled hope not only for the party, but the nation's democracy.

According to the party, his assertions about happenings within the APC would have carried more weight if he was still a member.

The Lions called the Silverdome home from 1975-2001 and the building sat largely vacant in the 16 years since they've moved out. The first series of explosions at the Pontiac Silverdome were set for Sunday, according to WDIV.

"We will continue to remain transparent and dedicated to the service of this party", the statement said.

The Presidency has faulted claims by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar that President Muhammadu Buhari was denied entry into the United States for about 15 years on account of religious considerations.

President Buhari is at present in Jordan to compare notes with other world leaders on the war against terrorism.

Nigeria's former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Sunday announced his return to the opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP), barely two weeks after resigning from the ruling party.

Some analysts argue that if the possibility of the President contesting the election in 2019 is anything to go by, he would be the man to beat.

Makarfi also said in the interview that Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose's declaration of interest in the party's presidential ticket, "is uncalled for and unhealthy".
