Former Vice- President, Atiku Abubakar, has debunked claims of his defection from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as an attempt to distract him from his focus of winning the presidential ticket of the party and in turn the presidential election next year.
In the statement obtained by Nigeria Happenings, Atiku disproved claim that he had defected from the PDP, which he rejoined last November, Atiku, through his campaign organisation, said: “For the avoidance of any doubts, Atiku remains the frontline aspirant for the Presidential ticket of the PDP.
“In the past two months, Atiku Abubakar has moved across states in the country consulting with stakeholders of the PDP and explaining to them his agenda encapsulated in the acronym JOBS: Jobs, Opportunity, Being united and Security) for Nigeria.
“The nationwide consultations continue this week with visits to the South-West, North-West and North-Central zones of the country.
“Atiku’s passion and commitment to winning the PDP primaries is without any compromise and to assume that he will abandon the hard work he has done with the positive results he is getting from the stakeholders of the party is to say the least preposterous and unthinkable.
“The campaign calls on supporters of Atiku to remain steadfast and see the contrived news of defection as an attempt to distract him from the set task of winning the PDP ticket and the 2019 presidential election by the grace of God.”
