Former VicePresident Atiku Resigns From APC And States His Reasons!

Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has resigned from the All Progressives Congress.
Abubakar confirmed this in a statement he personally signed on Friday.
He also gave reasons for quitting the party.

However, he did not state which party he intends to join, but said he is pondering on his political future.

The statement, titled: “Statement of resignation of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar (Waziri Adamawa) Vice President of Nigeria, 1999-2007 from the All Progressives Congress,” reads in full…

“On the 19th of December, 2013, I received members of the All Progressives Congress at my house in Abuja. They had come to appeal to me to join their party after my party, the Peoples Democratic Party, had become factionalized as a result of the special convention of August 31, 2013.

“The fractionalization of the Peoples Democratic Party on August 31, 2013 had left me in a situation where I was, with several other loyal party members, in limbo, not knowing which of the parallel executives of the party was the legitimate leadership.

“It was under this cloud that members of the APC made the appeal to me to join their party, with the promise that the injustices and failure to abide by its own constitution which had dogged the then PDP, would not be replicated in the APC and with the assurance that the vision other founding fathers and I had for the PDP could be actualized through the All Progressives Congress.

“It was on the basis of this invitation and the assurances made to me that I, being party-less at that time, due to the fractionalization of my party, accepted on February 2, 2014, the hand of fellowship given to me by the All Progressives Congress.

“On that day, I said “it is the struggle for democracy and constitutionalism and service to my country and my people that are driving my choice and my decision” to accept the invitation to join the All Progressives Congress.
“Like you, I said that because I believed that we had finally seen the beginnings of the rebirth of the new Nigeria of our dreams which would work for all of us, old and young.

“However, events of the intervening years have shown that like any other human and like many other Nigerians, I was fallible.

“While other parties have purged themselves of the arbitrariness and unconstitutionality that led to fractionalization, the All Progressives Congress has adopted those same practices and even gone beyond them to institute a regime of a draconian clampdown on all forms of democracy within the party and the government it produced.

“Only last year, a governor produced by the party wrote a secret memorandum to the president which ended up being leaked. In that memo, he admitted that the All Progressives Congress had ‘not only failed to manage expectations of a populace that expected overnight ‘change’ but has failed to deliver even mundane matters of governance’.

“Of the party itself, that same governor said ‘Mr. President, Sir Your relationship with the national leadership of the party, both the formal (NWC) and informal (Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso), and former Governors of ANPP, PDP (that joined us) and ACN, is perceived by most observers to be at best frosty. Many of them are aggrieved due to what they consider total absence of consultations with them on your part and those you have assigned such duties.

“Since that memorandum was written up until today, nothing has been done to reverse the treatment meted out to those of us invited to join the All Progressives Congress on the strength of a promise that has proven to be false. If anything, those behaviours have actually worsened.

“But more importantly, the party we put in place has failed and continues to fail our people, especially our young people. How can we have a federal cabinet without even one single youth.

“A party that does not take the youth into account is a dying party. The future belongs to young people.

“I admit that I and others who accepted the invitation to join the APC were eager to make positive changes for our country that we fell for a mirage. Can you blame us for wanting to put a speedy end to the sufferings of the masses of our people?

“Be that as it may be, 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 while I take time to ponder my future.

“May God bless you and may God bless Nigeria”.

  3. Another word synonymous with Prostitute is Atiku...

    e.g. There are so many Nigerian Atikus in Italy...

  4. He will still join PDP and then bamboozle thesr gullible Nigerians. Donate a few roads, industries to the East and become the one you all want. And again those who believe this country is theirs to feed off will continue to rule. If he really wants to do magic, he will join APGA. These men...interesting.

  5. This old idiot. Political prostitute. Desperado like him spewing rubbish. I have never seen a person so desperate to rule this country like Atiku. Block head like your fellow Northern Buhari. Empty headed manipulate rat. His leaving the party because everyone has come out to endorse buhari and it means he has no chances of being the president not because you love the youth and want an all inclusive government so stop lying i beg.

  6. There is no Nigerian politicians that is not desperate maybe Jonathan cos he is not a real politician. As for Atiku, in as much as you are not a saint and has no interest of the masses at heart, I will vote you over and over again against this incompetent, clueless Apc. Anything for buhari to be sent back to daura

    1. Soery to burst your bubble, no vacancy in aso rock.

  7. I still prefer Atiku to Buhari 1000 times. I read one of his interviews in punch newspaper, he seem to have good plan ahead when he becomes president by God's grace.....
    All these people calling him names should leave the man to be great abeg....

    1. Sholetoga people like you make me sick. He is still better than Buhari but does that make him good for Nigeria. What rubbish plan does he have for Nigeria the same old people looting the economy dry. Yet you talk rubbish. How can we leave him alone. Let him go and sell his idea of good governance to his brother and fellow party mate nau. He thinks Nigeria is his property. Trickster thought he would take over from Buhari. Ode

  8. Oga do whatever you like, you can't become the president of this country called Nigeria. It's as simple as that.

  9. Dis one na heavy political jumpologist! He should just kwatinue until he jumps to his doom!mscheeeew!d guy has no scruples at all
