Atiku Visits PDP Headquarters, Holds Talks With Makarfi

BREAKING Atiku Dumps APC Says “Party Has Failed Nigerians”

Makarfi, who stated this at the inauguration of PDP National Convention Planning Committee, headed by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, ‎yesterday, in Abuja, said the ex-VP never asked for any concession from the caretaker committee prior to his return to the party on Sunday.

"I want to pay tribute to those who have stayed steadfast through thick and thin to see us through to this point".

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.

"Now that we have learned our lessons, I hope that we will be guided by the lessons we have learned".

He urged other defectors to return and help build the party.

"Nigerians should note one very interesting thing in the politics of Nigeria today; in the past, it used to be that people decamp or leave the party that has lost election or that is in opposition to the party that is ruling".

"The lack of internal democracy, disregard for the party's constitution, irregular schedule of meetings, inability to conduct a convention, the absence of a Board of Trustees and arrogance of the party leadership will bring about the impending doom", he declared.

Due to an internal party crisis he defected to the APC in the run-up to the 2015 presidential election before losing the party's ticket to another eventual victor, President Buhari.
