Former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on Monday addressed a rally of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
Speaking at the rally, Atiku stated that his decision to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was as a result of the obvious loss of direction of the PDP leadership. The former vice president who addressed the rally in Hausa language insisted that there will be change in 2015.
He stated that the PDP no longer has the ability to move the nation forward hence he has decided to join the APC where he will be able to contribute substantially to the change that the party is set to champion in 2015.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar announced his resignation from the PDP on Sunday 2nd February 2014.
Present at the rally was the Adamawa State Governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako; APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande; Former Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff; Former National Chairman of the PDP, Chief Audu Ogbe; Former Chairman Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu; Former Military administrator of Lagos state, Alhaji Buba Marwa and other APC chieftains in the state.
Alhaji Marwa stated that the crisis in the Adamawa State Chapter of the APC has since been resolved and Kobis Thimnu emerged as interim state chairman of the party.
Marwa urged the people of Adamawa to show solidarity and support for the party by ensuring that they not only register as members of the party come February 5th 2014, but also endeavor to convince family members and friends to do same.
Other speakers present urged the people of Adamawa to emulate the former Vice President by pitching camps with the APC whose number one agenda if voted into office in 2015 will be to tackle youth unemployment and completely eradicate poverty from the nation.
