Atiku Abubakar

Ex Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, described his party as Nigeria’s best friend.

Atiku Abubakar made the point, while maintaining that all the geographical zones in the country are properly reflected in  PDP.

The former Vice President stated this in a post on his Facebook page.

He also assured Nigerians that the former ruling party has a lot to offer the country.

Against this backdrop, Atiku urged Nigerians to keep faith with PDP.

He wrote: “The Peoples Democratic Party is the best friend Nigeria could have.

“All geopolitical zones deserve a political party that believes in Nigeria and not a party that believes otherwise.

“The PDP has much to offer all parts of Nigeria, and I urge all Nigerians in all zones to keep faith with a party that has kept faith with Nigeria and will be equitable to all.”

Atiku’s remark comes at a time Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi defected from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Umahi had hinged his defection to APC on PDP’s marginalization of the Southeast.
