PDP Is Beyond Redemption - Atiku
A former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party.
Abubakar said his resignation letter would be delivered to the PDP on Monday (today).
He also said, in a statement he personally signed, that he was joining the opposition political party, the All Progressives Congress.
The statement came after the nationwide consultation that the former Vice-President embarked on in the last few weeks.
The consultation was as a result of the visit of the APC leaders to his Abuja residence on December 18, 2013. The APC leaders had asked him to ditch the ruling party.Add a comment

Elrufai Caught in Fraud-Circulates Fake IBB Statement Reprimanding Jonathan
Controversial former minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Malam Nasir Elrufai, who was just released on bail by the SSS, has been caught in a fraud.
After his release, Elrufai circulated a statement purportedly by former military President, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, in which the former president allegedly rebuked incumbent president Goodluck Jonathan for the SSS' action of arresting Elrufai. However, it has turned out that that statement is a fraud as Babangida never issued any such statement. Rather, Elrufai had cleverly taken a statement issued by Babangida on July 3rd of 2011 and recycled it as if the former president issued it yesterday.
