PDP Has Derailed From What We Intended For It – Atiku

Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, one of
the founding members of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) said the party has
derailed and it is now working for itself.

Atiku, a presidential aspirant under the All
Progressives Congress (APC), stated this on
Friday in Calabar, Cross River State, when he
visited APC delegates in the state to solicit their
support ahead of the party’s primaries.

“I know PDP more than any one of them,” he
said. PDP of today was not the PDP we formed.
It has derailed and it is now working for its
own interest instead of the interest of the
larger society.”

He also gave reasons for the
underdevelopment in the Niger Delta region,
saying, “The reasons the policies of the Niger
Delta are not working are because those
implementing the policies of the region are not
the originators.

“I developed the blueprint for Niger Delta
which contained the amnesty programme,
creation of Ministry of Niger Delta and master
plan for the development of the Niger Delta, so
I know the region very well because I had
employed more than 25,0000 people,” he
added.

Atiku also urged the APC in Cross River to work
together as one, as this would guarantee them
victory at the polls in 2015.

He promised to support whoever gets the
party’s presidential ticket, should he fail to win
the primaries.

“There will be no anti-party issue among us
because we have agreed. I will give my full
backing to any one of us who gets the ticket,”
he said.

Atiku also boasted that all the presidential
aspirants on the platform of the APC are better
and more credible than President Goodluck
Jonathan.
