Atiku Decamps From APC, Says ‘Party Has Failed’
Former Vice-President and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar, has officially decamped from the party citing the continued failure of the party to deliver on its promises.
In a statement issued on Friday, Atiku said the absence of young people in the federal cabinet is a testament to the failure of the APC.
He said : “A party that does not take the youth into account is a dying party. The future belongs to young people.
“I admit that I and others who accepted the invitation to join the APC were eager to make positive changes for our country that we fell for a mirage. Can you blame us for wanting to put a speedy end to the sufferings of the masses of our people?
“Be that as it may be, after due consultation with my God, my family, my supporters and the Nigerian people whom I meet in all walks of life, I, Atiku Abubakar, Waziri Adamawa, hereby tender my resignation from the All Progressives Congress while I take time to ponder my future.”
