The Former Vice President and a current leader of the All progressives Congress, APC, Atiku Abubakar has given strong conditions under which he will return to his former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
According to Thisday report, one of the conditions enlisted by the former Vice President included an incontestable presidential ticket ahead of the 2019 General election.
Atiku was said to have stated this in a meeting with Former President Goodluck Jonathan, a bid by PDP to pose a great opposition for ruling All Progressive Congress in the coming election.
The meeting said to have been held at the instance of Atiku, who was said to be seriously considering offers made to him by a section of the leadership of the opposition party to return, which sources say, is to explore the desirability of the move and concluded that it would be a worthwhile political endeavour that could help terminate what both leading politicians regarded as the uninspiring rule of the APC.
“The former vice president was said to have insisted on some conditions to be met before he could dump the APC for the PDP.
“This included an assurance that he would get the party’s presidential without a contest”, Thisday quoted sources privy to the meeting.
