A former Vice President of the country, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as the nation’s biggest problem.
Atiku stated that on Sunday when he received defectors from the ruling APC to the major opposition party,, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking at a reception for the new PDP members in the state capital, Yola, Atiku said Nigeria made a mistake putting the APC in power in 2015, adding that Nigerians still have the chance to remove the party come 2023.
Atiku said, “We have done a big mistake before by floating a party called APC. But from today, I’m calling on you Adamawa people to leave your parties and join PDP because it is the future and the masses party.
”It was PDP that gave back life to Adamawa State after it was slain by the APC and usher it to its present state of development.
“Our schools are now better and our health institutions are in superb shape. I pray that this event will mark the beginning of the internment of the party (APC).”
During the reception at the famous Ribadu Square in Yola, prominent members of APC, including former Secretary to Adamawa State Government, Kobis Ari Thimnu, Chief Daniel Bwala, Sali Bodes, Umar Bello Calculate, Nedo Geoprey and Philip Gutuwa were received by Atiku and Governor Ahmadu Fintiri.
