Abuja （Sundiata Post）- Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu said the return of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is a massive vote of no confidence in the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ekweremadu who described Atiku’s return as a welcome development, not only for the party, added that it is also good for the nation’s democracy.
He made this known on Sunday in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu sent to Sundiata Post.
According to him, “the move represented a massive Vote of No Confidence in the leadership capacity of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, first, by the masses, and now by the cream of its hierarchy and founding members.”
He said: “The dumping of the APC by Alhaji Atiku is a welcome development for the PDP, but more importantly, Nigeria’s democracy.
“Nigeria is in dire need of a rescue mission to rekindle hope in our democracy, restore her on the path of prosperity, and halt the worsening divisiveness that threatens our corporate existence.
Ekweremadu therefore, enjoinef all former PDP faithful who left for various reasons as well as other progressive-minded Nigerians to emulate Alhaji Atiku, to reunite under the umbrella to salvage the nation because he see a new and better Nigeria coming in 2019.
“I see a country where corruption will be eradicated, a nation that will be a pride to Africa and admiration of the international community, and a nation where no man will be oppressed, intimidated, persecuted or sidelined on account of ethnicity, religion or political persuasion. No amount of desperation will stop the will of God for Nigeria in 2019.
