No APC governor is leaving the party with Atiku - El-Rufai

No APC governor is leaving the party with Atiku - El-Rufai

The PDP, however, said it would gladly welcome the former presidential candidate if he decides to return to the party, although Atiku said he wanted to take his time before taking the next step.

Atiku, who announced his resignation from the APC after joining the party in February 2014, accused the party of failing to spearhead the rebirth of a new Nigeria as it had promised.

Addressing a gathering on Friday in Abuja, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, said the doors are opened for the former vice president to return home.

Nigeria's former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday quit the country's ruling party, in a clear sign he wants to challenge Muhammadu Buhari for the presidency in 2019.

He further described Atiku as "a serial defector".

"That I am sure of".

Atiku also hinged his resignation on fractionalisation of the APC, resulting from "arbitrariness and unconstitutionality" over the years.

"The only governor that he would think will go with him, the governor of Adamawa State has already endorsed President Buhari for the 2019 elections".

"Politics is about interest, we have not seen any formal notification to that effect but base on what we have seen in the social media we can say all together is surprising but for us politics is all about interest", he said.

"For us, politics is all about interest, so, if the former Vice President feels that his interest is better served elsewhere, we don't have any issues with that". For us, the task of building a political party is not a day's job; it is a marathon.

"We can always wish him good luck".

"The party we put in place has failed and continues to fail our people, especially our young people; how can we have a federal cabinet without even one single youth".
