“This is devoid of truth” – Atiku Abubakar denies leaving PDP for new party



"This is devoid of truth" - Atiku Abubakar denies leaving PDP for new party

Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has refuted online rumors suggesting he will leave the party before the 2027 elections.

An assertion was made that Atiku and several other politicians were in the process of establishing a new party to contest against the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Bola Tinubu.

Atiku Abubakar, in a statement signed personally and shared on Tuesday through his account on the X platform, dismissed the reports as false and urged Nigerians to ignore them.

Former Vice President reaffirmed his allegiance to the PDP and criticized President Tinubu for prioritizing personal interests over governance.
The 2023 presidential candidate of the PDP stated that the claims of him leaving the party are false and the work of troublemakers.

He said: “I have been inundated with calls from our party members, supporters, and concerned Nigerians regarding the fabricated story in The Nation, Tinubu’s ragtag, alleging my departure from the @OfficialPDPNig.
“Let me be unequivocal: this is pure mischief, devoid of truth. I reaffirm my unwavering loyalty to the PDP while advocating the swift merger of opposition parties. The urgency of this consolidation cannot be overstated.
“Tinubu’s relentless pursuit of personal agendas at the expense of national governance is glaring. His myopic focus on 2027 betrays a disregard for the pressing needs of the populace. It’s high time he ceased his bumbling escapades and prioritised the welfare of the people.
“My media team is vigorously countering his baseless claims. Let this be a wake-up call to all: the pursuit of power must not overshadow the imperative of effective governance. Together, let us propel Nigeria forward, leaving behind the antics of political charlatans.”
