Atiku Abubakar rejoins PDP

Nigeria's former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, announced Sunday that he had rejoined the country's main opposition party, the latest sign he aims to run for the presidency in 2019.

The live broadcast which lasted for about 10 minutes the former VP who is aspiring to become the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria said is majorly targeted at the youths of Nigeria.

There was, however, a turnaround as the Presidency wondered why Atiku could not respond to the question as to why he had not visited America for over a decade.

"It is clear that the APC has let the Nigerian people, especially our young people, down".

Makarfi, who reportedly came close to being the PDP's presidential nominee in 2006, finally revealed how former President Olusegun Obasanjo schemed him out, even though an internal party assessment had returned him as the most favourable candidate.

She, however, said the present administration was working hard to provide good governance for the people but Nigerians can not expect President Buhari to fix the problems of over a decade in two years.

To put it in more simpler terms, the Substitute Phone , as they are called has a similar objective as fidget cubes and spinners. Schillinger while talking to Denzeen said that people are more and more getting addicted to their smartphones in daily lives.

As events ahead of the 2019 Presidential elections unfold, President Muhammadu Buhari is in the news in what appears to be his subtle way of announcing his re-election bid. I have thought of it.

Explaining his choice of the medium for the announcement, Atiku said, "I want to reach as many of our young people as possible". President Buhari is not competing with him at the moment, what he's trying to do is to put President Buhari out of the good work he's doing and to come to wallow in the mud with him.

Atiku resigned from the APC about two weeks ago and it was believed that he was headed for the PDP, the platform on which he was elected the vice president on Nigeria's return to democracy in 1999. There, he vied again for the top job but lost the primaries to President Goodluck Jonathan who succeeded President Yar'Adua.

The ex Vice President had said in an interview Saturday that the USA government refused Buhari entrying into the United States for his religious views.

The former vice president joined the APC in February 2014 and remained in the party until his exit on November 24, 2017.
