Atiku reveals what he told Buhari before dumping APC

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has said he warned President Muhammadu he would quit the All Progressives Congress (APC), if the party was not restructured.

In an interview with BBC Hausa on Saturday, Atiku claimed Buhari failed to heed his warning or take his advice.

“The APC started on a wrong footing after President Buhari assumed office.

“After 2015 general elections, I met the president and told him the activities of the party had been crippled and there was a necessity for restructuring.

“Also, the way the federal government was being run; I made my suggestions but it seemed they were deemed not important to them. I said to him, if issues continued like this, I’ll quit but Buhari ignored it,” he mentioned.

Abubakar decamped from the ruling party last November and returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where he served as the nation’s number two citizen for eight years.
