He took to Twitter on Monday, November 16 to make this call.
”The Peoples Democratic Party is the best friend Nigeria could have. All geopolitical zones deserve a political party that believes in Nigeria and not a party that believes otherwise.
“The @OfficialPDPNig has much to offer all parts of Nigeria, and I urge all Nigerians in all zones to keep faith with a party that has kept faith with Nigeria and will be equitable to all.”
Meanwhile, thousands of nigerians have reacted to Atiku’s statement. Although some of them are in support of the cause. Majority have blasted him for his statement. Most of them have also said that the People’s Democratic Party and the All Progressives Party which are the two major parties in Nigeria are two sides of the same coin.
