2019: Atiku, Jonathan meet, strategise ahead polls

Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, may well be on the verge of dumping the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after he met with former President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

According to reports, the meeting was held at the instance of Atiku, who is reportedly considering offers from PDP chieftains to return to the party.

At the meeting, Jonathan reportedly advised Atiku to consider returning to the PDP early enough, as he has to be a member for a period of time before he could be eligible to vie for a political office.

“Atiku was advised to return early to enable him to fulfill the eligibility condition in the party’s constitution and also have ample time to integrate his political structure into the PDP’s,” reports quoted an unnamed source.

The source added that it was made clear to Atiku that he stood a better chance to realise his ambition in the PDP than the APC, since President Muhammadu Buhari looked set to be given a right of first refusal by his party’s leadership.
