Atiku’s supporters switch to the APC in 2023, claiming the PDP candidate has poor interpersonal skills

Thousands of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s supporters left the Peoples Democratic Party PDP to join the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, claiming the PDP candidate lacked good interpersonal skills.

The supporters were welcomed by Salihu Moh. Lukman, the APC National Vice Chairman for the North-West, and Bello Matawalle, the governor of Zamfara state, who also served as the Presidential Campaign Council’s Zonal Coordinator for the North-West.

Malam Musa Mailafiya Mada, the APC North-West’s publicity secretary, and Mohammed Lawal Shehu, the council’s northwest spokesperson, both confirmed the development.

They claim that on November 25, 2022, Governor Matawalle and Mallam Lukman met with the PDP and Atiku support groups for several hours.

“These are groups who were committed to support the PDP and Alh. Atiku Abubakar to win the 2023 Presidential elections but were not given the deserved recognition by both the PDP and Alh. Atiku Abubakar”, both men said in a joint statement.

Atiku Support Organization, PDP Transformation Ambassadors, Atiku Abubakar Kawai, PDP Mobilizers Initiative, Kasa Daya Al’umma Daya, Atiku/Okowa Frontiers Movement, G7 Business Community, Katsina Biyayya Forum, Atiku Women and Youth Initiative, and Atiku Nigeria Transformation Ambassadors are among the organizations.

The organizations were said to have made significant investments in the Atiku project starting in 2015, but they noted that the strained relations with the PDP and Alh. Atiku Abubakar forced them to abandon the PDP and its presidential candidate in favor of the APC and its nominee, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Governor Bello Matawalle welcomed the groups to the APC and undertook to facilitate their full integration into the APC and Asiwaju/Kashim Presidential Campaign.

“He emphasised that APC is the only party that uphold to the principles of power rotation, saying the highest justice to be done to the people of the South is to be able to shift power to their region so that justice and equality can be ensured.

“He urged them to uphold the commitment they have exhibited over the years for the victory of the APC and all its candidates at all levels. He told the defectors that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, APC Presidential candidate has mapped out strategic development plans that would help consolidate the existing reforms under President Muhammad Buhari”, the statement added.
