PDP has been expecting Atiku's return - Makarfi

Mrs Onochie said this on Sunday in Abuja during her appearance on the weekend edition of Channels Television's political programme.

The former vice-president, who had resigned from the APC in November, said he joined the ruling party hoping it will be the "new force that will help improve life for our people".

"We hereby make it resoundingly clear that what the former Vice President said only exists in the realm of his imagination". More so, considering that Buhari has the power of incumbency, which plays a vital role in Nigerian politics, as well as the fact that the APC has a strong hold in the South West, PDP would have to do a lot of work to regain its strength to give him a run for his money.

Onochie, in her response, faulted the claims that the Federal Government has failed the people, saying the APC was trying to fix the mistakes of the previous administrations.

Though, Atiku had explained that he made attempts to go to the United States of America but was not issued visa on administrative grounds, Adesina insinuated he was merely prevaricating to hide the truth. 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. He did not indicate on Sunday whether he would try to become the opposition People's Democratic Party's (PDP's) presidential candidate.

"This fiction being passed off as truth is mind-boggling, coming from a former Vice President of Nigeria, who should know the truth".

He said the complaints he had with the PDP under which he was vice president from 1999 to 2007, had been resolved, laying the groundwork for his return. Again, we want to use this opportunity to call on all our members that are still in the APC or other parties to return home.
