Jonathan Begged Me Three Times To Join PDP-Atiku


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has revealed how President Goodluck Jonathan pleaded with him three times to dump the All Progressives Congress, APC, and return to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Speaking in an interview with the Hausa service of the BBC, Atiku said the last was in Abuja last Friday when the President paid him a surprise midnight visit.

“In the evening I went to bed early, but at around 12 am, I was told the president was in my sitting room, so I came down and after exchanging pleasantries, I asked him to what I deserved such a visit and he said he just came back to still plead with me for support,” Atiku said.

“He said I need to go back to the PDP because we built the party and we are its founding fathers, and that we needed to go back and rebuild it.

“I told him this is the third time you are asking me to return to the PDP and my answer has always been the same; I am not going back”

On speculations that the President also suggested an interim government to the former Vice President, Mr. Abubakar said the matter never came up.

“He did not bring it up, and I also did not,” he said. “We just spoke about politics and the security situation in the country,” Atiku said.
