Expressing his satisfaction with the conduct and the commitment of Atiku to the ideals of democracy, he stated that Atiku has a place in ”our political history as an icon of democracy”.

He praised Atiku’s Pan-Nigerian attributes, describing him as a detribalized leader who does not discriminate based on tribe or religion.

Statement further said, addressing the delegation, the PDP National Leader who is also the Waziri of Adamawa thanked them for the visit and for identifying with him. He decried the poor state of affairs in the country since the coming of the All Progressives Congress (APC) regime.

He expressed his readiness to work for the unity of the country at all times and for the uplifting of the fortunes of the citizens of our country, stating that he is not quitting the political stage yet.

The former number two citizen of the country advocated the merger of the different political parties to combat the behemoth APC that is hell-bent on turning the country into a one-party state. Atiku noted regrettably that the last general election and the recent off-season elections were the worst in our political history.

He regretted that instead of an improvement the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other public institutions are deteriorating, making themselves instruments of oppression in the hands of the authoritarian APC regime.
