Former Nigeria’s Vice President and Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar on Monday led chieftains of the party to receive decampees of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State into the party.

The other PDP Chieftains, who joined Atiku in receiving the decampees are former Vice President, Namadi Sambo, the Vice Presidential candidate and Governor of Delta State, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and National Chairman of PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.

Receiving the new members into the party at the Ribadu Square in Yola, Ayu said that the rate of decampment from the APC to the PDP is increasing by the day and an indication that the opposition party is waxing stronger.

He said: “It is clear everywhere that the PDP is back. Today, we are here to take in new members to the PDP. Very soon, this venue shall be hosting the President of Nigeria who is your very own son.

“I welcome the new entrants to our party and I, therefore, hand them over to Governor Fintiri. I urge the governor to continue with his good work in making Adamawa better than he met it.”

Atiku, in a statement by his media aide, Paul Ibe, who was greeted with euphoria by the crowd at the venue, also welcomed the decamped new members of the party, promising that he would work with them.

He said: “I have been serving the people since I joined politics 30 years ago and that is my promise to you all today. I believe that Governor Fintiri has done a good job and that we should join hands to make sure he wins his second term election.”
