In a resolute response to recent speculations fueled by a publication in The Nation, the former vice president of Obasanjo and political stalwart, Atiku Abubakar, has vehemently denied any claims of leaving the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Amidst a flurry of inquiries from party members, supporters, and concerned citizens, Atiku Abubakar took to social media to clarify his position, emphasizing his steadfast commitment to the PDP and the critical need for a merger among opposition parties to strengthen the political landscape against current governance shortcomings.

The rumors, which Atiku Abubakar describes as a concoction of mischief, sought to portray a political shift that he firmly repudiates. In his statement, Atiku Abubakar underlines the fabricated nature of the story, asserting, “Let me be unequivocal: this is pure mischief, devoid of truth.” His loyalty to the PDP remains unshaken as he champions the cause for unity among opposition entities to effectively counter the ruling party’s agenda.

Atiku Abubakar’s critique extends beyond party politics, directly addressing the leadership style of President Tinubu. He accuses the President of pursuing personal gains to the detriment of addressing the nation’s urgent needs. With a pointed critique of Tinubu’s alleged preoccupation with the 2027 political scene, Atiku Abubakar calls for a redirection of focus towards the immediate welfare of the Nigerian populace, criticizing what he perceives as a lack of effective governance under the current administration.

The call for opposition consolidation comes at a pivotal time as Atiku Abubakar highlights the necessity of presenting a united front to advocate for and implement policies that cater to the pressing demands of Nigerians. This vision for a collaborative political effort aims to transcend individual ambitions for the greater good of the country’s future.

In defense against the allegations, Atiku Abubakar stated that his media team is actively engaged in dispelling the falsehoods circulated by the publication, reinforcing his message of commitment to the PDP and the broader goal of fostering a conducive political environment for Nigeria’s progress.

As political dynamics continue to evolve, Atiku Abubakar’s clarion call for unity and focus on governance over power plays resonates with many looking for substantial change. His stance serves as a reminder of the responsibilities that political leaders bear towards their constituents, advocating for a shift from personal ambitions to the collective advancement of the nation.
