Details of Atiku’s meeting with governors, PDP stakeholders revealed

Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar has continued to intensify his presidential ambition as he reportedly met with governors and stakeholders in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Vanguard reports that Atiku used the recently held national convention of the PDP to meet with top members of the party for preparation ahead of the 2019 elections. 

 A member of the National PDP Professional and Business Group (NPPBG) which is the professional and business wing of the party said the former vice president was focused on 2019 with his important meeting with party stakeholders and was “going about his ambition in a very decent manner.” “Politicians meet all the time and so, what happened (the meetings) was no different. But one thing you cannot take away from Waziri is his political maturity and understanding of the game. 

“You saw him during the convention and how he stayed put until winners were announced. This goes to show his level of passion for the party and his belief in the ability of the party to regain power in 2019.” “The former vice president did not fail to say that things should be done the right way. 

We must support the Uche Secondus-EXCO because for the first time, we are going into an election as an opposition party,” noting that the Abuja meetings were at best “Preliminary” as he (Atiku) will continue to interface with party leaders and stakeholders. “Let us not tie these meetings to 2019 alone and do not forget that there is 2018 in between. For a man of his stature, these meetings are expected.”
