The decision by the former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC) in search of better party with democratic ideals is most commendable.
A statement signed by the National Coordinator, Democracy Coalition. Mr. Michael Williams, said that they have long passed verdict on APC as a deceptive party devoid of any democratic credentials.
“Hence, we thank God that Alhaji Atiku has finally seen the deception
in APC and have summoned the courage to quit because when the falcon
can no longer hid the falconer, the best option is to quit.
“By that resignation, Alhaji Atiku has once again proved to the world
that he is not only a bulwark of democracy, but a defender of democracy at great personal risks,” it stated.
The coalition said that all true democrats will move along with a democratic icon in the person of Atiku to any party with democratic appeals ahead of 2019.
“However, we are wishing our adopted Presidential candidate for 2019 a
happy birthday anniversary as he clocks 71 on November 25,” it concluded.
