Massive Jubilation As Atiku Abubakar Set To Join And Emerge As SDP’s 2019 Presidential Candidate, Only On One Special Condition

Emerging reports reveal that the newly revamped Social Democratic Party, SDP, is set to receive some high profile Politicians into its fold, including former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, in the coming weeks, ahead of the 2019 general elections.

It is being reported that the SDP could be set to welcome the former Vice President, if he fails to clinch the ticket to contest the 2019 Presidential election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

A highly placed party source told Vanguard in confidence that: ” The SDP had in the past couple of weeks met with prominent Politicians in the country, preparatory to their defection. While noting that “some details remain to be ironed out” before the party will welcome them. The SDP stalwart said for the first time, a political party committed to the ideals of democracy and the welfare of the people has finally arrived.”

The source revealed further: “Our party, the SDP, is anchored on the values of justice, fairness, constitutionalism and democracy. These are the same values Atiku has been promoting both in his public outings and on the social media. So, I think it will be a good thing, if he joins us, especially if those who are afraid of his popularity deny him of the Presidential ticket of his party.

“It is a good thing that the political space has been enlarged with the registration of more political parties. Going by the history of this nation, you will agree with me that some of these parties will fizzle out in due time. For this reason, we are already discussing with some of them that share in our political ideology and philosophy. We want them to join us and together, we can move Nigeria forward.”

 

Although, Gana has been rumoured as a potential Presidential candidate of the party in 2019, things are likely to change quickly considering the political heavyweights on the verge of joining the party ahead of the general elections.

 

Atiku rejoined the PDP from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in December 2017 after enduring a frosty relationship with the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
