APC invites Atiku, Saraki, Tambuwal, others after Gemade, Dogara’s return

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has disclosed that it was ready to receive back into its fold prominent politicians who left the party for one reason or another in the past

The ruling party has invited politicians such as former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, former Senate President Bukola Saraki and Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State who left it to join the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and other parties ahead of the 2019 election.

This was after Senator Barnabas Gemade of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, again decamped to the APC at the weekend.

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, had earlier returned to the ruling party.


APC, in a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary Yekini Nabena, said it was ready to welcome members who wished to return to its fold.

“We assure all true progressives who left the party over whatever grievance to return and join ongoing efforts to reposition the APC and further achieve our pro-people plans for the country,” the party said.
