“Atiku is a Nigerian. He is allowed to go to any party and our constitution allows it. So, it is not new and there is nothing wrong for politician to move from one party to another.”

“I have here, the chairman of the caretaker committee, former chairman of Kaduna State, the Chairman of convention planning committee, the Governor of Delta State with the officials for the convention.
“I am glad they are working hard and I have seen that they want to make sure that the convention of the PDP is rancour free, transparent and everybody will be given a level playing ground. PDP will see one of the best convention like never before.”
