The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has travelled from Dubai, United Arab Emirates to the United Kingdom (UK), the PDP leader worries over the continued travels by the candidate.
Wakadaily gathered that Atiku has been out of the country since June, which most stakeholders in the party are said to be worried that Atiku, who they believed should be at the forefront of meetings with aggrieved leaders of the party like the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike; Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom.
Some leaders of the PDP said that “it will be unexplainable if Atiku did not return to Nigeria early next week for the Osun State governorship election.
PDP leader from Plateau State lamented “He was not in Ekiti, won’t he be in Osun too? How are we going to explain his absence? Or is it that he does not understand the importance of the Ekiti and Osun elections? May be he is feeling that after winning the primary, he has automatically won the main election.”
A former NWC member said he is getting worried that even “during Sallah celebration, our presidential candidate, a Muslim, is not here to celebrate with our people. This is not too good because there is no other Eid-el-Kabir festival before the election in February, next year.
According to him, “if this level of disenchantment by the former Vice President is allowed to grow beyond this level, it will be difficult to handle.”
