Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He announced his decision in a statement he issued on Friday morning.
Atiku, who was silent on his next political move, said he took the decision after consulting “God, his family members and supporters”.
He lamented over the situation of things in the ruling party, recalling how the founding fathers of the APC reached out to him to join the party.
The former number two citizen took a swipe at the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, sayinng APC is a dying party.
“After due consultation with my God, my family, my supporters and the Nigerian people whom I meet in all walks of life, I, Atiku Abubakar, Waziri Adamawa, hereby tender my resignation from the All Progressives Congress while I take time to ponder my future,” he said.
