Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has attacked his former party, the All Progressives Congress, describing it as the "enemy" of his new found love, the Peoples Democratic Party, and the people of Nigeria.

In a statement by Atiku Media Office, the former Vice President asked for unity among members of the PDP, following the election of the party’s executives at its National Convention on Saturday.

He congratulated Prince Uche Secondus as the new national chairman of the party and other elected officials.

He said the immediate challenge before the newly elected national officials was to run an all-inclusive administration where the various interests within the party could find accommodation.

Atiku said that Nigerians were looking up to the PDP for unity in the party, “because it takes a united and coherent PDP to sack the APC government in 2019."

The full statement reads: “Our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party is, again, at the threshold of a historical moment. Just as we mobilised to put an end to prolonged military rule in 1999, the people of Nigeria at this moment look up to us to rescue the country from the mis-government of the APC.

“Arising from our elective congress, there should be no victor and no vanquished. Our paramount attention should be focused at sacking a government that deceived the people of Nigeria into power by promising our youths three million jobs annually, only to deliver three million job losses annually; a government that is repeatedly living in denial of its commitment to restructuring. We must be united to take power back to where it belongs: the Nigerian people.

“As members of the PDP, we must take pride in being able to hold a national convention and in so doing live up to the bill of being a truly democratic political party. Our major opponent has not been able to achieve this feat and I join millions of our party members to congratulate the Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee.

“I understand that there are complaints and grievances from many of the co-contestants in the congress. I am aware that the PDP has a mechanism for addressing such complaints and it is important that such avenues of redress are made available for members to explore without let or hindrance Meantime, I call on ALL our leaders and members to rally the new executive for the sake of our party, Nigeria and the good of our people.
