The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and former vice president of the nation, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, tendered an apology for joining the groups, who came together to form the All Progressives Congress.
He noted the apology is acceptably necessary because the masses are really suffering and what they had been subjected to in the last three and half years from a party he played a role in bringing to power.
The vice president speaking in Yola, Adamawa State on thursday described the APC as an assembly of ‘elements’ that came together to defraud the country and had flopped in changing the fortunes of Nigerians for good.
He stated, "I lamented being part of the party which never deemed it fit to fulfil all of the promises it made to Nigerians.
“If I had known that the APC would be such a colossal failure and disgrace, I would never had joined the party.
“The APC has failed to fulfill even one of the promises it made to Nigerians. The APC is simply an assembly meant to defraud Nigerians.”
Speaking further, the former Vice-President said that the country would not survive another four years if the APC was returned to power in 2019.
