Political Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, has said that former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, left the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), because he could not realise his presidential ambition with the ruling party.
Ojudu chided the Waziri Adamawa for twisting facts and whipping up sentiments against the Buhari administration.
Speaking on Channels Television’s programme, Sunrise, he also claimed that Atiku had always destroyed the parties that hosted him by turning around to pull it down, if he failed to get the nomination ticket.
“Atiku’s defection is not surprising . During the meeting of the G-19, the Legacy Group that formed the APC, Atiku was there.
“We laid our programmes as a government before the party leaders and asked for their contributions. He was the only person who refused to talk. The second time the meeting was called, Atiku did not attend.
“We knew that he will leave. Each time he wants to leave a house, he demolishes the house,” Ojudu said.
