The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Friday, during a town hall meeting in Jimeta, Yola, Adamawa State, expressed regret for joining the group that formed the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to him, he owes Nigerians an apology because of the sufferings brought upon them in the last three and half years by the party he helped emerge into power.
He further described the ruling party as an assembly of elements that came together to defraud the nation.
“I regretted being a part of the party which never deemed it fit to fulfill 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,” he said.
