Former Plateau State governor hails Atiku Abubakar resignation from APC
A former governor of Plateau State, Fidelis Tapgun, on Sunday expressed satisfaction with the exit of Atiku from the APC.
He, however, warned the PDP not to give him automatic presidential ticket in 2019.”
Tapgun said, “If Atiku is leaving the APC and coming back to the PDP, he is coming with a lot of supporters.
“We all know that Atiku leaving the APC is 99.5 per cent minus for the APC.
“The PDP is now back on its feet, a lot of the wrong things done in the past are being corrected. So, all of us are happy to see Atiku back in the PDP.”
Tapgun said he did not expect the PDP to give Atiku automatic ticket for 2019 presidency, describing such practice as undemocratic.
He said, “I don’t expect the PDP to give him an automatic ticket. We want a political party which practises democracy. Anybody who wants to contest the 2019 presidency should indicate interest. There should be a level playing field for anybody who wants to contest.”
