Nov 28, 2017 – PDP Eagerly Awaits Obasanjo’s Verdict On Atiku As Buhari Pokes Fun At EX-VP’s Defection From APC
Buhari on Monday poked fun at former VP, Atiku’s defection from the APC party.
Atiku defected to PDP last week to fulfill his ambition of becoming the President in 2019.
President Buhari told APC National Chairman Chief John Odigie-Oyegun at the Presidential Villa before the inauguration of the Tripartite National Minimum Wage Committee: “Accept my sympathy for losing a senior member of your party.”
As Buhari walked into the hall he looked towards where Oyegun was and made the remark jocukarly. Many people laughed as Buhari made his way to his seat.
Meanwhile, there were indications that Northern leaders in the PDP are awaiting former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s verdict on Atiku before taking a position on the 2019 presidential ticket.
