Atiku’s ambition receives a boost as 38 political parties adopt ex-VP.
The Adamawa chapter of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), an umbrella body for 38 political parties in Nigeria, has reportedly adopted Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of 2019.
Sahara Reporters states that the decision was reached after IPAC elected its new officials in the state on Monday, November 19.
The report quoted Usman Bakawu, the publicity secretary of IPAC, as saying that the group was synergising to mobilise support for Atiku Abubakar.
“Yesterday the former vice president received us in audience and gave us useful advice on how we can synergise to move our dear state forward.
“And I can also confirm to you that IPAC, Adamawa state chapter, has identified with Atiku and in the coming days, we’ll be working towards mobilising our various supporters for the Waziri Adamawa,” he said.
