What the PDP said:
The party however said Atiku will be allowed to speak at the convention.
“All you need to do is pick up the constitution of the party and see whether Atiku is qualified to vote or not,” Adeyeye stated.
He added, “First of all, I can tell you that we are happy with Atiku coming back to the PDP. It is very exciting for all of us. It is a good omen to everybody in the PDP.
“He was one of the founding fathers, one of those who built this party and he is coming back home. His room was never occupied, so we have opened it for him.
“He will be part of this convention. He will even make a speech at the convention but he may not be voting at the convention.”
