The South-West chapter of the Nigeria Youth Coalition (NYC) has urged former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before December.
Abiodun Emmanuel, coordinator of the group, in a statement on Thursday urged Atiku to seek the support of former Nigerian leaders like Olusegun Obasanjo in his presidential bid.
He said Atiku may not be able to secure PDP’s ticket if he does not participate in the forthcoming convention.
“We want the former vice-president to return to the PDP as soon as possible so that he can participate in the December convention,” the statement read.
“He should be part of the PDP rebirth, this will avail him a better chance to compete during the party’s primary, ahead of the 2019
“We are ready to mobilise Nigerian youths in support of Atiku, come 2019 elections. Nigerian youths are confident that only the former vice-president is competent and experienced enough to lead Nigeria to economic prosperity.”
