Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the claim by a Nigerian frontline lawyer, Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose, that he may return to the All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of the 2023 presidential election .
Bamgbose in a chat with DAILY POST on Friday, said “As we draw closer to 2023 Presidential race and politicians are busy strategising on how to be relevant, I foresee Atiku defecting back to APC.
This may seem absurd and incredible, but it will come to pass. This, however, is conditioned on APC not splitting before the end of 2021.
“The ignoble sack of Oshiomhole, by the power brokers in APC, has, in fact, signaled a new dawn in APC. Other things being equal, APC is getting set to zone its presidential slot to the North.”
According to him, all this put together will make the former Vice President retrace his steps back to the ruling party.
