Former vice-president and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar, has said that his commitment to the APC and the success of its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of the party in the 2015 general election, is unwavering and never been up for bargaining.

The former vice-president made the assertion against the backdrop of reports in a section of the media of his purported return to the fold of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“I remain irrevocably committed to the APC, as I promised in my concession speech at the conclusion of our party’s presidential primaries, and has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the victory of General Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of our great party at the general elections,” the former Vice President is quoted to have said.

A statement by the Atiku Media Office, in Abuja, on Tuesday, said that reports of the Turaki Adamawa’s purported return to the PDP or any other party, is the handiwork of mischief makers, focused on pitching the former vice-president against other leaders of the opposition party.
