I wasn’t sum­moned by Oye­gun — Atiku

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

For­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Atiku Abubakar yesterday opened up on the mo­tive be­hind his Mon­day’s visit to the na­tional sec­re­tariat of the APC.

The APC chief­tain, in a state­ment through his me­dia of­fice in Abuja, pointed out that his visit to the party sec­re­tariat was not a re­sponse to a sum­mon by the lead­er­ship of the party as widely re­ported.

Our cor­re­spon­dent re­ports that both Atiku and the na­tional lead­er­ship of the APC re­fused to dis­close the out­come of their meet­ing, a de­vel­op­ment that raised spec­u­la­tions.

“My visit to the na­tional sec­re­tariat of our great party was to rub minds with the party hi­er­ar­chy, and it was of a rou­tine kind as a chief­tain of the party,” Atiku said in the state­ment.

“I was nei­ther sum­moned nor queried by the party on any is­sue as be­ing spec­u­lated. Rather, my visit was at my own be­hest. As a party chief­tain, I owe it a duty to my party to ap­praise chal­lenges within the struc­tures of the party and also prof­fer sug­ges­tions,” the state­ment said.
