I wasn’t summoned by Oyegun — Atiku
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.
