"Hon­estly speak­ing, I'm still a mem­ber of the APC. I was part of all the pro­cesses, in­clud­ing cam­paigns un­til suc­cess was achieved. But sadly, soon after the for­ma­tion of gov­ern­ment, I was side-lined. I have no any re­la­tion­ship with the gov­ern­ment. I've not been con­tacted even once to com­ment on any­thing and in turn, I main­tained my dis­tance. They used our money and in­flu­ence to get to where they are, but three years down the lane, thi is where we are."

Atiku Abubakar

"In a na­tion where politi­cians are quick tpo dump the peo­ple that as­sisted them to get to where they are, for po­lit­i­cal ex­pe­di­ency, I have cho­sen to main­tain a long-stand­ing fam­ily re­la­tion­ship with Abubakar, as well as Buhari, who I con­sider a fa­ther. Be­sides, nei­ther Buhari nor Abubakar has of­fi­cially told any­one of an in­ter­est in seek­ing elec­tion in 2019."
