The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate for the 2019 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar said sorry for joining the groups, who came together to form the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said the apology had become vital because of the sufferings Nigerians had been exposed to in the last three and half years from a party he played a role in bringing to power.
The former vice-president, who spoke on Thursday in Yola, Adamawa capital during a town hall meeting with inhabitants of Jimeta, described the APC as an assembly of ‘elements’ that came together to swindle the country.
He said the party had failed in changing the fortunes of Nigerians for good.
He said, “I regretted being a part of the party which never deemed it fit to fulfil all of the promises it made to Nigerians.
“If I had known that the APC would be such a colossal failure and disgrace, I would never had joined the party.
“The APC has failed to fulfill even one of the promises it made to Nigerians. The APC is simply an assembly meant to defraud Nigerians.”
Speaking further, the past Vice-President said that the country would not survive another four years if the APC was returned to power in 2019.
