- The campaign buses were parked in a residential compound, probably awaiting the ex-VP's much expected declaration of a PDP return
- The buses were also inspected by some of Atiku Abubakar's supporters
- The pictures come just as the PDP confirmed that it is in talks with the former vice president to return to the party after resigning from the ruling APC
As moves go on within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to get former vice president Atiku Abubakar to return to the party, photos have emerged of a fleet of campaign buses carrying his face in Niger state.
NAIJ.com discovered the photos which were uploaded by a Facebook user Comrade Abdulsalam Isah Kolo in Minna on Sunday, November 26.
The campaign buses which are minivans were equipped with generating sets and speakers among other things. They also carried the smiling face of the former VP and PDP's umbrella logo with the inscription 'Yes, Atiku for Nigeria 2019'.
This discovery comes just as NAIJ.com reported that the Adamawa chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) confirmed the receipt of the resignation letter of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar from the ruling party.
And reports emerged that former president Goodluck Jonathan reportedly sent a message to Atiku Abubakar to go and beg Chief Olusegun Obasanjo if he wants to get the PDP presidential ticket.
NAIJ.com reports that although the former vice president has not publicly indicated the party he would be defecting to after he resigned from the ruling APC days ago, there is speculation that he might want to run on the platform of the PDP.
Now, there appears to be pictorial evidence to back up that line of thought if this is not a tampered image.
