According to him, Atiku's defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should be a cause of concern for the APC leadership.

Hundreds of party faithful had amassed around the vicinity of the Wadata Plaza National Secretariat of the PDP as early as 9:30am in anticipation of his visit which leaked early this morning.

"Let nobody fear that the defection of the former Vice President is going to lead to any deluge".

He maintained that there was no other party that was truly settled outside APC, adding that even the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) was not stable because it was still fighting to get a chairman.

The former vice president also reached out to other PDP defectors in the APC to return to the former ruling party.

"Now that we have learnt our lessons, I hope that we will be guided by the lessons we have learnt".
