Nigeria's former vice president Atiku Abubakar has resigned from the country's ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), a move certain to kickstart major political realignments ahead of a general election in 2019.
Addressing a gathering on Friday in Abuja, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, said the doors are opened for the former vice president to return home.
He further described Atiku as "a serial defector".
He said the APC knew that Atiku would quit the APC in December, stressing that it was better he left earlier than planned.
Known to have dozens of loyalists in the Nigerian parliament along with a well-oiled political machine across the country, Abubakar's resignation may trigger a serious implosion in the ruling APC which faces crises of governance. "I can speak authoritatively about it because I'm in touch with my colleagues", he noted.
