Reports has it that former vice president, Atiku Abubakar is making arrangement to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to contest the 2019 presidential election.

This speculated is fuelled by Atiku's recent visit to former head of state, Ibrahim Babangida although he denied that it has anything to do with the 2019 election.

The Punch reports that the former vice president will battle with Alhaji Sule Lamido, the former governor of Jigawa state for party flag bearer.

Reported was that both politicians have spoken to the leadership of the party on their interest in running for the presidency on the platform of the party.

A member of the Board of Trustees of the PDP who did not want his name disclosed claimed Atiku was deep in consultation with the party.

He said Nigerians will be surprised at the calibre of people who have been engaging in talks with the party.

He said: “Atiku knows that he may not have the chance to contest the APC ticket, and that's why we have been talking.

“He wants to be President and as it is, nothing is sure for him in his new party. He still believes that his former party, which is the PDP, is a formidable party on which platform he can realise his age-long ambition.”

Although Atiku is still an APC member, there are reports that he might leave if President Muhammadu Buhari choses to run for a second term.
