According to Vanguard, the former vice president said he is "on a mission to set the country on the path of growth in the state of "serial failure" of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government."

Atiku claimed "the APC Federal Government has destroyed the nation's education, health and infrastructural sectors through poor budgetary allocations and releases.

"Since 2015, we have not seen a 100kilometres constructed by the APC Federal Government anywhere in the country. I have never seen Nigeria so divided along religious, ethnic and regional lines as a result of the mismanagement of the APC"

The former vice president said it was time to end the APC's misrule. 

In his reaction, Governor Wike said they had set their sight on removing the APC from power in 2019.

He said "Every Presidential Aspirant must see himself as a member of the larger PDP family. We must do everything to ensure that PDP returns to the Presidential Villa in 2019.

"Only one aspirant will become a candidate. We will do everything to ensure that the party comes out with a candidate that has a track record to upstage the APC"
