Former Minister of Aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, has appealed to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

This comes hours after the former vice president resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday.

Fani-Kayode, as well as the senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Ben Murray-Bruce, urged Atiku to come back to the PDP to help build the party.

Also, former acting chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, congratulated the former presidential candidate for leaving the APC and asked him to return to his party to help regain the trust of Nigerians.

Atiku was the vice to former President Olusegun Obasanjo when Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999.

He left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC in February 2014, after joining the PDP following his defeat at the presidential election of 2007 on the platform of the then Action Congress.

While he was in the PDP, he also declared his intention to contest for the Presidency in 2011 but lost to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
