The ex-VP also said that the ruling party has failed the youths of Nigeria. He said “How can we have a federal cabinet without even one single youth. “A party that does not take the youth into account is a dying party. The future belongs to young people. ”The former VP said this in a statement which he released to newsmen on Friday, November 24, 2017. Atiku, in his letter, also declared that he is leaving the ruling APC. The ex-VP also accused the APC of clamping down on all forms of democracy within the party and the government.
Atiku also said that the APC has failed Nigerians, adding that the party is making the same mistake PDP made. He said “While other parties have purged themselves of the arbitrariness and unconstitutionality that led to fractionalization, the All Progressives Congress has adopted those same practices and even gone beyond them to institute a regime of a draconian clampdown on all forms of democracy within the party and the government it produced.
“Only last year, a governor produced by the party wrote a secret memorandum to the president which ended up being leaked. In that memo, he admitted that the All Progressives Congress had ‘not only failed to manage expectations of a populace that expected overnight ‘change’ but has failed to deliver even mundane matters of governance’.
“Of the party itself, that same governor said ‘Mr. President, Sir Your relationship with the national leadership of the party, both the formal (NWC) and informal (Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso), and former Governors of ANPP, PDP (that joined us) and ACN, is perceived by most observers to be at best frosty. Many of them are aggrieved due to what they consider total absence of consultations with them on your part and those you have assigned such duties. “Since that memorandum was written up until today, nothing has been done to reverse the treatment meted out to those of us invited to join the All Progressives Congress on the strength of a promise that has proven to be false. If anything, those behaviours have actually worsened.”

Though the former Vice-President did not state if he will be joining another party, there are unconfirmed speculations that he might move to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
