Atiku also pointed out that the decisions taken during the meeting would decide if the party produces Nigeria’s next president.

He said: “PDP has the right to determine how the party should be run and Nigerians have the right to determine how the country should be governed. The problem of Nigerians has never been where the President comes from.
