Ex-VP's campaign cars for 2019 election appear online (Photos)

The pictures come on the heels of Atiku's resignation from the APC.

The pictures started circulating on social media late on Sunday, November 26, 2017, with the image of someone that appears to be Atiku himself inspecting the cars.

The cars were branded with his name and the inscription "Yes. Atiku for Nigeria 2019."

While the pictures appear to be genuine, the Vice President's media office has denied that Atiku himself shared the pictures as reported in some circles.

Atiku's resignation

In a resignation letter signed by Atiku on Friday, November 24, he accused President Muhammadu Buhari of neglecting him and condemned the APC for "instituting a regime of a draconian clampdown on all forms of democracy".

In a reaction to his exit from the ruling party, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) urged him to return to the party where he served as the deputy to former President Olusegun Obasanjo from 1999 to 2007, and lost the primaries election to former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011.

While Atiku failed to mention which party he'll be joining, or whether he'll contest for the presidency in 2019, he's expected to pitch his tent with the PDP after a series of private meetings with the party's leadership.

Atiku's presidential ambition

Atiku has contested for the president's seat a number of times, losing to the late President Umaru Yar'Adua in the 2007 presidential election and losing in the primaries to eventual winners President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP and President Buhari of the APC in the 2011 and 2015 presidential elections respectively.

While speaking to State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday, Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai warned Atiku that no Nigerian can currently match President Buhari in popularity and contest against him in an election.
