Did Atiku found PDM?
The late major general, Shehu Musa Yar’Adua (retd), founded the PDM in 1994 and became a registered political party in August 2003.

In 2020, the movement was deregistered as a political party, among others, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
How many branches did PDM have as political movement of Atiku?
While speaking to journalists on Tuesday, September 20, the group’s national leader, Frank Igwebuike and its national secretary, Maimunat Ahmadu, said the defunct PDM still have offices in the 36 states and the FCT
Igwebuike revealed that the movement had carried out a highly sophisticated study work on the Nigerian political milieu, but the man whom the cap fits is Bola Tinubu.
