Atiku-in-Bayelsa Atiku-in-Bayelsa

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has promised to restructure Nigeria if elected President of Nigeria in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

He also said that an Atiku-led government will engage in efforts that will end insecurity in the country.

The former vice president made this known at the presidential campaign rally of PDP on Monday, at the Oxbow Lake Pavilion, in Yenagoa, the state capital of Bayelsa.

He reminded the people that from the beginning of democracy Bayelsa State has been a bastion for PDP, and there was no need to leave the party for an opposition party because the state is one with the party.

He said: “The future of the state and Nigeria is tied to PDP. I will unify this country because we have never been this divided. I will give everyone a sense of belonging if elected.”

“I will restore security, tackle the economy of the country; if you recall, from 1999 to 2015, we were the biggest economy of Africa, but since the inception of the APC the country has suffered economically. There’ll be no more ASUU strikes when I am in power, and our students will continue to grow educationally like their peers in other countries.”

He further stated: “The people of the Niger Delta region need more restructuring than any part of the country. You will not need any government assistance at all times. I will need your support, and I assure you that we will lift the living condition of the people in the country.”
