The presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has promised to address security challenges facing Nigeria and revamp its economy, if elected as president in 2023.
Abubakar said this at a campaign rally in Jos on Tuesday.
He also promised to run a government that would work for every Nigerian and restore its glory.
“If elected into office in the general elections, I promise to restore the peace and security in the country and revamp the national economy.
“I also promise to bring back the peace that Plateau had enjoyed in the past, revamp its economy and ensure we connect Plateau to its neighbouring states.
“The roads in Plateau State are in a very bad state; there are no connecting roads to neighbouring states. I will ensure we fix them immediately we get into office,” he said.
The PDP National Chairman, Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, in a remark, said that the party was on a historic mission, stressing that there were no cracks in the party and were one on the same mission.
Ayu called on party supporters to vote for all candidates contesting on the platform of the PDP, promising to restore what the country had lost.
Similarly, the Director-General of PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, noted that Plateau was a PDP state, urging the electorate to vote for the party across all levels, so as to return the lost glory of the state and country at large.
The PDP governorship candidate in Plateau, Dr Caleb Mutfwang, appreciated the people of the state for always voting for the party over the years.
Mutfwang called on citizens of Plateau to vote the party again, in order to bring about the desired change they desired.
The PDP Chairman in Plateau, Chris Hassan, assured the people that the party was one and had mapped out strategies to win the general elections, assuring the presidential candidate of more than two million votes.
Members of Atiku’s entourage include Gov. Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom, former Senate President Bukola Saraki and Sen. Philip Aduda, among others.
