Atiku Abubakar, a Presidential aspirant under the canopy of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has spoken about his plans for the country.
The former vice president was speaking to PDP delegates at the Government House Banquet Hall in Umuahia, Abia state on Sunday, May 15. He highlighted his five-point development agenda for the country.
The 75-year-old explained that the agenda includes instituting symbols of unity, dealing with insecurity, reviving the economy, education, and restructuring the country.
Atiku also added that the PDP was in a must-win situation for the 2023 elections. “We must win the next election.Would we like to go back? Do we want to remain in opposition? These are the questions before us” he said.
Furthermore, he described himself as being for the South-East. He continued,
“Your aspiration as Igbo people will materialise and be realised. So, give me victory so that your aspiration will be realised. Together, we can achieve these goals if we unite as PDP and fight for power. Therefore, nobody can label me anti-east or anti-race”.
“I came with these objectives and if you should be able to give me this opportunity, I believe we will work together to achieve this”.
Atiku was accompanied by his campaign Director-General, Chief Raymond Dokpesi who described him as “a detribalised Nigerian, astute deliverer of democracy and a unifier”.
