Former Vice President of Nigeria, and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, compared the PDP governments with the present All Progressives Congress (APC) administration, saying Nigerians had the longest and consistent record of prosperity and peace under the PDP administration.
Atiku, who made the assertion at the Mapo hall, Ibadan at the South-West presidential rally of the PDP, also promised to begin the restructuring of the country within six months of assumption of office.
He also bashed the APC government for allegedly plunging the country into huge debts, saying Nigerians must vote President Muhammadu Buhari out of office in 2019.
Atiku, who was accompanied to the rally by his running mate, Peter Obi; the party’s National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus; the Director-General of his campaign, Otunba Gbenga Daniel; former governors of Ekiti and Osun, Ayo Fayose and Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola respectively, lamented the widespread hunger, poverty and insecurity in the land.
He assured Nigerians that he would assemble the best economic team to return prosperity to Nigeria.
