Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Wednesday, during the PDP North-Central Zonal Presidential Campaign rally, said that all steps taken by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) since 2015 ended in failure.
According to Atiku, the PDP is currently on a rescue mission to save Nigerians from the suffering and hardship APC has put us into.
“In 2015, the APC promised us security which they failed to provide. They promised us food on our table, but today we are hungry. They promised us good health facility and adequate supply of drugs in our hospitals which they failed to do. They promised to fight corruption but worsen the system.
“Every step they take is a failure. In terms of corruption, they are the worst; in the provision of security, they have failed; they failed to create jobs for our teeming youths and today, inflation has taken over. In 2014, Hajj fare was N600,000 but in 2018, it has jumped to N1.5m, food prices have gone up and they continue to tell the people of this country lies.”
“The PDP has come to rescue the people of the country from the suffering, which the APC has put us into,” he added.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, who also spoke at the rally which was held at the Metropolitan Square, Ilorin, said that, “the nation is currently suffering from hunger and insecurity. There is a need for a competent and well experienced Nigerian to come on board to save us. As we are all aware Nigeria is in distress and we are in dire need of a well-connected leader to rescue us.”
Dr. Bukola Saraki, the President of the Senate and the Director General of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, in his speech urged Nigerians to ensure President Muhammadu Buhari is voted out.
“The APC promised Nigeria a lot of things. They promised us security. Then we had security problem only in the North-East, but now it has extended to North-Central and even the North-West. APC has failed because security has worsened.
“People are dying of hunger because economy has gone terribly bad. They have also failed in fighting corruption. The hunger is serious in the country today. Nigeria is today world’s poverty capital. We need a president that will fix the economy, create jobs and unite Nigerians.
“This APC government must go because events of the past three years have shown that they don’t have solutions to all these problems. We must vote this government out and elect Atiku as our next president. My people of Kwara and North central, we must vote out Buhari. Atiku is solution to Nigeria’s problem.”
