Nigeria’s Former Vice President and All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, yesterday, in Enugu, warned Nigerians, that a vote for Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2015 general elections, was a vote for continuation of insurgency, kidnapping, oil bunkering, corruption and unemployment, among others.
The former Vice President speaking to Enugu delegates of the party, insisted that the PDP had nothing to offer Nigerians, but howcase propaganda, blaming insurgency, kidnapping, and lack of jobs.
He said: “The PDP government is only good in propaganda. They build railways only on television. There is insecurity everywhere. There is unemployment. Most of the problems in this country, insurgency, kidnapping, oil bunkering is done by youths because they don’t have jobs. Once they have jobs, they will not engage in such. None of them boasts of this experience. I have contributed to democracy more than all of them. Even when the situation favoured me personally, I rejected it for the benefit of the entire country. Records are there for everybody to see. I have prepared myself. I have experience and I want to serve. If you go to APC states, you see what the Governors are doing. If you go to Rivers, Nasarawa, Lagos, Sokoto, you will see what the Governors are doing. You can see it.”
Atiku who was selling his candidacy to the Enugu delegates added that he was the most suitable among the four aspirants vying for the APC presidential ticket, having had the longest political experience, occupied the highest political office in a democracy and worked in every part of the country.
