Atiku: Nigerians voted for change in 2015, but instead received poverty and insecurity

Posted by

If elected in the general election of 2023, Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, has pledged to fight against poverty and insecurity.

The former vice president spoke on Monday at the beginning of the PDP’s presidential campaign in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom.

Three years after joining the APC, Abubakar quit it in 2017. He claimed that the PDP “lifted Nigeria from the bottom to the top” and made it the largest economy in Africa.

He asserted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had failed to uphold its promises made during the election year to better the country after ousting the PDP.

“Nigeria declared its desire for change and voted for it in 2015. What did we observe? Poverty, instability, a lack of jobs, and discord are what we have observed, he stated.

“Our kids don’t go to school anymore. Do we want to keep going in that direction?

“Today, we launched our campaign to free Nigeria from hunger and poverty and to restore the needed sense of national unity. I am standing here in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, to make an appeal to all Nigerians to vote for the PDP.

“If you vote for PDP, there won’t be any more hunger and there’ll be security. It’ll be a return to wealth and harmony.”

Speaking on the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) ongoing strike, Abubakar said:

“I swear, if you vote for PDP, you’ll all return to school, find employment, have security, and have unity.”
