Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 elections, has berated the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying steps taken by the ruling party since 2015 had ended in failure.
Atiku made the declaration during the PDP’s north central zonal presidential campaign rally which held in Ilorin, Kwara state, on Wednesday, December 5, Punch reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Atiku stated that the APC had misgoverned the country by making promises which were not fulfilled and that the opposition party was on a rescue mission to save Nigeria from further sinking.
He said: “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 worsened 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.”
The national president of the PDP, Uche Secondus, who was also present at the rally, urged Nigerians to vote for Atiku Abubakar, in order to rescue the nation from hunger.
He said: “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.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the PDP asked the APC to address pressings issues in the country rather than attacking its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The spokesperson for the party, Kola Ologbodiyan, said the APC and the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) were jittery ahead of the 2019 presidential election.
He said the ruling party had nothing to show for almost four years in office and had resorted to attacking Atiku Abubakar in order to deflect attention from pressing issues.
