- PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has warned Nigerians to be wary of their votes in the 2019 presidential election
- Atiku charged Nigerians not to allow the incumbent APC-administration steal their votes in the forthcoming elections
- The former vice president said the nation has not been so insecure as we are under the Buhari-led administration
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has charged Nigerians, “not to allow President Muhammadu Buhari to steal their votes in the February 16, 2019 presidential election.”
Atiku, who spoke at an interactive session with some youth groups, social media influencers and bloggers in Abuja on Sunday, January 13, also lamented that the Buhari administration has wrecked the nation and must be voted out for Nigeria to thrive again.
According to press statement sent to Legit.ng by the PDP campaign spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan, the PDP presidential candidate said the desperate attempts by the presidency to manipulate the electoral process are all geared to enable President Buhari steal votes in the election.
He cited the foisting of President Buhari’s relation to head the collation of presidential election results as well as hounding of judicial officers to buttress his claims.
According to him, “President Buhari has stolen your jobs. He has stolen your rights. Don’t let him steal your votes. They are preparing the ground to steal your votes. I know that Nigerians are ready to ‘Get Nigeria Working Again’, but don’t let President Buhari steal your votes."
He further lamented that the Buhari administration has ruined the nation’s economy, adding that Nigeria has never had it so bad since independence.
“Nigeria has never been in such a bad shape as we have today, not even during the civil war. Things are really bad. We have never had the economy this bad and the nation has not been so insecure as we are under the Buhari administration. That is why we all must work together to rescue our nation and make it work again,” he said.
Atiku further urged Nigerians not to despair, saying he has perfected templates that would ensure rapid economic recovery, massive employment opportunity and strategic avenues for empowerment of Nigerians in all sectors of life.
Meanwhile, the minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said the massive achievements of the Buhari administration have rattled the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Reacting to the statement from Atiku's media aide, over the widely-circulated testimony series of his ministry to showcase the administration's achievements, Mohammed said the action of the PDP candidate amounts to an acknowledgement of the administration's impressive achievements.
He also dismissed as 'acute paranoia' the allegation by Atiku that the APC-led federal government is using state resources for electioneering campaign.
