Only PDP Governors, States Are Working in Nigeria, Says Atiku
Recall that former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, recently stated that only states controlled by the PDP are working to meet the aspirations of electorates in Nigeria.
According to the PDP presidential candidate in 2019, states controlled by the ruling All Progressives Congress are simply sleeping as projects are not being commissioned in their domain.
Abubakar made the statement when he commissioned a 4.2-kilometre road constructed by the Bauchi state government on Thursday, November 25.
