The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has said his party has plans to rescue Nigeria from ASUU strike, poverty, hunger, insecurity and disunity.

The former vice president regretted that the country was dragged backwards by the ruling All Progressives Congress which came into power in 2015.

Atiku said this during the flag off of his campaign in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital on Monday.

In his words “When PDP came to power in 1999, we met Nigeria in a state of poverty, insecurity, hunger, lack of education. We lifted Nigeria from the bottom to the top. We became the biggest economy in Africa, we had peace, we had progress. But when Nigerians said they wanted change, they voted for change in 2015.

“What we have seen is poverty, insecurity, lack of jobs and disunity. Our children are no longer going to school. Is that what we want to continue in?

“So, today, we have inaugurated the flag off of our campaign to rescue Nigeria. To rescue Nigeria from hunger, to rescue Nigeria from poverty, and also bring back the unity that we require in this country.

“I want to appeal to all Nigerians, I am standing in Akwa Ibom today to ask them to vote for PDP. If you vote for PDP, it would be a return to prosperity, it would be a return to unity, it would be a return to your safety. There would be no more hunger, there would be security.

“I swear, If you vote for PDP, you will not be out of school, you will get jobs, there will be security, there will be unity,” he stated.

Atiku who acknowledged the fast pace of development in Akwa Ibom state since 1999 attributed such to consistency with the PDP and therefore dedicated the launching of his campaign to the state.

“Nigeria wants to be like Akwa Ibom. You know why, because since 1999, you have not changed party, but you can see the development that is taking place here in Akwa Ibom. You can see the prosperity that is taking place in Akwa Ibom, you can see the security that is available in Akwa Ibom. So the rest of Nigeria would like to be like Akwa Ibom.

“We want to dedicate the launching of this campaign to the achievements of the Akwa Ibom PDP for good governance.”
