Nigeria’s former Vice President and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has Thursday, in Enugu State, said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led federal government is compounded with lies.
This is as different support groups canvassing for the former vice president overwhelmed control by security agents as the former vice president visited the state.
At the state party secretariat, Atiku said “This government is a government of liars. They promised three million jobs per annum but Nigerians have been losing three million jobs every year. This job loss has brought the worst form of insecurity in the country.
“We are facing challenging times in Nigeria. The economy is at its lowerst ebb and the greatest challenge is unemployment”.
The presidential aspirant stated that the 2019 general elections would be Nigeria’s most crucial poll in which citizens must ensure their votes count.
He cautioned, “The is the most crucial election. Make sure you vote and when you vote, stand to protect your votes”.
According to him, experience stands him out from the crowd, noting that he is the only former vice president running for 2019 presidency.
He further said, “No other government has surpassed our strides in governance. So, if you are looking for an experienced person, I am here; if you are looking for a politician that can create jobs and unite Nigeria, I am here”.
Okwesilieze Nwodo, former PDP National Chairman, said Abubakar was the only candidate who would implement restructuring, improve Nigeria’s economy and education standards, create jobs and solve poverty and killing issues in the country.
