The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential Campaign spokesperson, Buba Galadima, has said its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has the capacity to fix Nigeria’s economy and rescue it from the brink of recession.
Mr Galadima stated this on Friday in Abuja at the unveiling of a new book titled, ‘ATIKUNOMICS: The Economic Pillar for a New Nigeria’, written by a journalist, Victor Emeruwa.
According to him, the book would give Nigerians an insight into Atiku’s economical thinking and how he would pull Nigeria out of the woods it is now, create jobs and create opportunities for the people.

Mr Galadima said: “There was a time when robbers used to steal cars, then we brought technology and we were able to track the movement of the cars, you will agree with me that, that method of robbery has greatly reduced because of the deployment of technology.
“This is the same way Atiku is going to use knowledge and technology to take Nigeria out of recession because the people there today have no idea about how to run a modern economy and they did not find it expedient to appoint any known economic adviser.”
Speaking earlier, the author, Mr Emeruwa, said the motivation for writing the book is to show Nigerians how the economy was restructured during the regional governments and how Nigeria could return to the glory days through a genuine economic restructuring.
He said the present government’s economic policy has failed the country, adding that there has never been any time in the history of the country when Nigeria’s economy is not among the top three in Africa.
