Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday assured Nigerians that he would not abandon them if given the opportunity to become the president.

The PDP presidential candidate, who spoke at Ado Ekiti, during his campaign in Ekiti State, said the All Progressives Congress, APC, government had abandoned the state in the areas of roads and federal presence.

He said: “When we were in the palace of the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, the traditional rulers made a case for roads. My administration will tar all the inter-state roads.

He added: “APC doesn’t know how to create jobs and doesn’t know how to give you same.

“We have promised that 40 per cent of our portfolios will go to youths, while 30 per cent will go to women; that is 70 per cent for youths and women.

“We know how to do it; we have done it before, we will do it again,” he assured.

PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, cautioned the Independent National Electoral Commission and the Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, against “plunging the nation into unnecessary chaos by attempting to subvert the mandate of the people in the general elections.”

Mr Secondus expressed optimism that his party would win the February 16 presidential race.

“A leader has to make good his promises, but Buhari promised you jobs, security and to fight corruption. Has he fulfilled his promises? No!

“To do all these, you must know how to do it. Atiku is a man who knows how to create jobs, secure the country and also fight corruption.”
