2019 presidency: What Atiku, Secondus said during PDP Lagos rally



The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has assured Nigerians that he would fulfil his promise to restructure Nigeria if elected in Saturday’s presidential election.

The former Vice President gave the assurance during PDP’s campaign rally in Lagos State on Tuesday.

He stated that unlike the All Progressives Congress, APC, which he claimed has failed to deliver on its promises, he would fulfill his promises to create jobs for millions of unemployed Nigerians.

Atiku also promised to remove congestion in Lagos state which he said had virtually crippled the economy of the state.
He said, “Let me assure you and let me assure the people of Lagos state and South-West, you know I am not like APC. When I promise something I will do it. I promised Nigerians that I am going to restructure this country, I am going to do it.
“Look at what they have done. Our traffic cannot move. On the day the President was coming, they removed all the trucks. No sooner he left all the trucks are back. With a PDP government, you are not going to have this congestion again. So the people of Lagos, please vote for PDP all the way.”

Also speaking, the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, said by electing his party in the forthcoming elections, Lagos would regain freedom from the “hand of emperor”.
He decried that many industries and businesses had shut down in Lagos which is the commercial capital of the Nigeria since the APC assumed power.
“Since 2015, there has been go-slow in Lagos, all businesses shut down, all industries shut down. Unemployment has increased. Economy has collapsed. Security has collapsed,” he said.
