2023 Presidency: Atiku Reveals Benefits Of Restructuring Nigeria
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has promised to give priority to the issue of restructuring the country if he is voted into office in 2023.
Naija News reports that the former Vice President made the promise during the PDP presidential campaign rally in Akure, the Ondo state capital, on Wednesday.
Atiku assured the people of Ondo and the entire South-West region that restructuring the nation would promote good governance, and develop strategies that will enhance even development across the nation
He said: “My government, God willing, will push for the restructuring of the polity to achieve the following objectives: promote good governance, develop strategies that will enhance even development across the nation, which would ultimately benefit the people; maximize the potentials for job creation as well as expand opportunities and national harmony.”
Speaking further, Atiku pledged to eliminate insecurity, build federal roads and make other roads in the country motorable if elected as President in 2023.
The PDP flagbearer also appealed to the people of the state to vote massively for the party just as they did in the 2019 general elections.
He added: “By giving us the highest votes in the South-West, we will never forget you, and that is why if you repeat the support, we promise we will deal with insecurity. We will eliminate it. We will also make sure that all the federal roads linking Ondo State and other parts of the country are motorable.
“I have also undertaken to make sure that our young man or woman—you are the ones gathered here today. You are the ones suffering in the sun today. You are going to vote for us and protect that vote for us; we promise you, and we will set aside enough money to make sure that we empower you for your jobs, for your security, and for your families.
“That is why in our policy documents, we said we were going to set aside 10 billion US dollars to make sure that we provide small and medium enterprises for young men and women to create jobs and to empower themselves. This is our number one priority. We must empower our young men and women so that they can have a brighter future for themselves and their families.”
