Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has assured Nigerians that he would work for the quick growth of the economy to make the country better for all
Atiku, who spoke at the party’s presidential campaign in Asaba, the Delta State capital, said between 1999 and 2015, the PDP grew the economy to become the largest in Africa.
The former Vice President promised that with tight security and the right economic policies, his administration would attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to grow the economy.
He told Deltans that the team was not in the state to campaign, saying: “We are here to show our gratitude and appreciation to say that we are with you in all respects because of the support we have received from you from 1999 to date.
“All through my political journey, Delta State has always supported me. I want to promise you that I shall not betray the trust of Delta and the entire Niger Delta.
“That is why in my modest appreciation, I chose one of you as my vice presidential candidate, and you know that a running mate is always a stepping stone.
“Therefore, it is up to you to show your support by giving Governor Ifeanyi Okowa the massive support to enable us to rescue and rebuild our dear country.”
Atiku said his administration would also pay attention to developing the Education sector.
