A youth and women group in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) identified as the PDP New Generation, has stated that the party’s presidential candidate, only Atiku Abubakar, amongst other parties candidates has the capacity to reset the country.
In a statement by the spokesperson of the group, Princess Nikky Onyeri, she lamented that the country is divided along both ethnic and religious lines, which has never happened before, saying it will require the expertise and experience of Atiku to unite the country.
She said: “Today, the country is divided along ethnic and religious lines like never in our chequered history and the only option is Atiku Abubakar, who is popularly called ‘The Unifier.’ The citizens are confident of his political sagacity, capacity, ideologies and plans, which are out in the open in his policy document.
“Part of his agenda is to set up an e-government system to reduce the cost of governance, improve workflow management and overall efficiency. Atiku has proposed to remove the entire electricity value chain from the exclusive legislative list and give states the power to generate, transmit and distribute power to cater to the people’s needs,” she said.
She added that Atiku is the only candidate who has promised to restructure the country and devolve powers to component states, employ and upgrade the security architecture, to help in curbing the insecurity ravaging the country.
“He has talked about attracting foreign direct investment and has also affirmed his willingness to restore investors’ confidence in our economy to ease investment, especially in the non-oil sector.
“Nigerians look at him with confidence and hope, and that is why from Adamawa to Katsina, to Kano and wherever he goes, brooms are being burnt and the popular song “APC Sai Mun Bata Wuta” meaning (APC must be dealt with) from a famous Hausa musician (Naziru Sarkin waka) is being played and danced to by citizens to showcase rejection of the APC government.”
