A former vice-president and People’s Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has described the ruling All Progressives Congress as an evil party that is determined to sink Nigeria.
Speaking at the South-East PDP presidential rally which held in Owerri, the Imo State capital on Tuesday, Atiku equally accused President Muhammadu Buhari of not campaigning but plotting to rig the February 16 election.
He said, “We have promised jobs for our young men and women knowing full well that the APC party has turned the country into poverty.”
“PDP has promised to get the economy working again. We mean everything we say.”
“The reason we are here is that the PDP will take over Imo State. We will take over Aso Rock. They are not campaigning, they only want to rig. We will resist them.”
The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, said Atiku was ready and prepared to lead Nigeria.
He described Atiku as a man who had the capacity and will to “unite the country again.”
The vice presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, urged the people of the South-East zone to vote for Atiku because he would fix the economy and get the country on track again.
