A former Vice president of Nigeria, and the Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, yesterday, knocked at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), saying the party cannot campaign on issues because it had nothing to campaign with.
Atiku, in a statement, said APC as a ruling party, having ruined the economy, and with increased level of insecurity in the country, had no issues-based campaign to bank on. He called on Nigerians to mobilise ahead of the presidential election to vote out APC for the pain it had caused them as well as the insecurity the administration had brought upon the country.
“It means that we have to rev up our mobilisation and multiply our support base. The APC is desperate to hold on to power, even as you and I know that they have failed woefully.
“The glaring failures of the APC are the reason they can’t campaign on issues that affect you and I. We must throw them out and make a statement that this democracy works for the people of this country. To make that emphatic statement, let me ask that in this coming November, you mobilise new members to our camp.
“We must multiply our base in November. When the PDP wins the presidency, with a majority in the National Assembly and across the states in February, we would have cast an umbrella of prosperity and peace that covers everyone.”
