Atiku Launches Presidential Campaign In Yola

A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has decried the rate of unemployment in the country.

He faulted the situation on Saturday when he officially flagged off his presidential campaign in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.

“Today, we have the highest unemployment rate in the history of our country. More than 10 million youth are unemployed,” Atiku told a gathering of supporters and members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the rally.

He accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government of poor leadership and worsening the nation’s economy.

Condemning the repeated killings in parts of the country, the former Vice President said Nigeria was facing its worst security challenge since it gained independence.

He, however, promised to revamp the nation’s security architecture, ensure the safety of lives and property, as well as fix the economy if elected as Nigeria’s president.

Less than 210 days to the presidential election, Atiku was confident that he and the PDP would reclaim power at the centre from President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC if he was given the party’s ticket.

“Today I have returned to reclaim what rightly belongs to the PDP,” the presidential aspirant said. “My fellow Nigerians, the government of APC has failed; it has failed to unite Nigeria.”

“Today, we are more divided than any other time in the history of this country. The APC government has destroyed our economy. They took over an economic growth of seven per cent and brought it down to less than two per cent,” he claimed.

Atiku, a former APC chieftain, announced his defection from the ruling party in November 2017 through his aide, Paul Ibe, after which he returned to the PDP.

In his quest to become the nation’s number one citizen, he contested against President Buhari and three others for the APC ticket in the build-up to the 2015 general elections.
