A presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023 and a former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has begged the party’s delegates in Katsina State to support him and not forsake him in the presidential primaries.
As usual, the Katsina people have always supported him, Atiku said that the APC stole his election results in Katsina and four other states in the 2019 presidential election, warning them not to repeat the mistake in 2023.
He said: In the 2019 general elections, Katsina State was among the states where APC rigged the election results. They also stole our results in four other states: Kano, Kaduna, Borno and Yobe. So, I am thanking the people of katsina State for supporting PDP and I hope this time around you will not allow them to steal your vote.”
Addressing Katsina delegates at the PDP state secretariat, Atiku appealed:
“My brothers and sisters from katsina, first and foremost, you are the people who initiated me into politics. Secondly, you are the people that trained me in politics and most importantly, I would not have been what I am today without the support of the Katsina people.
“That is why I want to know if you really want to throw me away this time”, he added.
Atiku then went on to elaborate on the five major areas on which he intends to focus if elected president in 2023.
First and foremost, he promised to bring Nigerians together, restore security, law and order, and ensure that everyone feels like they belong.
Atiku also promised to restructure the economy and address issues in the Nigerian educational system, accusing Buhari’s administration of being oblivious to university closures around the country.
