Atiku Assures Southeast of Restructuring the Country as President

Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Atiku Abubakar has stated that he is a ‘stepping stone’ towards the realisation of a president of Igbo extraction, promising that his administration would restructure the country.
Atiku, who is also the former vice president, came out with this in Enugu State during a meeting with PDP stakeholders from the Southeast in continuation of his consultation with stakeholders across the six geo-political zones.

He noted that he was optimistic of winning the 2023 general elections and was prepared to change things for the better for citizens adding that he was interested in the repositioning of Ndigbo to play a vital role in the survival and development of the country, stressing that he would at all times respect and honour the people of the zone.

He emphasized that his love for the region influenced his choices of Senator Ben Obi and Peter Obi as his running mates in his two previous outings as presidential candidate, adding that he has chosen another Igbo for the third time as his running mate.
“As you know, the Southeast is close to my heart. You have supported me through thick and thin and I will always remember that. Your sons and daughters have played very positive roles in the development of our country; they were key personnel who played important roles in the PDP government in which I served as Vice President. And they have continued to excel in other roles across the world.
“You are a key contributor to economic activities in this country and a government that wants to revive our economy and provide opportunities for our people must carry the Southeast along. I am a businessman and I know that businesses need supporting environments to thrive and when they thrive, the country thrives.”
He assured the people that his agenda would benefit them and that they would not be left out in the scheme of things.
