The presidential candidate for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said that the forthcoming elections are the most important in the history of the nation.
The former Vice President was speaking while campaigning in Umuahia, the Abia state and he said that the ruling party, APC, has destroyed the economy of the nation.
“We have 21 million people unemployed which is the highest in the history of Nigeria and this is not the government we want to continue in this country,” he said
He also urged PDP members in the state to ensure that the party won all the positions of note in the state.
“This election is one of the most important elections in our life time because it will determine if we will be able to empower our youths and our women.
“I will work with your Governor to create employment for the youths through small and medium scale enterprises because Aba is the head quarters of SMEs in Nigeria, we will create a business hub to ensure that Aba serves its purpose for Nigeria and by doing so many young men and women will be gainfully employed.
“You had always voted PDP in this state, continue doing that because your support for the party has brought you good governance, development, progress and we will do more for Abia people”.
Atiku also urged that the party members ensure that they are around when votes are counted so that there won’t be any case of rigging.
“When you vote on the Election day don’t leave your polling units, make sure INEC officials counts the result and declares them before everybody because they know that they will lose and they will want to rig the election and if you allow them to rig our children will suffer the consequences. APC want to steal this election but we will not allow them to steal it”.
