The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday said he will be in charge of his government when he wins and will not allow a cabal to run his government.
Atiku, who stated this while interacting with stakeholders from the 23 local government areas of Kaduna state at the Trade Fair Complex, said President Muhammadi Buhari is not fully in control of government saying that is what has led to the current pains and suffering in the country.
Atiku said the PDP will not tolerate any form of ballot snatching and will not indulge in any act against the electoral law but insisted that the order to kill any ballot box snatcher is undemocratic.
The former Vice President said if elected in this Saturday’s election, he will sell off the NNPC to provide more development, stressing that, his decision is against the backdrop that only very few are benefiting from the operations of the national assets at the expense of the entire Nigerians.
To this end, he challenged President Buhari who is equally the Minister of Petroleum to relinquish the running of the NNPC to ordinary people to show his level of sincerity.
He said, “If I get elected as President, 40 percent of my cabinet will be youth and education will be provided for all regardless of any affiliation, and my government will not be run by cabals.
“The women will be given their due and will not be relegated to the kitchen, while the physically challenged will be carried along accordingly”.
Also speaking, the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus told the state’s stakeholders to resist every form of provocation to warrant postponement of election in the state.
He said, “The governor is running from one place to another seeking federal support to shift election, all such efforts will fail.
“I urge us all to be resolute to vote Atiku Abubakar in the coming election and all other candidates of the PDP in all the elections.
“Resist all forms of provocation because what the government of the day wants is to cause violence so as to shift election particularly in the strong holds of the PDP, we must not fall for their plans”.
