Former vice president and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has promised to improve agriculture and commerce if elected president.
Addressing a mammoth crowd at Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano, yesterday, Atiku lamented collapsed industries across the country. He accused APC-led government of crippling industries across the country, promising that when PDP assumed power, it will revive all the collapsed industries.
“The people of Kano, I am aware that yours is business and farming, if you elect me come February 16, I will provide you with conducive atmosphere for farming and business.
“I will equally improve activities of hajj to make things easy for you to perform the annual hajj exercise,” he said.
The former vice president promised to improve security in the country if elected.
Earlier, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso said looking at the mammoth crowd that received Atiku in Kano, the youth had proven that PDP will win in the state. He said, “Kano youth have proven to us that Kano is for the PDP. We are happy that the youth have answered our call.”
Also speaking, the Director General of Atiku Campaign, Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki called on Kano people to vote APC-led government out of power come February 16.
He said, “People are suffering because there is hunger everywhere, it is only PDP that can bail you out of this situation.” The National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, said the crowd that converged on Sani Abacha Stadium was a sign of a gradual political revolution in Nigeria.
About 30 PDP supporters fainted during the rally because of the crowded nature of the stadium.
