Without peace, security, all campaign promises are futile – Atiku

…Says he will be another Abubakar Tafawa Balewa

By Mike Odiakose

Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar on Monday said campaign promises cannot be fulfilled where there is no peace or insecurity.

Speaking at PDP presidential campaign in Gombe, Atiku declared that the peace and security of the country will take prime position if he is elected president in 2023.

Atiku, who spoke in Hausa and English languages assure the people that his government will ensure that they give businesses the support to set-up industries that will give youths both males and females jobs.

“What I want to pledge here in Gombe is to ensure that we give businesses the support to set-up industries that will give youths both males and females jobs. Recall it was the PDP that built the Dakin-Kowa Dam to provide electricity to the North-east and give farmers the opportunity to farm,

“I will create wealth and jobs in Gombe State, if you give me the mandate. I promise you that if you elect me what we have started, I will ensure that the electricity that will be provided from Dakin-Kowa Dam will be sufficient to the entire North-east. I will enhance farming so that our farmers will have the opportunity to farm both during raining and dry seasons.

“Gombe, Bauchi, Adamawa, Borno and Yobe are all interconnected; therefore, I will ensure that we build roads to enable smooth trip within these states with ease and ensure that commercial activities thrive, most especially, I will return peace to the state because without peace all these pledges that I made cannot be actualised. I will wipe out Boko Haram.

“Book Haram is nothing. We have wiped out Boko Haram in Adamawa, What will stop us from wiping out Boko Haram in Borno or Yobe or anywhere they are in this country. Therefore give us the mandate.

“When Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa was the Prime Minister most of you were not born, don’t you want another Tafawa Balewa in the North-east? This can only be actualised by voting PDP and here I am the one that will give you the opportunity to produce another Tafawa Balewa.”

Also speaking, the Chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State reminded the people of the health of the Nigerian economy and the almost eight years of the APC administration.

His words: “When PDP was in power, how much was a tin of milk, how much is a tin of milk today? When PDP was in power, how much was a bag of rice, how much is a bag of rice today? When PDP was in power, how much was one orange, how much is an orange sold today?

“We just want to let the People know that PDP is coming back to make sure that our economy bounces back, to make sure that our naira regain in strength, to make sure you have more milk in your tea. PDP is coming back to bring the economy back, to make sure there is light, to make sure no more darkness, to make you have access to many things you are not having now.”

In his own address, the Director General of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Governor Aminu Tamuwal, assured the people that security challenges confronting the country will become a thing of the past if PDP is returned to power at the national level in 2023.

“We know that the Wazirin Adamawa is here at home in Gombe and when the PDP gets to power in 2023 Atiku will ensure security, peace in Gombe and Nigeria at large.

“We know that Gombe is a commercial centre, we shall ensure that wealth is revitalised and bring development, commerce in Gombe and the country at large. Youths both male and female will get jobs in the country, farming will be revitalised and the country as a whole.

“I know the people of Gombe know this which are the agenda of his government if elected.”
