Atiku debts

– Make Naira Equal To Dollar, Defeat Boko Haram

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to campaign on their record rather than distorting history on his, Atiku’s perspectives on restructuring.

Responding to Osinbajo’s claim that he, Atiku was against restructuring while in office as vice-president, the PDP candidate directed Buhari, Osinbajo and the public to published reports in Vanguard in 2001 where his efforts on the issue were well documented. Besides, he also referred to his role in creating the six geopolitical zones and efforts to make provisions for the littoral states against the fact that Buhari as military head of state abolished their entitlements by military fiat.

Noting the promises of the APC ahead of the 2015 elections, Atiku said:

“The question we want to ask Professor Osinbajo is this – why does he and his boss constantly resort to rewriting history? Why can they not campaign on their achievements? Is it that they are forced to campaign on subterfuge because they have no achievements to campaign on?

“President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo promised to make ₦1 equal to $1. They vowed to create three million jobs per annum. They promised to pay the unemployed a “job seekers allowance”. They said subsidy was a scam. They also said that they would defeat Boko Haram.

“Nigerians want to know if these promises have been kept. They are not interested in fairy tales about how Atiku Abubakar did not support restructuring because they know that he is and was and will always be an active promoter of restructuring.

Everywhere he goes to campaign, Atiku Abubakar has used temperate and respectful language on both President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo. He has campaigned on his record of achievements, which include the 50,000 jobs he has created in his private capacity, and on his policies and plans to Get Nigeria Working Again.

“We recommend this form of decent politicking to Prof. Osinbajo, even as we urge him to remember that as Vice President, his words matter.”
