I’m The Only Candidate That Can Defeat APC -Atiku

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar tells Sunday Aborisade  his strategies to win the 2019 presidential poll if he emerges the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party

What do you think qualifies you to be Nigeria’s President?

Atiku Abubakar has experience in both the public and private sector. As Vice President, my support for democracy is without match. My headship of the economic management team propelled the era of privatisation which stimulated the economy to grow at 7seven per cent annually.

In the private sector, I have a track record of job creation and I had created more jobs than any other aspirant. I have the ability to see opportunities and turn them to wealth creating opportunities.

I have the ability to pool the best minds together to move the country forward and has proven that both in the public sector and my private businesses.

I am a detribalised leader who sees Nigeria as his constituency.

Atiku has a great understanding of governance; he is a person with vision, passion, policies and political will to get things done.

How do you hope to defeat others in the primaries?

Atiku Abubakar is the one candidate with experience across the regions, states and local governments of Nigeria; he is not the candidate of one area or denomination. He has support across Nigeria – from youth, farmers and business people. The delegates of PDP, from across Nigeria will recognise Atiku as the one candidate who can defeat the APC and bring jobs and opportunities, unity, security and development to all of Nigerians.
