The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC) of abandoning women and youths.
He promised that his government, from 2023, will increase empowerment for women and youths.
The PDP presidential flag-bearer, who spoke today, November 11, at the unveiling of the strategic communications brand of his presidential campaign in Abuja, said: “if we are serious about increased prosperity, then we must increase empowerment of women.
“If we are to recover Nigeria from its current mess that the APC has put us through, then we must begin that recovery from the demography that is most hit by the failure of the APC, which are the women and youth.
“The records are there to compare the performance of the PDP and the APC and the upcoming election should be a referendum on the performance of the APC.
“Nigerians have had a taste of the two parties, and I am not saying this for myself, but we should be proud of the records that the PDP offered,” Atiku said.
The Director of Strategic Communications for the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Bashorun Dele Momodu, in his remarks, said that the Recovery Nigeria messaging is a reflection of the current pains that the country is passing through.
“Nigeria, currently is going through hard times. We have taken time to evaluate the challenges facing the country and the plan to rescue and restore Nigeria by the PDP. That evaluation gave birth to our Recovery Nigeria messaging, because it includes not just the diagnostics of where we are, but the prescriptions of the antidotes to the challenges.”
