“My people, I stand in your presence to tell you that my husband has done it before. The last election (in 2019) was won by my husband but we were robbed. My husband indeed is a Fulani but he is not a killer and we have been together. I taught him our culture and tradition, and he is part of us.”
Mrs. Titi, wife of the Presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, who made the complains today, November 30, at the PDP rally in Akure, Ondo State capital, promised the Ondo people that her husband will defeat Boko Haram and provide scholarships to students.
She recalled that it was Atiku that brought the likes of Elrufai, Ngozi Okonjo-iweala and others who did well for Nigeria, during Olusegun Obasanjo’s tenure,
“Atiku will defeat Boko Haram and provide you with scholarships.
“No Yoruba has ever been a First Lady and if we vote Atiku, it is a vote for Yoruba. There is hunger in the land, don’t let the opposition deceive you, vote for all PDP candidates during the election.”
This was even as Atiku Abubakar promised to provide enough funds for education, even as he prayed that Nigerians will never witness a repeat of All Progressives Congress (APC)’s government beyond 2023.
He bemoaned the state of education in the country, blaming the ruling APC for what he described as poor policy. He vowed that Nigerians would never witness a repeat performance of the APC beyond 2023.
The Delta State governor and vice presidential candidate of the PDP, Ifeanyi Okowa, said: “In the past eight months, the youths were at home and that shouldn’t be the case.
“Atiku has made provisions to ensure no university goes on strike as special attention would be placed on the youths of the country as well as set aside funds to support youths who would want to go into entrepreneurship.
“As long as you vote Atiku, hunger and unemployment will be a thing of the past. Remain focused, go from school to school, house to house and campaign for Atiku.”
In his address, the PDP national Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, urged the Ondo PDP supporters not to make a mistake but do the right thing by voting Atiku in the coming election.
“Ondo is a PDP state. You are educated and enlightened people and that is why you always vote for the PDP. We must work together to ensure victory. Ondo should give the PDP the highest votes in the southwest.
“The country is in a bad shape, you need an experienced leader to fix the country. Atiku and Obasanjo fixed the economy in 1999 and Atiku is coming back to fix the mess APC has created. He will unify the country, there will be jobs and security.”
