The former Nigeria’s Vice President and the Peoples Democratic Party’s flag bearer Alhaji Atiku Abubakar gives an undertaking that if elected, 40 per cent of his cabinet will be women and youths.
Writing from his twitter handle, he regrets that Nigeria under the incumbent President Buhari has become the world headquarter for extreme poverty.
To stop the extreme poverty and migration from Nigeria, Atiku speaks of the policies during his time in government which was designed to “help young people grow”.
Atiku reveals that his policy document for his upcoming government, if he wins, which will be unveiled soon, is “dedicated primarily to creating enabling environment for Nigerian youth and women to return to the path of wealth creation and gainful employment”.
Atiku is viewed as to likely win the 2019 general elections.
“Nigeria under Buhari is now the world HQ for extreme poverty. If we are to change that, we must empower women & youths. Therefore, I give an undertaking that if by the grace of God, I am elected by you the good people of Nigeria, at least 40% of my cabinet would be women & youths” Atiku Abubakar; @atiku October 17, 2018
“During my time in government, we designed our policies to help young people grow – stronger banks, telecoms etc. Many returned to Nigeria to start successful businesses.
Today, those young people are leaving again, to Canada etc. We are losing our best doctors & professionals”. Atiku Abubakar; @atiku October 17, 2018
“Our policy document which is ready and will be unveiled soon, is dedicated primarily to creating an enabling environment for Nigerian youth and women to return to the path of wealth creation and gainful employment”. Atiku Abubakar; @atiku October 17, 2018
