The People’s Democratic Party Presidential candidate of the 2019 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar says he is committed to fix the ailing Nigerian economy.
Atiku said this on Wednesday during a meeting with Igbo leaders in Enugu.
Punch reports that he said that he was worried about developments in the country as well as the future of the country and the legacies that would be left for generations unborn.
My commitment is to fix this country. I think of the future this country will have, if I do not struggle to fix it.
“Our economy must be fixed and you can trust me and Mr Peter Obi to do it,” he said.
Atiku said that he was worried about the state of infrastructure in the South East, especially the condition of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu.
“I am always scared coming to Enugu because of the state of the runway of the airport. What does it take to fix the runway? A local government council can fix it if they are made viable,” he said.
Abubakar said that the issue of restructuring the country was already settled, adding that he would not be talking about it.
He said, “I am a product of a restructured Nigeria. So it is a settled issue,
“We need to mobilise ourselves and vote for a ticket that will restructure Nigeria.
The elder statesman Prof Ben Nwabueze embraced Atiku signalling the support and endorsement for the presidential candidate.
