I won’t betray your trust, Atiku tells supporters in Delta


Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has promised residents of Delta state that he won’t betray their trust if he is elected.


Speaking on Tuesday during his party’s presidential campaign rally at the Stephen Keshi stadium in Asaba, the Delta capaital, Atiku said he will tackle insecurity and revamp the economy.


“We are here to show our gratitude and appreciation to say that we are with you in all respects because of the support we have received from you from 1999 to date,” Atiku said.


“All through my political journey, Delta state has always supported me and I want to promise you that I shall not betray the trust of Delta and the entire Niger Delta.


“That is why in my modest appreciation, I chose one of you as my vice-presidential candidate and you know that a running mate is always a stepping stone.


“Therefore, it is up to you to show your support by giving Governor Okowa the massive support to enable us to rescue and rebuild our dear country.


“The Niger Delta and other parts of the country will benefit from our resource control and restructuring agenda because it is our intention to devolve more powers to the states and local governments to tackle peculiar challenges facing the people.


“The APC government has disunited Nigeria in all aspects and it is our commitment to restore the unity of this country by ensuring that every part of this country has a sense of belonging.


“You must believe in PDP because as a party, we built the biggest economy in Africa until the APC came and destroyed it in 2015. Why vote for the same party that has suffered us in the last seven years plus? Let us vote them out to unite and rebuild our country again.”
