The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has asked young Nigerians to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari if they got new jobs and a better life in the last four years.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shuaibu, the former Vice-President urged Nigerians to vote for the PDP if their lives had gone worse in the last four years of APC government.
The Punch reports that Atiku said after Buhari worsened the level of poverty in the country, he (Buhari) does not deserve to ask Nigerians for another chance.
The statement read in part, “The truth is that, there is no country in the world where a president with this appalling record could ever be re-elected.
“Over 100 million Nigerians cannot afford even one decent meal a day, yet their President is seeking re-election.
“The world powers as well as Nigerians also have intelligence that Buhari will decisively lose the elections since the people are angry because they are hungry and have no jobs.
“There is no level of rigging that this vile government could ever do to overturn the millions of Nigerians who will turn up at the polls to vote him out.
“We ask our dearest young population who got a job under Buhari in the last four years to vote for Buhari.
“But all those who lost their jobs and whose relations lost their jobs and businesses to his maladministration should please come out in large numbers to elect Atiku Abubabar, who is a harbinger of job creation.”
