Former Vice President and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has vowed to end the lingering Boko Haram crisis and herdsmen/farmers’ clashes.
Atiku spoke on Tuesday while addressing PDP supporters in Borno at the Forshams Hall, Maiduguri.
He said “Nigeria ended its civil war in only 2 and half years despite the thick forest in the south-east. I wonder why the war against insurgency took us 9 Years without headway, there must be something wrong somewhere.”
“If elected as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, i will not allow any commander to tell me stories, we must end insurgency within shortest possible time because the insurgency has crippled everything in the Northeast”, he added.
The Waziri Adamawa also promised to address poverty which is prevalent in the Northeast.
Director General, Atiku Campaign Organization, ACO, Gbenga Daniel said the former Vice President and his entourage were in Maiduguri as part of the ongoing consultation tour with PDP stakeholders across the country.
He, therefore, called on the people of the state to give their block votes and massive support to Atiku, who is the only person that will take them to the promised land.
