The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has promised to empower youths if elected later this month.
He made the pledge during the party’s presidential campaign rally at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano State on Thursday.
Atiku also vowed to make Kano state a leading commercial centre in the country and revive agriculture in the area.
Kano, as a city of commerce, finds an appeal in our mission to #RecoverNigeria. Recovery means returning Kano to its place of pride in industry and entrepreneurship.
“We are pleased to meet with you today and we cannot believe that you are so many and in thousands supporting PDP. We have known that Kano is PDP. We thank you for coming out in your numbers to support us,” Atiku said.
On his part, the party’s national chairman Iyorchia Ayu berated the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for its policies, specifically the naira swap.
“They brought another problem, they changed the currency. We did not tell them to change the currency but they did it themselves,” the PDP chief told the crowd.
“They have not thought about how it will affect the poor. But we the PDP will come to rescue Nigeria.”
