The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus on Monday, while campaigning for the presidential flag bearer in Ekiti state has said that President Mohammadu Buhari could not deliver on his campaign promises which he made over three years before assuming office because he was, “A sleeping president” and “Has no energy that is why the economy has collapsed.”
Secondus affirmed that the Peoples Democratic Party would win the presidential elections come February 16, and encouraged Nigerians to vote Atiku because, “Atiku has energy and can work 24 hours a day not the one that would work for three years.”
“Do you know why economy has collapsed?, why hunger is in the land?, your President is a sleeping President, he has no energy that is why the economy has collapsed, we are coming with Atiku who has energy and can work 24 hours a day not the one that would work for three years.
“This government of APC wants to rig election but we want to tell you that they cannot rig the coming elections because the world will focus on Nigeria. So we are going to win this election, look at Atiku, he is tested and trusted in public and private sectors. He is a man that can turn economy around and he has the energy for the job.”
The presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar also spoke and re-assured the peoples of Ekiti that he would remember them, and deliver on his campaign promises,“The good people of Ekiti State, APC has stolen all your jobs, now they want to steal your votes, they did it in Ekiti, Osun, Ogun and Bauchi states.
“This state has always been a PDP. When we paid a courtesy call to Ewi of Ado, he said he wants us to build the roads, we will complete all federal projects not completed. We will restore standard and quality education, so we can give you jobs.
“APC don’t know how to create jobs and don’t know how to give, 40 percent of our portfolios will go to youths while 30 percent will go to women and that is 70 for youths and women. We know how to do it and we have done it before we will do it again.”
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, also spoke in favour of Atiku, and urged Ekiti people especially the youths. to endorse Atiku.
