Atiku Can Unite Nigeria, Fight Insecurity- Saraki
2019 Election is About the People, Not Buhari or Atiku- Bukola Saraki
The senate president made this known during the launch of the 2019 PDP presidential election campaign on Monday, in Sokoto.
According to him, the people of the Northwest region coming out in mass for the campaign, shows they support Atiku.
“The man that can bring food to the table, the man that can fight security, the man that can unite Nigeria is Atiku Abubakar.
“I ask one young man, why has North West now become PDP, he said in 2015 security problem was only in the North East but today, the security problem is not only in the North East. No security in North West.
“The young man said ‘we are going to vote for PDP’. I said why, he said, ‘Oga there is no food. There is hunger. In the time of PDP, there was no hunger. That is why we are voting PDP,”he said.
Speaking at the campaign, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, said the 2019 election is not about or between Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari but a contest of the people.
Dogara said the election is about the people, adding that the PDP has come to make situations better and uplift the life of Nigerian citizens.
“Now, they will deceive you to say that this election is about Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari. But, the election is not between the two of them. The election is about you, it’s about you women, it is about you, the young people of Nigeria. It is about every Nigerian citizen who is suffering untold hardship on account of lack of leadership.
“So, we want to review a lot of things. For instance is your lives better now than in 2015? Is security better now than it was in 2015? Are we more united now in Nigeria than we were in 2015? So, these are the things that are on the ballot paper.
“It is not a contest between Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
