The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Thursday said his administration would embark on the restructuring of the country, if he emerges Nigeria’s President in this year’s general election.
He stated this during his presidential campaign at Pa Ngele Oruta Township Stadium, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

He said: “From the inception of our democracy, Ebonyi has continued to be PDP. APC is an alliance and not a political party. It is collapsing. You have no business voting for APC.
“I am committed. All the southern states have been yearning for restructuring. We are with you entirely. APC is a deceptive party.”
He assured that his administration would better the lot of women and youths in the country.
“We are here to bring you up. We want you to succeed us. You must be hardworking. If you are work hard you can be anything. The next government will be for the youths and women. We will give you the opportunity to succeed,” he said.
The PDP presidential candidate who promised to align with the people of the zone to end their outcry noted that to move the country forward, the demands, yearnings and aspiration of the people of the different zones of the country must be listened to and a constructive dialogue engaged.
He expressed concern over the level of insecurity, bad governance and economic failures witnessed under the administration of the APC led administration in the country.
Mr Atiku assured that with the coming on board of the PDP administration in 2023, the people of the zone will witness great change.
He noted that he has all it takes to reposition the country, revive the economy, ensure an end to the insecurity challenges in the country adding that only a competent leader can turn the country around.
National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorcha Ayu attributed the achievements recorded in Ebonyi State to the quality leadership of the PDP administrations and called on the people to continue to support the party.
He thanked the people of the state for coming out in their numbers to support the party and promised the people of the readiness of the party to ensure that it fulfills all its presidential campaign promises after its victory at the polls.
The Presidential campaign rally witnessed a large turnout of PDP supporters who were at the stadium to declare their support for the candidates of the party.
