The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has described the All Progressives Congress-led administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as a failed government. 

Atiku was a founding member of the APC till 2017 when he defected to join the PDP. 

Atiku, who stated this Thursday in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital said that under his administration, jobs would be created to engage the creative potentials of youths across Nigeria. 

According to him, his administration would set aside $10billion USD to create employment and boost small and medium scale enterprises to help employment drive for youths and women in the country. 

The former Vice President further carpeted the ruling APC over insecurity in the country, saying the Buhari and his ruling party have failed NIgerians in the area of insecurity. 

Atiku, also, bemoaned the state of insecurity and infrastructure decay in the country, noting that Kwara as an example connects both south and north but bad roads have hindered growth in the state. 

Earlier, in his speech, the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa said he was happy with what he had seen in Kwara. 

He said the huge crowd receiving PDP showed that people were very hungry and were ready to drive away hunger. 

He said, “The PDP is ready to create employment and won’t allow our children stay 8 months without going to school. 

“PDP will win in all six geo-political zone of the country. We will work with the people and rebuild Nigeria.” 

Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Iyiorcha Ayu, said “The PDP is one big, united family, we are on our way back to victory. PDP has come back to rescue Nigeria and put it back on development track to rescue all families.” 

“Don’t allow anyone to deceive us; we are hungrier than we were in 2015. Bring out your voters card, come out en mass and vote all PDP candidates especially Atiku in the general elections.”
