2019: I Have Only 'Policies' For You Not 'Promises' - Atiku
"Are you better off than you were 4 years ago? Are you richer or poorer?"
That's the question the PDP's presidential candidate would like you to answer as you dust your PVCs and prepare for February 16, 2019.
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has shared his plans and policies with Nigerians as he formally flagged of his campaign on Monday via Facebook.
Mr. Abubakar said he would be interested in building Nigeria along side other Nigerians bearing in mind that he is just one man without the support of the people.
"I believe in setting goals and coming up with realistic plans and policies to achieving those goals.
"To me, leadership is about the discipline to commit to ones goals until they become a reality.
"I have succeeded in running my own private businesses which now employ over 50,000 Nigerians because I believe in policies and I have the discipline to stay with them until they become reality.
"It is my desire to run for the office of President of Nigeria not because I have a bag full of promises but because I am prepared to lead", he said.
On his plans to make Nigeria great again, Mr. Abubakar shared his personal experience on what he has done in the past while he served as leader of Nigeria's economic revolution team during the administration of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo
"Over the last 18 months I have worked with the best experts Nigeria has to offer on policies that will get Nigeria Working Again.
"I am not talking about what I can do. I am talking about what I have done before", he added.
In addition, Mr Abubakar spoke about his 6-fold plan for Nigeria's youth, women and children.
- A plan that will give Nigerian workers a living wage
- A plan that will give Nigeria's youth world-class education
- A plan that will empower Nigerian women while reducing maternal mortality and increasing their financial stability
- A plan to cater for the elderly so our people will not be afraid of going old
- A plan that will invest in our failing infrastructure
- A plan that will help create jobs.
