40% of my cabinet will be women, youths - Atiku





Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP), says 40 percent of his cabinet will be made up
of women and youths.




The former vice-president said his policy document for Nigeria, if he wins the 2019 election, is ready.

He added that Nigeria became the world headquarter for poverty under incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.



“Nigeria
under Buhari is now the world HQ for extreme poverty. If we are to
change that, we must empower women & youths,” Atiku said.



“Therefore,
I give an undertaking that if by the grace of God, I am elected by you
the good people of Nigeria, at least 40% of my cabinet would be women
& youths.”



The former customs officer, who has attempted to run for president five times, said his policy document will be unveiled soon.



“During
my time in government, we designed our policies to help young people
grow – stronger banks, telecoms etc. Many returned to Nigeria to start
successful businesses.



“Today, those young people are leaving again, to Canada etc. We are losing our best doctors & professionals.



“Our
policy document which is ready and will be unveiled soon, is dedicated
primarily to creating an enabling environment for Nigerian youth and
women to return to the path of wealth creation and gainful employment.”



Atiku won the PDP presidential primaries on October 6, becoming the major opposition to Buhari’s second term plans.
