2019: You have no place to hide as PDP declares war on Buhari


2019: You have no place to hide as PDP declares war on Buhari







The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) practically took the verbal
war in the 2019 presidential campaign to President Muhammadu
Buhari’s strongest support base, the North West, yesterday, when the
opposition party launched its presidential campaign in Sokoto State.






The party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, urged
Nigerians not to fall for Buhari’s deceptions and that of his party, the
All Progressives Congress (APC); in their quest to seek a second term.




Atiku described president Buhari as a ‘failed’ farmer who could only
boast of 150 cows, in his livestock business and that his policies have
not lifted Nigerians out of poverty.




The former vice president spoke in Sokoto, yesterday, when he
addressed party supporters who attended the flag-off of his zonal
campaign rally and presentation of the party presidential flag.



He was accompanied to Sokoto by his running mate, Mr. Peter Obi, and the party apparatchik, led by the immediate past President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, his deputy, Namadi Sambo, former governors, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (Kano), Attahiru Bafarawa (Sokoto), Sule Lamido (Jigawa), Liyel Imoke (Cross River), Ibrahim Shema (Katsina), Gbenga Daniel (Ogun) and Babangida Aliyu (Niger).






Also, Doyin Okupe, Tanimu Turaki, Mukhtar Shagari, BoT chairman,
Senator Jubril Wali, Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku, among other
party stalwarts were at the rally.




There, Atiku said despite failing Nigerians on their campaign
promises, the APC-led government has continued to deceive Nigerians in
their bid to secure a second coming.




“I am a politician, I am a businessman, I am into many things, I am
also a farmer and knows exactly what the problem of Nigerians are. I
have more than 1,000 cows in my farm. Please, we should not allow
someone whose cows have not grown from 150, year in, year out, to come
and tell us lies and propaganda again.”




He promised that if elected as president, his priorities include job creation and bringing peace into country.







Atiku also said his bid for presidential contest was not borne out of
a contest between him and his main challenger, President Muhammadu
Buhari.




He noted that nigerians should see the 2019 presidential election as a choice “between forging ahead for better and remain in deficiting governance.”






Atiku eulogised the political value of the North West.
