The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, will within the first six months of his administration if elected as the president of Nigeria restructure the country up to 80 per cent it requires, a former governor of Enugu State, Okwesilieze Nwodo, has said.
Nwodo, who was speaking on behalf of Atiku at the Atiku-Okowa Diaspora Campaign Grand Finale, held at the Shehu Yar’adua Centre on Friday in Abuja, disclosed this.
Nwodo said, “Within six months of taking office, he (Atiku) would have done 80 per cent of the restructuring this country needs. This has been worked out and waiting to be sworn in on May 29 and will be rolled out.”
Nwodo, who is the Deputy Director, Research and Strategy of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, further said the five-point agenda in the policy document of the former vice president would serve as a rally point for the recovery of the country as there was over-dependence on the Federal Government.
On disunity and security, the former governor stressed that in the 16 years of the PDP government the country witnessed peace, where every flash point of insecurity was nipped in the bud.
“Now, when you talk about security, (Atiku is) somebody who sat as vice president of Nigeria and was in a government that provided security and we are satisfied and happy with its 16 years of the PDP administration particularly the first 8 years, we never had this kind of insecurity. Where there were flash points, that administration nipped things in the bud,” he said.
