Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says he will deliver on his promises if elected.
The former vice-president said this at a campaign rally in Lagos on Tuesday.
Atiku, who stands as a major contender to incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, said unlike the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), he would fulfill promises he made on restructuring and job creation.
“Let me assure the people of Lagos and south-west, you know I am not like APC , when I promise something, I will do it,” he said.
“When I say I’m going to do something, I am going to do it. I promise Nigerians that I am going to restructure this country and I am going to do it. I promise Nigerians that I am going to create jobs, I have already been creating jobs and I will create these jobs for you.
“APC said they were going to create jobs, we have been losing jobs and we have the largest unemployment in the history of our country. These are not people you can trust. APC said they were going to secure this country, when they came, we had insecurity in only the north-east, today we have insecurity in north-west and north-central.
“They have failed again. They said they are going to revive our economy, today we are the headquarters of poverty in the world. I promise you I am going to reverse all these.”
Atiku added that as president, he would respect the institutions and rule of law, work with the national assembly, and protect the judiciary.
Buhari’s presidency has not been in good term with the leadership of the legislative arm, and recently the president also suspended the chief justice of Nigeria— a development that had been condemned by the opposition.
