Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar declared that if elected president in 2023, he would restructure Nigeria while canvassing for votes from delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo and Osun.
Atiku stated that if elected, he would support restructuring and address the country’s economic crisis by appointing experienced and talented Nigerians to lead his administration, regardless of ethnicity or religion.
Due to his marriage to Titi, his first wife from Ilesa Town, the presidential candidate defined himself as an Osun son and promised to use his experience as a former vice president to address the country’s difficulties. He claimed to restructure Nigeria and revamp the nosediving Nigeria economy.
“There are severe challenges in the country, and we cannot entrust these challenges to somebody who does not have the experience to deal with them.
“My experience and attributes are what I will bring on board to address the disunity and other challenges facing the country,” he said.
He did, however, call for unity among the state’s PDP members.
The candidate said that the PDP lost the state’s last governorship race owing to discord and disagreement inside the party, and that a similar issue was brewing ahead of the governorship poll.
