Titi Atiku-Abubakar, wife of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday stressed that her husband assembled the economic teams to reposition Nigeria’s economy during the Obasanjo administration.
Mrs Atiku-Abubakar’s statement followed knocks by a former minister in the Obasanjo era, Oby Ezekwesili, that Atiku, the former Vice President, was not in charge of the economic team.
Speaking at a town hall meeting for women in Ikeja, she said, “He (Atiku) has done it before and he will do it again. It is only the person that knows the road that can show the way. Don’t allow a blind man to lead you.”
Mrs Atiku-Abubakar also said her husband will not renege on promises of ensuring better life for Nigerians if elected.
She said, “My husband, Atiku Abubakar, has a covenant with Nigerians. He promised his life to do so much for Nigeria because Nigeria has done so much for him.
“Because of this, he has five agenda. He is a unifier, he wants to unify Nigeria. Atiku wants insecurity in Nigeria to stop and Atiku wants to restructure Nigeria. Atiku matches his words with authority.
“Atiku wants to rescue, restore, restructure, rebuild and take Nigeria’s glory to greater heights.
“So, I am pleading with you, do not sell your birthrights and the generation yet unborn. Vote the PDP on February 25 and March 11.
“My husband, Atiku Abubakar, is a good product to sell. If not, I won’t be bold to come here to sell him. Only Atiku can do it. Do not be deceived.
“If you vote Atiku, you have voted for me, your daughter and I will not forget you.”
According to her, if Atiku is elected, she would begin a project known as SHE – Security, Health and Education.
She said that if her husband won the February 25 election, the Lagos state PDP governorship candidate, Abdul-Azeez Adediran (Jandor), would emerge victorious on March 11.
