The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has promised the Southeast people that he will complete the Second Niger Bridge because of his wife who hails from the commercial city of Anambra State.
The PDP presidential candidate, who was accompanied to the campaign field by his running mate Peter Obi and his wife, Jenifer Abubakar, said he was not in Onitsha for a campaign, but to present his wife and deputy, who he said were the real contestants. He said:
“I’m not here to campaign, but to inform you that your son, Peter Obi and your daughter are the real contestants. I’m in the minority.
“You asked me to complete Second Niger Bridge, that I’ll do because of my wife. With Peter Obi as the VP, be rest assured that the roads in the region will be completed too.”
Asking the people to get their permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) ready to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) administration at the February election, Atiku asked them to vote for PDP candidates.
