Atiku Says He Is Going To Be A Stepping Stone To An Igbo President

Atiku stated this while addressing party supporters during his campaign rally in Awka the Anambra State capital.

He, therefore, called for the region’s support for his aspiration.

“I am going to be a stepping stone to an Igbo president in this country. I have shown it in my action because this is the third time I am running with an Igbo man. If you really want to produce a president, then vote Atiku-Okowa ticket,” the former vice president told the gathering.

“I want to thank you, the people of Anambra State, for this warm reception I never thought I will see such a crowd in Anambra State, and believe me, we are not going to forget you, we are going to reward you handsomely.”

Atiku also promised to revive industries in the region, vowing to dredge the River Niger to boost economic activities.

“On our arrival today, we visited their Governor Prof. Soludo, and he said to me: ‘I know you are going to work but make sure that all the federal roads that pass through Anambra State are reconstructed’,” he said.

“And I promised him, I’m going to do that. He said ‘Make sure that you control our erosion because Anambra is the erosion headquarters of the world. Erosion is destroying our farmlands, destroying our houses and everything we have.’

“This is a very gigantic project. And I promised him I’m going to do that, and you know I have worked with Soludo before, he is a first-class patriotic Nigerian.
“You have an excellent governor. He also appealed to me about the Onisha Port and I said this time around we are going to dredge River Niger and Onisha Port will function.

“We are also going to help Anambra industrialise the state so that the state will create as many jobs for our young men and women.

“And you know, I promised to set aside $10 billion to promote small-scale and medium enterprise for our young men and women so that they can be independent.”

Atiku’s running mate Ifeanyi Okowa, who accompanied him to the rally, said the PDP chieftain is the best option for Nigeria.

“Our party has brought out Atiku Abubakar as our presidential candidate,” the Delta State governor said.

“We ask all of you to work hard in Anambra state because Atiku Abubakar is a good product. Among all the aspirants, only Atiku Abubakar has the requisite experience to recover the country from the hardship created by the APC government.”

In other news, Kanyi Daily reported how the Ogun State Police Command arrested a 49-year-old man for bathing with blood with the claim it was to solve a spiritual problem.

The man, Ganiyu Shina of No 4, Oguji street, Obantoko Abeokuta, was bathing in the blood at a community river in the kotopo area of Odeda local government.
