The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday berated the All Progressives Congress, saying steps taken by the APC since 2015 had ended in failure.
He declared that the party was on a rescue mission to save Nigeria from further sinking.
Speaking at the North-Central zonal presidential campaign rally held at the Metropolitan Square, Ilorin, Atiku said the APC had misgoverned the country by making promises which were not fulfilled.
He stated, “In 2015, the APC promised us security which they failed to provide. They promised us food on our table, but today we are hungry. They promised us good health facility and adequate supply of drugs in our hospitals which they failed to do. They promised to fight corruption but worsen the system.
“Every step they take is a failure. In terms of corruption, they are the worst; in the provision of security, they have failed; they failed to create jobs for our teeming youths and today, inflation has taken over. In 2014, Hajj fare was N600,000 but in 2018, it has jumped to N1.5m, food prices have gone up and they continue to tell the people of this country lies.”
