I’ll Complete 2nd Niger Bridge Because Of My Wife, Says Atiku


PEOPLE’S Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has promised the Southeast people that he will complete the Second Niger Bridge.
Atiku, who made the promise yesterday at the party’s mega campaign rally in Onitsha, said he would ensure its quick completion because of his wife, who hails from the commercial city of Anambra.
He also promised to ensure the completion and construction of roads in the region with the assistance of his running mate, Mr. Peter Obi.
Atiku, who was accompanied to the campaign field by Obi and his wife, Jenifer Atiku Abubakar, said he was not in Onitsha to campaign, but to present his wife and deputy, who he said were the real contestants.
“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,” the candidate said.
Asking the people to get their permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) ready to vote out President Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) administration at the February election, Atiku asked them to vote for PDP candidates.
Also speaking, the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who presented the party’s candidates, canvased votes for them at the polls.
During his visit to the Obi of Onitsha, Obi Alfred Achebe, Atiku sought for the blessing of the monarch, which, according to him, would boost his economic dreams for the country.
“Your royal blessing will nurture this quest for new economic direction of our country through new political economy resolve.”
He also assured the monarch that his policy would promote culture and tourism in the country.
Atiku also yesterday vowed to reactivate all ports in Delta State, if elected president.
Atiku, who addressed PDP faithful in the state, was accompanied by his running mate, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Secondus and Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
He said his administration would complete the Federal Government projects abandoned by the APC, adding that the projects were abandoned because the state “is loyal to the PDP”.
Atiku said the Second Niger Bridge would receive priority attention by his administration.
He said his administration would reward the loyalty of Delta State to the PDP since 1999.
His words: “All the projects abandoned by the APC will be completed. This state has suffered marginalisation by the APC because of its loyalty to the PDP. Because you have been loyal, my government will reward your loyalty.”
Atiku accused the APC of engaging in propaganda, adding that the party has reneged on its promises of fixing the Nigerian economy, tackling security and providing jobs for the masses.
