The presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has reminded the President,Muhammadu Buhari of the promise he made to Nigerians in 2015 telling them to choose another leader if he failed as a president to provide 3 million jobs.
Atiku noted that the country had been stagnated under Buhari’s leadership.
Atiku spoke through the Director General of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Gbenga Daniel, when he appeared on Channels TV on Sunday Politics.
He said President Buhari had failed to deliver his contract on job creation.
Daniel recalled that Buhari had during the 2015 campaigns, promised to provide about three million jobs for Nigerians.
He explained that Atiku was the best man for the job creation.
“Nigeria is not working and I want to start by quoting what the current president said in one of his tweets, specifically, I think this was sometime in March 2015 just before the election, he promised Nigerians Jobs, he said he was going to create additional jobs and he said and I quote, ‘If I do not fulfil my promises, you have the power to decide who leads you and how they lead you.’
“Part of what is key for us is provision of jobs and my submission is if the contract that Buhari had with the people is that he will create jobs, then he has failed to deliver that contract.
“Going forward, in Atiku Abubakar, we clearly have a better person, we clearly have someone who has better exposure to all the facets of this country.
“We have someone who is very much at home anywhere,” he said.
