National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus has promised Nigerians that the party would free indigenes and residents of Lagos State from the dungeon of the All Progressives Congress (APC) if the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar is elected as president on February 16. Secondus who made the statement on Tuesday at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Victoria Island during the party’s presidential rally in Lagos, also urged electorate in the State to give the PDP Candidate, Jimi Agbaje a chance to free Lagos from the strangle of the APC leadership, whom according to him have held the state hostage since 1999. “I urge you to vote for the PDP, Lagos has been in bondage since 1999 and you can rest assured that the PDP and Atiku will free this State from the emperor”, the party chairman said. Secondus said that Atiku possesses the vision, goodwill and mandate to liberate Lagos and Nigeria from the economic difficulties Nigerians are undergoing at the moment. He also assured Nigerians that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would stand by the principles of the people and would never deviate from their promises in a bid to restore the lost glory of the nation. Speaking to the party supporters, Atiku assured that his administration would restructure, provide jobs and create a better economy for Nigerians if elected as President in the February 16 election He promised to fulfill his campaign manifesto and continue to respect the rule of law. He charged Nigerians to disassociate themselves from the APC’s false blueprint that has destroyed the economy of the nation and paved way for total loss of jobs. “I am a Lagosian. Let me assure the people of Lagos and Nigerians generally that I am not like the APC, when I promise something I will do it. I promise Nigerians that I am going to create jobs. I have already been creating jobs and I will continue to create jobs for you. “APC said they will create jobs but we have been losing jobs. These are not people you can trust. APC said they are going to secure this country but when they came there have been some high level of insecurity in the country, most especially in the North East and North Central where they are killing Nigerians. “They said they are going to provide better economy for Nigerians but today we are the headquarters of poverty in the world. I promise you, I am going to revert all these. “Let me assure you that I am going to respect the institutions of our constitution. I will work with the National Assembly. I will protect the judiciary and respect the rule of law. If you elect me as president you will see a different Lagos and it will be free again. “Look at what they have done on our roads that are not moving for traffic. But on the day the president was coming to Lagos, they cleared all the trucks, tankers and containers causing traffic on the roads. So you can see why you need to vote for PDP all the way in the forthcoming elections.” Adding her voice to the campaign, wife of the PDP presidential candidate, Titi Atiku, says Nigerian masses have suffered enough under the regime of the APC. Mrs Atiku said the only way the commoners could be freed from the current mess they are in is by voting for her husband as the next president of the country. According to her, Atiku is a workaholic and an employer of labour, therefore voting for him as the next president would be a turning point for all Nigerians.
