The wife of the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mrs. Titi Abubakar, on Wednesday called on the women in Ondo State to vote for her husband, Atiku Abubakar, in the forthcoming presidential election.
Mrs. Abubakar said the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed the country and was desperate to win the election at all cost, urging people to reject the government of the All Progressive Congress (APC) with their votes.
The wife of the former Vice President stated this while addressing women at the secretariat of the PDP in Akure, the state capital.
According to her, Atiku had a good plan for the country, especially women and youths.
She said, “I want to appeal to our women and youths to vote for Atiku, he has plans for you in his cabinet if he is elected as the President of this country. Our youths have turned to beggars and miscreants on the streets as a result of joblessness.
“All the things they (APC) promised are not fulfilled, there is serious hunger in the land, and they have no solution to it. Their government has failed.
“Anybody that performed well in the office will be returned, but in their (APC) own case, they have performed woefully, they cannot return. Despite their failure, they are still desperate to return, we should reject them with our votes. And I know God will not allow them to return”
“Atiku will provide jobs, he has promised youths and women 40 per cent representation in his cabinet and I know he will do it if he is elected.”
Abubakar, who also visited the leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, urged market women and youths in the state not to sell their Permanent Voter Cards, alleging that some APC members were going around buying PVCs.
