The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has advised Lagos residents to take their destinies into their own hands by voting for the party in 2023.
While flagging off the PDP Presidential Rally at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos, the former vice president said that PDP would put in place a people’s government as against the “family government” being practised in the state.
“It is time for you, the people of Lagos, to liberate yourself from a family government to the people’s government, which is to be led by “Jandor“, the Lagos State PDP Governorship Candidate.
“For the people of Lagos, it is high time you took your destiny into your own hands for your own future.
“It is right and it is your duty to take back that governance and hand it over to yourselves. That is what the PDP is out for”, Atiku stated.
Speaking further, he added that if he becomes president in 2023, his team would revamp the economy, strengthen the security and restructure the country to position it on the path of sustainable growth and development.
“On my own hand, if you elect me as your president, I said and I mean it, by the grace of God, I am going to set aside $10 billion so that we can empower our young men and women in small and medium enterprises.
“People were asking me where will I get $10 billion. If I privatize the Port Harcourt refinery, Warri refinery and Kaduna refinery, I am going to get the money.
“Let me also promise you, if you elect the PDP government, we are going to restructure this country.
“We will give your state and local governments more powers and resources. It is up to you to hold them responsible.”
