Former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, says if elected, 70 per cent of his appointments will go to youths and women.
Abubakar made this comment on Wednesday in Yola while addressing a group of youths who organised a solidarity rally to endorse his candidature.
Speaking further, the PDP candidate said 40 per cent of appointments would go to youths, while 30 per cent would go to women.
His words: “The remaining 30 per cent will be managed by the elderly,” the former Vice President said.
While pleading with the youths to vote for PDP for a better life, the Wazirin Adamawa noted that their votes were vital for his victory as they constituted 70 per cent of the nation’s voting population.
“This election is for you; youths and women as you made up 70 per cent of Nigerian population of voting age.
“As for me, I have achieved in life, but many of you have a long way to go; you have no house, no job. If you fail to vote PDP you will continue like that.
“On Election Day, go and vote, protect your votes and ensure your votes count,” he said.
