The Presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has described his running mate, Peter Obi as an honest man.
Abubakar, who made this comment on Thursday, added that the former Anambra Governor is reputed for his very high sense of fiscal responsibility and transparency while in governance.
This was as the Presidential candidate vowed to “galvanize all efforts to liberate the nation from the shackles of hunger, deprivations, killing, and divisiveness” if elected President in 2019.
Abubakar gave the assurance while speaking at a meeting with members of the PDP National Working Committee, NWC, in Abuja, as reported in a statement issued by the spokesperson of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan.
Stressing that his “expected victory” in 2019 would be a victory for the people, the Wazirin Adamawa commended Nigerians for their commitment and sacrifices toward rescuing the nation from misrule, adding that such sacrifices will not be in vain.
His words: “Our aim is to work very hard and collectively liberate our nation from the shackles of hunger, starvation, deprivation, bloodletting, killings and division which bedevil us today. We must all work hard to return our nation to the path of harmony, peace and progress.”
The former vice president also assured of a “new template for fiscal responsibility and productivity in all critical sectors of our national life”.
Abubakar also pointed out that he has a “running mate that was honest and reputed to have a very high sense of fiscal responsibility and transparency in governance.”
