The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has pledged to improve security in Zamfara, northern Nigeria, if elected Nigeria’s President on February 16, which is the nation’s Presidential election.
Naija News reports that Abubakar, a former Vice President of Nigeria, made this comment on Monday in Zamfara at his presidential campaign.
During the campaign, Abubakar also promised to revamp the Bakolori Dam and put it to effective use.
His words: “Without peace, there won’t be farming activities, no businesses and people cannot even practice their religious beliefs.
“Even though agriculture is the mainstay of the people of the state, farming has virtually been banned by bandits in the state and this situation needs to be put to an end.
“When this is fully taken care of, we will then support the farmers with modern tools and seeds so that businesses can resume in full force,” he said.
Abubakar urged the people to vote for the PDP governorship candidate in Zamfara, Bello Matawalle.
In his remarks, Prince Uche Secondus, the party’s National Chairman, cautioned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Inspector-General of Police to be impartial throughout the elections.
