Barely five weeks to the presidential election, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has called on the people of Plateau State and Nigerians in general to ensure they protect their votes, saying the ruling APC is not campaigning but strategising on how to rig the polls.
Atiku disclosed this while addressing a mammoth crowd at the Polo field in Jos, the Plateau State capital, during the party’s presidential campaign rally.
“My brothers and sisters of Plateau State, I want to promise you, if you vote for PDP, we are going to restore peace and unity in the state.
“We will sit down with leaders of all the communities, religious groups in the state, and make sure that we restore peace and unity in the state. So that the state will continue to be known as the economic hub of the middlebelt.
“Secondly, the PDP government will ensure the provision of jobs and business entrepreneurship for those who cannot work.”
The PDP presidential candidate added, “I want to appeal to you to vote for PDP, and remain at your polling units after voting so that they do not still your votes; because the APC is not campaigning, they are not communicating with you, all they want to do is to steal the election and we will not allow them to do that.
“Let me appeal to you, don’t allow yourself to be deceived, vote PDP from top to bottom, vote PDP all the way,” Atiku stressed.
