Few days to the 2023 presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has stated that his ambition to rule the country is not worthy of the blood of any Nigerian.
He revealed this while addressing members of the Rivers State chapter of PDP in Abuja after the suspension of PDP rally in Rivers.
Atiku noted that the PDP rally in Rivers was called off to protect lives and properties of Rivers people.
The former vice president assured that his administration will prioritize women and youth in his plan if he emerged.
“Our campaign and indeed the PDP subscribe fully to the position that no political ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian.
“Rivers State and Rivers people are bound by destiny to be critical stakeholders and beneficiaries of the Atiku/Okowa presidency in multiple ways.
“The uncompleted rail line from Onne Port to join the Port Harcourt–Maiduguri rail line, which has been on the drawing board for decades, will be completed speedily, while the deep seaport in Bonny will receive immediate attention.” he stated.
