The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has assured Nigerians of job creation and security if elected in 2019.

Abubakar, a former Vice President, promised to create jobs through the development of Agriculture and Small and Medium Enterprises within the North Central region.

Speaking during PDP’s presidential campaign rally in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Wednesday, the Waziri of Adamawa also promised to deal with the crisis between farmers and herdsmen.

According to Abubakar, “As we begin our regional campaigns today, I want to remind all Nigerians of my commitment to you and the future of our nation to create JOBS: Jobs, Opportunity, Being united and Security.

“As our campaign train moves to Kwara State, one of our key priorities remains JOBS, JOBS, JOBS through development of agriculture and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises within the region.

“Key on our priority also is the resolution of subsisting issues of insecurity in the region including the farmer-herder conflicts. These we will deal with using improved intelligence, diplomacy, promotion of good neighbourliness – with support from the traditional institutions.

“This is what the APC are doing. They are buying PVCs, they will come to you and give you N10, N20, N50 to buy your PVC – they are buying your future. Do you want to sell your future? Don’t sell your PVCs because they are going to use it against you.

“In terms of corruption, Nigeria is worse of today than we were in 2014. In terms of economy, we are the poorest country in the world today. In terms of insecurity, we are most insecure than at any other time in our history.

“It is time to return Nigeria to PDP, because the best years of this country was when the PDP was governing our country from 1999-2015.

“Today we have listened to the failures of the APC government since 2015 till today. There is nothing they have not promised us, they promised us security, jobs and better economy, they failed. Whatever they promised, they failed.

“Thank you very much, my brothers and sisters, of the North Central zone.”
