Former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has said insecurity under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is the worst in the past 70 years.
Atiku made the remark while lamenting over the state of insecurity and economic hardship in the country under the current government.
Addressing reporters in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Atiku said the PDP has plans to correct such errors.
The former Vice President said PDP would implement policies that would correct the insecurity, economic, and unemployment challenges in the country.
He urged Nigerians to give PDP another chance in 2023.
According to Atiku: “I have never seen insecurity this bad. I am 70 years plus, I have never seen it this bad in terms of security challenges, in terms of economy, in terms of unemployment. This is the worst.
“Why can’t you give us time. We will come up with our policies. We will present them to Nigerians when the time comes.
“We have done that before. Under PDP, we recorded the highest economic growth, the best foreign reserves, we reduced unemployment. You know that we can do it?”
Banditry, kidnapping, and terrorism have gotten to an alarming rate under the Buhari’s administration.
Schools and religious centres have been the target of bandits in the North. Several students and religious leaders and worshippers have been abducted and killed in the Northern part of the country.
In the Southern part of the country, kidnapping has been on the steady increase.
