58 governorship candidates step down for Wike

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s has said, he will adhere to the rule of law if elected president.
Atiku who spoke yesterday at a PDP rally held at the Adokiye Amasiemeka Stadium in Port Harcourt, also promised to protect the constitution, project the principle of the Rule of Law and the sanctity of the judiciary.
The former Vice President also promised to uphold peace and unity in Nigeria and declared that Nigerians were no longer willing to fight each other, but are desirous of jobs and development.
Alhaji Atiku accused President Muhammadu Buhari’ of instigating violence by making comments that are capable of causing blood shedding in the land. Do you know what the President said on Sunday at Zamfara?
The President said that Zamfara people should pray for rain fall, pray that we eat ‘belle full’ and then we can make trouble. Is that what a president should say? How can a president preach violence?
“The President is preaching violence. This is not the first time he is saying that adding that Nigerians want peace; we want development; we want jobs; we are not going to allow anybody to knock our heads together, we are going to use our ballot paper to vote him out” he added.
Atiku also said that the country under Buhari’s leadership has not made any progress and promised that “I will not interfere with the affairs of the National Assembly. We will not interfere with the affairs of the judiciary that is our checks and balances.
He re-echoed his readiness to restructure the country so that the component States will develop at their own pace. “We must restructure Nigeria so that States like Rivers and Niger Delta can develop. When were in office (Obadanjo/Atiku), we started work on the East/West Road that road has been abandoned because PDP was not allowed to continue in office” the PDP hopeful said.
“APC government has not done anything for the people of Rivers State or the Niger Delta. When I become president, I will complete the East/West highway”.
Also speaking, former President Goodluck Jonathan, urged Nigerians to vote for all the PDP candidates in the coming elections noting that he predicted the present hardship in 2015 but nobody took him serious.
We are not making any progress as a country under Buhari’s leadership. That is why Nigerians must come out on Saturday and vote Atiku Abubakar as president and all the PDP candidates.
Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal said: the president is no more in charge of our country adding that Nigerians must vote out this prison yard type of government because as a country we don’t need an analogue president.
Earlier before Atiku mounted the podium, about 58 governorship candidates from various political parties in Rivers defected to the PDP and adopted Governor Nyesom Wike as their sole governorship candidate for 2019.
