The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said that every negative thing now happens in the Nigeria of today.
The former vice-president, who stated this at the on-going 2022 Annual General Meeting of the Nigerian Bar Association, (NBA) in Lagos, stated that since the return of democracy in 1998/99, Nigeria had never experienced this level of poverty, insecurity and unemployment.
Atiku said, “Nigeria has never found itself in such a very, very critical point in our history. Today, we have had all the negative indices. Today, we are all disunited in the nation. We have never experienced this level of poverty. We have never experienced this state of insecurity. We have never experienced this level of unemployment. We have recognised all these negative developments in our history”.
The Wazirin Adamawa added that history now beckoned on Nigerians to tackle the negative developments.
Atiku had also posted on his Twitter page yesterday, saying that he was at the NBA conference to give lawyers insights into his bold policy. “I used the opportunity of the first plenary session of the 62nd NBA conference to give Nigerian lawyers an insight into my bold policy framework that embodies Unity, Security, Economy, Education and Devolution of power to states and local governments.
”Known by the acronym of Unity-SEED. I stressed how interconnected these five policy prescriptions are. I assured them that a new Nigeria of our dreams is possible in the hands of a bold man of experience -AA,” he tweeted.
The conference, themed: “BOLD Transitions”, is scheduled to hold between August, 19 to 26.
