Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has vowed that he will carry out the restructuring of the country if elected into power in 2023.
Atiku, also a former Nigeria’s vice-president, who spoke at a meeting with the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Nigeria, discussed his plans for restructuring of Nigeria, enhancing the economy, and how he will tackle the multifaceted security challenges confronting the country at the meeting.
Atiku promised that if he is elected into government in 2023, he would deliver on his promise of restructuring in accordance with one of the demands contained in the charter of CAN presented to him at the Forum.
He noted that though the Buhari administration promised to restructure Nigeria, it has failed to deliver on the promise, but his case will be different if elected into office in 2023.
Atiku told the CAN leadership that if elected, he would tackle insecurity by recruiting more personnel into Nigeria Police Force, with provision of proper equipment for them. He added that while there is the need for constitutional reform to allow for multi-level policing, his administration will start with massive recruitment that will significantly increase the size of security personnel available to protect Nigerians.
He also said that there is the need for judicial reform and review of salaries of judges and judiciary workers. On the issue of indigene-ship, Atiku promised to ensure its removal from the constitution.
He also promised to ensure proper funding of education and tackle youth unemployment.
