The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has promised to restructure Nigeria and give the indigenes and residents of the Federal Capital Territory a greater sense of belonging if elected President come 2023.

He also promised to enhance security nationwide with special attention paid to Abuja because of its special status as the nation’s Capital.

Atiku made the pledge during the PDP Presidential Campaign rally, at Eagle Square Abuja, on Saturday.

While appealing to the people of the FCT to vote for him, Atiku said, “If you give us your support again, we will do more than what we did between 1999 and 2015 for the residents of Abuja.

All your entitlements under the current constitution, all the appointments that belong to Abuja will be given to Abuja. You know that we have done so before and we are going to do so again.

“If what you have demanded requires constitutional review, we assure you that we shall support that constitutional review so that your aspirations are protected and guaranteed in our new constitution.

“More so, we have pledged to restructure this country, in the process of restructuring, we shall give you all that you are demanding. I want to assure you that, and I want to promise you that.

“Currently we have challenges. Can you imagine Abuja not secured? Can you imagine Abuja the federal capital not secured? We shall protect Abuja and secure it for your own safety.“

The PDP candidate further said, “Of course, you are aware of our five point agenda. We shall unify this country. Every part of this country will be given a sense of belonging.

“No part will be sidelined, no part will be marginalised. That is how to bring a sense a unity in a country like Nigeria.

“We have pledged to restore security, it is very very essential that we give everybody peace: a farmer peace to go to the farm, a trader peace to trade, peace to everybody.

“It is only when there is peace that we can undertake our different aspirations.

“We have promised that education is key to youth development. We have the highest number of out of school children.

“We will make sure that these children go back to school. Not only that, we will make sure that our universities reopen forever and ever.
