Atiku reveals five-point development agenda

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has unfolded a five-point developmental agenda.

The agenda encompasses qualitative education, restructuring to foster true federalism and stability, a dynamic economy for prosperity, safety and security of life and property, and unity in diversity.

Atiku described the proposal as a social contract characterized by short, medium and long-term strategies.

He promised to provide 3 million new jobs and lift 10 million Nigerians out of poverty annually.

The PDP candidate also promised to provide 25,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity and work for the refining capacity of 2 million barrels of crude oil per day.

In the plan, called: My Covenant with Nigerians, the former Vice President described himself as an experienced, courageous and result-focused leader capable of taking the country through a rough situation and making a positive difference.

The 74-page document re-echoes Atiku’s 2019 manifestos with a minor adjustment to reflect proposed solutions to post-2019 challenges.

Atiku is expected to unveil the plan today in Lagos to captains of industry, leaders of commerce and officials of the Nigeria Guild of Editors (NGE), led by its President, Mallam Issah Mustapha.

The former Vice President promised an all-inclusive governance structure to harness national diversity and a just environment where the rights of citizens would be protected.

On corruption, he said if elected, his government would strengthen policies and measures for detecting corruption through a strong technology infrastructure that supports the end-to-end operations of governmental businesses for transparency, accountability, efficiency and effectiveness.

He also promised to enhance whistle-blowing and witness protection policies.
