Atiku Tells Supporters What To Do To Get Appointments, Contracts

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, warned party members on Wednesday that they must win their voting booths if they want posts and contracts in his administration if he is elected President.

Atiku stated that any member of the party interested in entering his cabinet or receiving a contract in his administration must win his or her polling booth on February 25.

Atiku announced this during a town hall meeting with stakeholders and party members in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.

Atiku’s entourage included the party’s National Chairman, Iyocha Ayu; former Senate President, Bukola Saraki; former Vice President, Namadi Sambo; former governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola; and Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke.


Others were Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwa, Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel, former Cross River State Governor Lyel Imoke, former Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido, Ogun State Governor Ladi Adebutu, and Lagos State Governor Jide Adeniran (Jandol).

The former Vice President stated that if party members want the PDP to return to power on May 29, they must all return to their respective constituencies and work for the party to win the election.

Atiku said, “The fact that you (party members) are following the gubernatorial candidate or the senatorial candidate or the House of Representatives candidate or the presidential candidate to campaigns is no qualification that you will get an appointment.

“It is not a qualification that you will get a contract whether at the local government level, state or the federal level.

“The only way, as far as I’m concerned, if I’m President, if you come and say you want a job or you want a contract, I will ask you to let me have the result of your polling booth.

“And that is what I’m going to direct to everybody because unless we do that, we will not win the elections.


“You are all members of the PDP and supporters of the PDP, you want PDP to return to power, please I beg of you, make sure you win your polling booths.

“You cannot be following the governor or Senator all over the place and then you don’t win your polling booth and you come and say you want to be a minister or you want to get this contract.

“So please, as members of our party let us make sure that we go back to our constituencies and make sure that we deliver our polling units.”

Atiku stated that if he wins the election, he will be able to carry out his plans to retool the country for greatness, and that party members must mobilize the people and ensure PDP wins in their polling booths.

He advised members not to be complacent by simply supporting the party’s candidates, but to work hard to deliver the party in the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections.


Atiku told the crowd that if elected, his administration would broaden the scope of the economy in order to raise people’s living standards and create more jobs.

He reminded that the PDP-led government built Nigeria’s economy to be the greatest in Africa between 1999 and 2015, and vowed that his administration would not only revive but also sustainably build the ailing economy.

The PDP presidential candidate further stated that his administration, in collaboration with international partners, would support and expand primary health care centers to ensure that people at the grassroots have access to quality healthcare.
