The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, dangled the carrot of restructuring before South-West residents on Thursday as he pledged that his administration will start the process of restructuring the country within six months of his inauguration.
An average Yoruba believes the restructuring of Nigeria is long overdue to enable each region of the country to develop at its own pace without much interference from Abuja.
Atiku made the pledge on Thursday in Ibadan during the flag off of his campaign in the South West Zone. He also promised to use his business and administrative experience to revive the nation’s economy.
Atiku, who noted that the people of the South West Zone were known for their educational excellence, promised to put in place good educational policies.
Also speaking, the National Chairman of PDP, Chief Uche Secondus, expressed happiness at the turnout, saying it was an indication that the people were ready for a change.
All the National Assembly, governorship and State House of Assemblies candidates of PDP in the South West states attended the rally.
The governorship candidates present were Buruji Kashamu(Ogun), Jimi Agbaje(Lagos) and Seyi Makinde(Oyo).
Former Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti and former Gov. Gbenga Daniel of Ogun were also present.
