Atiku Starts Campaign Monday, to Issue Policy Document

Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has said that his decision to kick start his campaign with a policy document on Monday is to adhere to his promise to run an issue-based campaign ahead the 2019 presidential election.
A statement by the Atiku Campaign Organisation, on Sunday, said: “In the address, the PDP flag bearer will present his vision for Nigeria and his action plan to achieve it as encapsulated in his policy document.
“The document will promptly be uploaded on his website for all Nigerians to access at no cost.
“The decision of Atiku Abubakar to kick-start his presidential campaign with the launch of his policy document is to reiterate his commitment to run an issue-based campaign
“The intention is to take our policy directly to Nigerians and to register the belief of Atiku that it will take the collective efforts of every Nigerian to rebuild the country. That is why we want Nigerians to access the policy directly and ultimately take ownership of it.
“Our campaign offers a simple message: united, the people of Nigeria can begin anew, creating a prosperous and secure future and a better life for every Nigerian.
“On the first working day of the campaign, the PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will put forward his plan to get Nigeria working again.
“We have chosen to do this by having the PDP presidential candidate speaking directly to the Nigerian people on Facebook. This medium came about as part of the telecommunications revolution that he helped start as Vice President in 1999-2007.
“We have also chosen to have our candidate speak online as it facilitates the ability for anyone to download a copy of his policy document at no cost, as we intend this to be the policy of every Nigerian,” the statement read in part.
Atiku, the statement added, will focus on creating jobs, ensuring security, growing business, developing power and water infrastructure, agriculture and education and how we will empower women.
“Our policies outline the goals and methods for developing and revitalising Nigeria as the foundation of our campaign.
“This policy document is being launched to encourage a dialogue with the people of Nigeria, inviting everyone to join us in helping to get Nigeria working again.
“The PDP presidential candidate looks forward to conducting vital discussions as he travels across the length and breadth of Nigeria, meeting and talking with stakeholders: farmers, small business people, workers, students, mothers, and children,” the statement continued.”
