“For God’s sake and for the value of this place, ensure that you vote for A… I mean PDP this time around.”
The Cable reports that he assured his supporters of the state of peace once he secure the seat of the president in 2023.

His words; “Yesterday, when we finished with Nasarawa successfully, I was told ‘let’s go back to Abuja’, and I said I won’t go back to Abuja because here is also my home and I have a house here. We came and slept in it.”

“What I want you to understand is that we’ve made a promise that if you vote for PDP, which I’m sure you would, we promise to bring back peace in Plateau.”
Ensuring development in Plateau state

Also promising to bring development to the state as a president, the PDP flag bearer his administration will boost the economy of Plateau to create jobs and business opportunities.

The vice president had earlier defected from the PDP to the APC shortly before the 2015 election. He later rejoined the PDP in December 2017 to vie for the seat of presidency in 2019.

Since then Atiku has remained in the opposition party with the hope to emerge victorious in the 2023 presidential election.
