Rebuilding, comprehensive government'll address IPOB, Niger Delta issues, say Atiku, Okowa


Atiku Abubakar, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, and his running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, said on Sunday night that restructuring and an all-inclusive government would address the agitations of the Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and the Niger Delta militancy.

The former Vice President stated in response to questions during the Channels TV Town Hall program that restructuring would grant the region autonomy in such a way that there would be no need for agitation.

He also said that in 2007, he had tried to implement some measures to end the militancy in the Niger Delta, but he had to give the idea to President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, who passed away in 2007.

Okowa stated in his remarks that the issue would also be resolved by Atiku's all-inclusive government.

Atiku stated in response to questions regarding whether security votes for governors or even the president should be eliminated:

He continued, "What is required is ensuring accountability, which is absent right now." We can't ignore the abuses that have taken place. For that reason I'm supporting responsibility to guarantee that what is casted a ballot and spent as security vote is appropriately used"

Talking on how best the issue of frailty especially that of Boko Haram revolt could be tended to, Atiku caused to notice how the issues of safety is taken care of in the Unified Middle Easterner Emirates (UAE) calling attention to that innovation has been applied to the point that one could barely see any security man in uniform.

If elected President, he stated that he would ensure that sufficient funds were appropriated for the acquisition of the appropriate technology to combat Nigeria's insecurity.

He continued, "We need to reform the existing security architecture to give us the best."

In his remarks, Okowa stated: We must collaborate with civil servants and technocrats. We must guarantee their well-being and gain their support.

He claims that youths will be more likely to believe in Nigeria if they can find work that pays well.

Okowa asserted: "Once the necessary governance is provided, militancy will not return." In a working economy, people will follow jobs and skills. The Petroleum Industry Act's full implementation will help with issues, especially the part about using the host community fund.

“We talk about getting all Nigerians to work together to ensure that we improve our security architecture in Our Covenant with Nigerians. When Alhaji Atiku Abubakar becomes President on May 29, 2023, he will get everyone to work together to revamp our security architecture to ensure that crime is reduced and security is improved.

On Boko Haram, Atiku stated that he still could not comprehend the phenomenon's continued existence, adding that Borno lacks such dense forests for hiding.

When asked to comment on the subsidy removal issue, Atiku stated that he has always supported it.

He claimed that the government had begun the process of eliminating subsidies while he was Vice President and Olusegun Obasanjo was in charge.

He claims that the removal was intended to occur in four stages, but that as soon as the second stage was completed, it was put on hold and the government was unable to continue.

He continued, "Whether we like it or not, the subsidy will have been removed by June of next year in accordance with the law that was passed by the National Assembly."

He said that subsidy is hurting the economy and that the money used for subsidy should be used for education and health care. "We also need to develop our people so that they can continue to participate in the economy," he said. Atiku emphasized that "we can't continue to borrow to survive."

Atiku promised to pay close attention to the creative industry in his plans, saying: 

In terms of creating employment, creative industry comes in second after agriculture.

Jonathan's government is the only one that has attempted.

Atiku objects to the economy's use of multiple exchange rates. He stated that as President, he would immediately instruct the Central Bank Governor to end the multiple exchange rates.

He railed against the development's impact on the manufacturing sector, noting that the situation was so dire that those seeking foreign exchange could not obtain it.
