The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has promised to give 40 per cent of appointments to women and youths if elected President in the 2023 general elections.

This was disclosed by the spokesman of his campaign organisation, Dino Melaye, during the inauguration of the Atiku-Okowa on Saturday in Abuja.

While emphasising the importance of women and youths in national development, he raised concern over the high cost of living in the country, blaming it on the failure of the Federal Government-led All Progressives Congress to effectively manage the nation’s economy.

Titi Abubakar, the wife of the PDP presidential candidate, at the ceremony, appealed to Nigerian women and youths for support, saying her husband is well prepared to rescue the nation and bring it back to working ways.

“If my husband is elected, I will do more for the Nigerian children and women. Atiku has promised women and youths 40 per cent in the cabinet; he is a man of his word and he will do it but it is you alone that can make it happen.”

“I am appealing to you, our women and youths not to sell your conscience and your tomorrow but rather stand for the right thing, and your tomorrow will be better because Atiku will bring back Nigeria’s lost glory,” she stated.

The ceremony was attended by dignitaries including the wife of a former President of the Senate, Mrs Helen Mark, and the Director of Support Groups, Atiku Campaign Organisation, Fabiyi Oladimeji.

Melaye said, “While women are asking for 35 per cent, Atiku is offering 40 per cent and let me assure you that this will be implemented to the letter when we come on board.

“I used to fly economy from Abuja to Lagos for N18,000 but it’s now over N100,000. We used to buy Diesel at N150 per litre but now it is N800 per litre; a dollar used to exchange for N210 and now it’s N700 and still rising.

“Bola Tinubu, Peter Obi and others are prepared to be President but Atiku is adequately prepared for the task of rescuing, uniting and rebuilding the nation.

“Obi is an upcoming President, his future is bright and age is on his side, but we need a father figure who can unite the country.”
