“When they came in, there was insecurity only in North-East. Today, there is insecurity in North-West and North-Central. And we have lost more lives at any other time in the history of this country in peaceful times. They have failed as far as security is concerned,” he said.

Atiku recalled that the ruling party campaigned on three issues – to fight corruption, improve the nation’s economy and secure the country, but regretted that the party failed to achieve any of these three. He observed that over 10 million jobs were lost since 2015, resulting in Nigeria becoming headquarters of world poverty.

The former vice president promised that PDP would provide jobs if voted into office and would restore the jobs that had been lost. “You either get a job or get a business to do.

“So, this is a promise and a commitment I am making on behalf of PDP and if you vote for PDP.
“I want to commit to you that if you vote for PDP, the insecurity which they have not been able to control, we shall control it.
“They have been unable to control insecurity because they have been unable to provide jobs and businesses for the people.

“So by the time we provide jobs and businesses for our young men and women, you will hear less crime and less insecurity,” he further pledged.

Director General of the PDP Campaign Organisation and Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, said the 2019 presidential election would be a referendum.
“A government that has been with us for three and a half years and promised us three things, we are going to decide as Nigerians. If they have performed, they can continue; if they have not performed, they must pack and go home,” Saraki stated.
