I wish to congratulate His Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar the People’s Democratic Party PDP presidential candidate and incoming president of Nigeria 2019 on the successful launching of his 2019 campaign manifestos and working document, tagged “TheAtikuPlan”.
According to a statements released to newsmen in Abuja on Monday, Comr Akpa Francis stated that the former vice president has once again proved to Nigerians and the international communities his readiness to rebuild the Giant of Africa and get it working again.
No doubt that the policy documents contains developmental strategies and policies Nigeria needs right now to get back in its feet,restore the lost glory and get our nation working again.
He further urge well meaning Nigerians to rally round Atiku/Obi presidential ticket come 2019.
“My plan will give Nigerian workers a living wage.
My plan will give Nigeria’s youth a world-class
My plan will empower Nigerian women, reduce
maternal mortality and increase their financial stability.
My plan will cater for the elderly, so our people are not
afraid of growing old.
My plan will invest in our failing infrastructure.
But above all, my plan will help create jobs because in my many travels across our great nation the one consistent thing I hear wherever I am is that our people
Today we will begin the process of sharing our policies that form my plan to create jobs, restructure the polity, and Get Nigeria Working Again.
If elected President, I will be pro-active in attracting investments and supporting the 50 million small and medium scale enterprises across Nigeria for the purpose of doubling the size of our Gross Domestic Product to US$900 billion by 2025.
These investments will create a minimum of 2.5 million jobs annually and lift at least 50 million people from poverty in the first 2 years.
My team and I will also help create jobs by innovating flagship programmes such as the National Open Apprenticeship Programme through which we shall enhance the capacity of Master-Craftsmen and women to train 1,000,000 new apprentices every year.
Our National Innovation Fund and SME Venture Capital Fund initiatives will provide stable and sustainable long-term support to aspiring entrepreneurs.
My plan to restructure Nigeria will lead to a vast increase in the Internally Generated Revenue both for the Federal Government and the states via the matching grants that we will provide to state governments that
increase their own revenue.
Let me be clear no state will receive less funding than they get today – in fact all will receive more and the harder a state works the more they will get.
And I am not just presenting these policies to you, I want you to own them. Take a look at them. You can view them at Atiku.org and on the pamphlets that we are making available to the public, you will have an opportunity to provide your feedback.
I started out as an orphan selling firewood on the streets of Jada in Adamawa, but God, through the Nigerian state, invested in me and here I am today. If Nigeria worked for me, I owe it as my duty to make sure that Nigeria also works for you.
It is time to Get Nigeria Working Again. I appeal to you to join me on this journey towards a better life for all Nigerians.
