The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation has assured that the foreign engagements by PDP presidential standard-bearer Atiku Abubakar will bring more investments to Nigeria.
The spokesperson for the organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, gave the assurance in a statement on Sunday.
The campaign team assured Nigerians that Mr Abubakar’s foreign engagements would revamp Nigeria’s economy and create jobs for youths if elected.
Mr Abubakar’s trip to the U.S., where he is scheduled to engage the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s US-Africa Business Centre, will further build policy thrusts that will fast-track economic recovery and enhance peaceful co-existence in Nigeria, according to the statement.
“Atiku has also been vigorously engaging the Nigerian business communities both at home and in the diaspora in line with his strategic blueprint to stimulate investments, business and employment opportunities,” the campaign organisation explained.
It added, “These include infrastructure, manufacturing, industrialisation, agriculture, healthcare, telecommunications, housing, power, oil and gas, education, aviation, automobile, among others. It Is instructive to state that such engagements are geared towards setting very firm policy framework that will boost youth-driven small, medium and large enterprises in a manner to create a positive multiplier effect and rapid lift in the GDP.”
According to the campaign, Nigerians have not forgotten the roles played by Mr Abubakar as the chairman of the nation’s economic council between 1999 and 2007.
“During that period, our nation achieved unprecedented economic growth, debt relief, massive investments and infrastructural developments to become one of the fastest-growing economies in the world,” it stated. “This is why Nigerians across board are rallying with Atiku Abubakar in the mission to rescue our nation and bring a breath of fresh air to the people, come May 29, 2023.”
