Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has promised to restore peace to Plateau State and the entire North if elected president.
Atiku made the promise while speaking to supporters at the party’s presidential rally held at Rwang Pam Township Stadium in Jos on Tuesday.
The former vice president said Jos was noted as a peaceful and accommodating state, promising to return the state to the status if he wins the 2023 presidential election.
He also promised to work on the roads linking the state to other states so as to ease movement and connect Plateau to other areas of the country.
“Now, the people of Plateau State, it is a homecoming for me today. It is homecoming because I have been a resident of this state for the past 28 years. We have promised that we will restore peace in this state. We will also restore and revamp the economy of this state.
“We will also make sure that this state is connected to neigbouring states as far as road infrastructures are concerned. APC has neglected all roads connecting Plateau with other states in the country. We promise because you are a PDP state,” Atiku assured.
The rally had in attendance party officials and stalwarts, including the running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, the National Chairman, Iyorcha Ayu; Director-General of the Presidential Campaign Council, Aminu Tambuwal, and members of states and national assembly among others.
The presidential campaign team had earlier visited the Gbong Gwom Jos, Da Jacob Gyang Buba in his palace as well as the Anglican Bishop of Jos, Most Reverend Benjamin Kwashi, and Sheikh Yahaya Jengri.
