Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said he won the 2019 Presidential election but was robbed of his mandate by the All Progressive Congress.
He alleged that the APC denied him the mandate given to him by voters in 2019 using power of incumbency and the instrument of the Federal Government.
The Presidential aspirant on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party said under no circumstance will that be allowed to repeat itself again in the 2023 elections should the party give him the mandate to contest.
He was quoted to have spoken to Kaduna PDP delegates at the party Secretariat on Tuesday night.
Atiku said, “Give me your votes again like you did in 2018, I assure you that I will not disappoint you.
“If given the party mandate and I emerge President in 2023, I will invest in education, decisively address insecurity, and create employment for the youths…unite the country and give every part of the country a sense of belonging.
“I am here again to solicit your votes like you gave me in 2018. I won the 2019 presidential election squarely but was robbed of it, just like you people were robbed in Kaduna State using government power of incumbency, but we won’t allow a repeat of that again in 2023.
“I, therefore, appeal to you to elect correct and competent leaders, if I get the mandate of the party and emerge victorious in 2023, I will unite Nigerians and give every part of the country a sense of belonging.
“If elected President, I will invest in education, decisively address insecurity and provide employment to our youths, give me your votes and you won’t regret doing so.”
