Atiku: Under APC, Citizens Are Emigrating from Nigeria — But My Children Won’t Leave

Atiku Abubakar, standard-bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has expressed his dissatisfaction at that bad governance under the current administration which is making Nigerians leave for other countries.

Atiku stated this at a meeting held with the stakeholders of the south-east PDP on Tuesday, in Enugu.

While delivering his address, Atiku expressed that he would prioritise human capital development and quality education to enable young people to compete in the modern economy.

“In the government in which I served as Vice President, you saw Nigerians returning from abroad to invest in several opportunities in the country. Because I experienced it in my university.

“When I made sure I provide international standards, so many Nigerians from the United States and Europe came back not to Lagos or Abuja but to north east Yola. They came back. All what we need to do is to make sure we make our country attractive for them to return and they will return,” he said.

“Under the APC, the trend has since reversed. People cannot wait to run away from Nigeria. All of you have relatives, children who are running away to United States, Canada. I have my own. I have refused anyone of them to go to abroad and reside because I don’t believe it. We have to stay in this country.”
