General Mohammadu Buhari, the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, on Friday promised to develop infrastructure and encourage entrepreneurship spirit of Nigerians if given the mandate.
Buhari said this at the APC presidential campaign rally in Aba, Abia.
“We will focus on infrastructural development in terms of power and roads, which are necessary.
“We will also encourage the entrepreneurship spirit of the people of Aba and this zone because your entrepreneurship capability is known even beyond Nigeria.
“We will make sure that you have good roads, electricity and communication and we will empower farmers to produce more food.
“The main concern of APC is to see that no capable Nigerian is left idling away and roaming the streets to constitute security threats to law-abiding Nigerians,” he said.
He said the party’s manifesto would soon be made available to Abia residents, urging them to read and understand the content.
The first civilian governor of the state, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, in his speech, said the Igbo people could not afford to put their eggs in one basket hence the need for them to join the party.
Onu said it had been proved that Nigerians had become desirous of change, stressing that the Igbo race must join the train for change.
The APC governorship candidate, Chief Nyerere Anyim, after receiving the party’s flag from the National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, said he was grateful for the opportunity to serve Abia people.
He promised to make the state better if elected.
