Addressing PDP supporters, Atiku uncovered that if given the mandate on Saturday, he would bolster the reestablishment of farming and the economy, which as per him, are wrecked.
He said: “Are you going to vote for PDP? If you vote for PDP, the government will revitalize business and the moribund industries in Kano. We will also boost agriculture.
“I will ensure that among my priorities would be the revitalization of agriculture, industries and commercial activities so as to boost the economy, which has been killed by the APC government.”
