A presidential aspirant under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji (Dr.) Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa says there was nothing wrong in the ongoing agitation for restructuring of the country as doing so would enhance Nigeria’s unity and progress.
A statement by the director media & publicity, Bafarawa Campaign organisation, Yusuf Abubakar said Bafarawa expressed his support shortly after a stakeholders’ meeting in Niger State on his presidential aspirations.
It said the agitation for restructuring, was largely as a result of injustice, adding that this must be reversed in the interest of the country at large.
Bafarawa recalled that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was able to succeed as president because of his decision to embrace everybody in his cabinet, including a number of members of the opposition parties for everyone to have a sense of belonging in his government.
“I support the call for restructuring in totality; a lot of Nigerians are divided by the way the country is being run by the present administration; we need to be more united than divided,” he said.
Speaking on his presidential aspiration, the former governor believes he was the most qualified person to fly the PDP’s flag in the 2019 presidential elections given his political credentials having been in politics for well over 40 years.
The presidential aspirant described his entry into the presidential race as not a ‘do-or-die’ affair, adding that he was in the race to tackle insecurity, and restore confidence in governance by doing the right thing.
Bafarawa also said all the PDP presidential aspirants had something to offer if given the opportunity.
He therefore, called on Nigerians to support one another by bringing unity and political cohesion towards ensuring political stability in the country.
He said, the issue of security are not to be left on the government alone, rather all people must assist by being vigilant in their areas, so as to flush out criminal elements in the society.
