Frontline PDP presidential Aspirant and former Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, SAN, has pleaded with Nigerians not to lose hope as they are being confronted with daunting challenges of living on a daily basis.

Turaki made the plea in Bauchi on Sunday while addressing PDP executive committees, delegates, elders and other members from states in the North East zone.

It was part of his ongoing consultations to states ahead of the party’s national convention.

The presidential aspirant noted that: “There is so much poverty, hunger, insecurity, harassment, joblessness and disaffection in the land due to APC’s mis-governance. But, there is light at the end of the dark tunnel.”

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to translate their anger and frustration against the APC-induced terrible living condition by voting the part out to make way for the PDP that is willing, ready and able to rescue the nation in 2019.

Turaki promised that if he succeeds in being the president, he would come up with workable policies and appoint tested and respected economic team to revamp the economy.

He stressed that it was still possible to attain and surpass the economic achievements as at May 28, 2015, prior to the APC government when Nigeria’s economy was leading in Africa and was also the third fastest-growing in the world after China and Qatar before being downgraded by the clueless current government.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said also that compliance with the rule of law and respect for the other arms of government will hallmark his administration. This will be in sharp contrast to the current intimidation and harassment of both the legislature and the judiciary, at times with gun-wielding agents of the state.

Turaki who was once the chairman, Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North East recalled that the government then successfully pushed the Boko Haram insurgency to the fringes of the country, which made it possible to hold the 2015 general elections in the frontline states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.

Besides, he said, the committee compiled a comprehensive report that would have ensured a lasting solution to security challenges across the country, but the APC government dumped the report. Hence, the retrogression of the gains made and subsequent escalation of the problem, he lamented.

He, therefore, promised to revisit the report and also come up with a more effective and efficient security architecture to address the problem.

The presidential aspirant also lamented that the country had never been so divided since the 1914 amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates, promising to tackle the problem head-on as a bridge-builder.

The Director-General of his campaign organisation and former governor of Adamawa State, Mr. Bonie Haruna who is also from the North East, explained that he teamed up with Turaki because the dynamics of the time required an intelligent, hardworking, knowledgeable, youthful, energetic and charismatic person imbued with integrity and accountability such as the aspirant to run the affairs of the country.
