Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019, Atiku Abubakar, has said if elected, 70 per cent of his appointments would go to youths and women. 

Atiku said this in Yola, capital of Adamawa State, yesterday, when he addressed a group of youths who organised a solidarity rally to endorse his candidature.

The former vice president reiterated 40 percent of appointments would go to youths while 30 percent would go to women. 

 “The remaining 30 percent will be managed by the elderly.

“This election is for you; youths and women as you make up 70 per cent of Nigerian population of voting age.

“As for me, I have achieved in life, but, many of you have a long way to go; you have no house, no job. If you fail to vote PDP, you will continue like that.

“On election day, go and vote; protect your votes and ensure your votes count,” he said.
