The presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), has promised enabling environment for Nigerian youths to excel, if elected president on Feb. 14.

Buhari gave the assurance at the APC presidential campaign rally held in Yola on Monday.

He said a World Bank statistic indicated that 60 per cent of Nigerian citizens were under 33 years and were jobless.

“Sixty per cent of Nigerian citizens are youths who have no job opportunity,” Buhari said.

According to him, the top priority of his government, if elected, was to ensure security of lives and property and to create job opportunities for the youth through agriculture and mineral resources potentials.

Buhari said that APC government would bring positive development to the people of Nigeria.

He sympathised with the internally displaced persons in the state and assured them that they would go back to their respective places of abode if the APC form the government in February.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar called on the party faithful and supporters to collect their permanent voter cards.

Atiku said that change would only be possible if the people could endeavour to collect their permanent voter cards and used them wisely.

“During elections, make sure that you vote wisely for change,” he said.

The APC gubernatorial candidate in the state, Senator Jibrillah Muhammad, said that Adanawa was APC state, and thanked the people of the state for their support and assured them of credible governance if elected into office on February 28.

Earlier, the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, said they were in the state to introduce and seek the support of the electorate to vote for their presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, and other candidates.

Oyegun presented the party’s flag to Senator. Muhammad.
