Presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has promised the Southeast people that he will complete the Second Niger Bridge.
Atiku, who made the promise yesterday at the party’s mega campaign rally in Onitsha, said he would ensure its quick completion because of his wife, who hails from the commercial city of Anambra.
He also promised to ensure the completion and construction of roads in the region with the assistance of his running mate, Mr. Peter Obi.
Atiku, who was accompanied to the campaign field by Obi and his wife, Jenifer Atiku Abubakar, said he was not in Onitsha to campaign, but to present his wife and deputy, who he said were the real contestants.
“I’m not here to campaign, but to inform you that your son, Peter Obi and your daughter are the real contestants. I’m in the minority.
“You asked me to complete Second Niger Bridge, that I’ll do because of my wife. With Peter Obi as the VP, be rest assured that the roads in the region will be completed too,” the candidate said.
