Campaign vague on policy, big on promises, says Atiku

President Muhammadu Buhari has launched his campaign for the 2019 presidential election, themed ‘Next Level’.

In the speech delivered at the launch, Buhari listed his achievements in the past three and a half years, as well as his plans for Nigeria if he is elected for second term.

The president said his administration has worked hard to fulfil promises made, laying the foundation for a strong, stable and prosperous country for Nigerians despite the difficulty.

Among the achievements listed by the president is the liberation of 17 Local Government Areas in the northeast from the grip of the insurgency, curbing youth restiveness in the Niger Delta, catalysing economic growth, job creation, and broad-based prosperity.

Buhari also scored his government high on broadening investment on agriculture as well as executing the National Social Investment Programme which, according to him, has provided direct support to over 13 million Nigerians, especially the unemployed youth, children, the weak and vulnerable as well as small and medium businesses, among others.

He promises to consolidate on economic security and future prosperity of Nigerians.

“Nigeria, more than ever before, needs a stable and people-focused government to move the agenda for our country forward. Join us on this journey to the Next Level of a prosperous, strong and stable Nigeria!,” Buhari said.

Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has described the ‘next level’ campaign by the Buhari campaign organisation as vague on policy and big on promises.

He said without a concrete policy, these ‘next level’ promises are nothing more than next level propaganda which Nigerians care nothing about because the people are now interested in proper agenda.


The statement reads: “Reading through the presentation, we note that it [Buhari’s speech]is very vague on policy and very big on promises. Promises are cheap.

“Anyone can make promises and indeed, President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) did make quite a number of promises which they either denied or did not fulfil, such as the promise to create three million jobs per annum and to equalise the value of the naira with the dollar.”
