Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate for president, has pledged that if elected, his administration would allocate $10 million to increase the ease of doing business in Abia State.
To improve the movement of goods and services throughout the state, he also promised to restore the Eastern rail line and the Aba-kot Epene road.
During the PDP presidential campaign in the state on Saturday, Abubakar addressed Umuahia, the capital of Abia State.
He appealed for the Abia people’s votes, stating that it would be in their best interests to support a party that could win the election.
He said: “We are aware of all the suffering that Nigerians are going through because of the naira redesign and lack of petroleum products in the country and we sympathise with you all.
“Our party is not playing ethnic or religious card; what we are playing is the Nigerian card. When the PDP was in power, we ensured that people from the South-East and other parts of Nigeria were given a sense of belonging and we will do it again.
“I have seen your request and they are all in line with our campaign manifesto. I want to appeal to the people to vote for us and we will meet all your requests.
“I approved the construction of the inland port in Abia State as vice president and I will ensure that it is completed when we take over power.”
