PDP PCC: Atiku Will Stop Borrowing

According to the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council, if the party’s candidate — Atiku Abubakar, is elected, he’ll be frugal with the country’s finances.

It stated that Atiku would prefer to make sure that the interest rates and repayment terms are in line with international standards.

it also guaranteed that the former vice president will stop borrowing from other nations.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja, the council’s Director of Voter Intelligence and Strategy, Osita Chidoka, said, “We are not asking them to forgive our debt, we are asking them to make sure that our repayment terms and our interest rates are in safe and global terms and we will be able to make sure that we fulfil those obligations as of when due.

“Nigeria needs that person that will reintroduce sensible economic policies, so the first thing we will do about our debts is when you are in a hole, you stop digging so we will stop digging, we will stop borrowing to start with and stopping borrowing means that we are going to review our economic revenue profile and make sure that the government expenditure is not on the wrong priority.”

He added: “I have not seen any poll that said he will not be second in the South-East and probably win some states in the South-South. I have not seen any other poll that said other than Lagos in the South-West and he is not the second in the South-West.

“While we have the candidate of the APC that may hold in the South-West, there is no other region where he will win, he doesn’t win the South-East, South-South, North West, and North-East, so he has no pathway to power.”
