The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku has said that despite the hardship under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, his children will not travel out of the Country.
Atiku disclosed this during the PDP South-East stakeholders meeting held in Enugu on Tuesday.
He said; “Under the APC, the trend has since reversed. People cannot wait to run away from Nigeria. All of you have relatives, children who are running away to the United States, Canada. I have my own. I have refused any of them to go abroad and reside because I don’t believe it. We have to stay in this country.”
The Presidential candidate also assured that he will prioritise human capital development and standard education to enable young people to compete on the modern Economy
He said, “In the government in which I served as Vice President, you saw Nigerians returning from abroad to invest in several opportunities in the country. Because I experienced it in my university.’’
“When I made sure I provided international standards, so many Nigerians from the United States and Europe came back not to Lagos or Abuja but to North-East Yola. They came back. All we need to do is to make sure we make our Country attractive for them to return and they will return.’’
“We shall also provide a good quality healthcare system that focuses on preventive care. We shall therefore make massive investment in this critical area. A well-educated and healthy workforce is critical for economy and wealth creation in today’s world.’’
