It has been reported that the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has made it known on Tuesday that the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), handled the economy better than the All Progressives Congress, (APC).
Atiku reportedly made this known when he paid a visit to the Akwa Ibom State as part of his tour across the nation.
Atiku stated, “Just compare the economic indices during the PDP and also the APC reign, the growth in GDP and industrialisation and other sectors of the economy; we did extremely well and we also promoted the growth of the private sector.”
Atiku lauded the State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, for the economic and infrastructural development of the state and commended previous leaders in the state for their selfless contributions which laid the foundation for rapid economic and industrial growth.
While commending the State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, Atiku stated that, “Quite a number of things have endeared me to Governor Udom Emmanuel; the infrastructural development in the state, the other sectors of the economy in the state, particularly the industrialisation policy of the governor and couple with social sector development, health care and education.”
