The presidential flagbearer of the main opposition party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has promised to rescue Zamfara State from terrorist gangs that have killed, abducted and displaced thousands of people, if elected president.
Mr Abubakar made this promise on Wednesday night after he met with PDP’s gubernatorial candidate in Zamfara State, Dauda Lawal – Dare.
Atiku said rescue was on its way for the people of the state.
He blamed the All Progressives Congress government for allowing violence to fester in the state, a situation he said has left the state backward and its people vulnerable.
According to a statement by the media office of the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Atiku said the first step of rescuing the state was to vote out the APC.
