Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, has assured Nigerians of peace and development in the country, if elected president come 2019.
Abubakar gave the assurance at the North East zonal rally of the party in Gombe on Tuesday.
He said people were in hunger and poverty, hence the need to vote out the All Progressives Congress for more development.
Abubakar called on the party supporters to vote PDP in all positions for positive change in the country.
Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State, who is the North East Zonal Coordinator for the presidential rally, thanked the leadership of the party for giving the zone the presidential candidate slot.
Dankwambo called on the people in the North East to return the favour by ensuring victory for the party in 2019.
In his remark, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Deputy Senate President, congratulated Nigerians for having Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the PDP.
Ekweremadu said Atiku would tackle the problems of Nigerians if voted into power, especially in the North East that is facing insurgency.
Yakubu Dogara, Speaker, House of Representatives, also advised people in the region to understand that the 2019 general election is not between PDP and APC.
