Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has vowed to repair Ajaokuta Steel Company if elected President in the forthcoming general elections.

The former Vice President made this promise during the PDP presidential campaign rally in Lokoja, Kogi State capital, on Saturday.

He revealed: “I am very happy with the people of Kogi state for this show of support, show of love, most of the challenges have been enumerated by previous speakers, one of them is the issue of Ajaokuta.

“I want to confirm here that if you give us your support and elect a PDP government, the nightmare of Ajaokuta will be a thing of the past. I assure you this and it is a promise I have made on behalf of PDP.

“I also want to promise you that the issue of your inland port is not only a Kogi issue, but issue of Northern Nigeria, because through the development of the port in Kogi, we also will have access to the maritime transportation in this country, so it is not a Kogi matter, it is our matter for the entire north of the country. I promise you we will implement that program.”

Speaking to his supporters in Kogi State, the erstwhile Customs officer maintained that his administration would address the issue of salary arrears, including incessant strike in Nigerian universities.

He added, “From what I have seen from Obajana up to Lokoja, it is thousands of young men and women, we will give you jobs, if we don’t give you jobs, we will give you business to do, I promise to set aside ten billion US dollars to empower our young men and women so that they can live comfortable live.”

“If you look at Kogi State itself, since PDP stopped governing Kogi State, no development has taken place in this State, everything in Kogi was built by PDP,” Atiku stated.
