The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has called for the support of the South-East, saying he will hand over to an Igbo man if elected.
He made the comment while addressing party supporters during his campaign rally in Awka the Anambra State capital on Thursday.
“I want to thank you, the people of Anambra State, for this warm reception I never thought I will see such a crowd in Anambra State, and believe me, we are not going to forget you, we are going to reward you handsomely.”

Atiku also promised to revive industries in the region, vowing to dredge the River Niger to boost economic activities.
He said, “On our arrival today, we visited their Governor Prof. Soludo, and he said to me: ‘I know you are going to work but make sure that all the federal roads that pass through Anambra State are reconstructed.
“And I promised him, I’m going to do that.
“We are also going to help Anambra industrialise the state so that the state will create as many jobs for our young men and women.
“And you know, I promised to set aside $10 billion to promote small-scale and medium enterprise for our young men and women so that they can be independent.”
Atiku’s running mate Ifeanyi Okowa, who accompanied him to the rally, said the PDP chieftain is the best option for Nigeria.
