The Atiku/Obi campaign, determined to make good use of the remaining days for campaign was busy yesterday crisscrossing the state, convincing voters on the need to vote for Alhaji Abubakar Atiku.
Obi, who walked around markets on foot with his followers, visiting the major markets in those cities as well as passing through streets, appealed to voters to be part of the new “dawn sweeping across the country like harmattan fire, the dawn of Atiku presidency.”
Obi regretted the near absence of Federal Government in towns visited and told the people that like other major cities in Nigeria, that they would be taken care of by Atiku’s Presidency.
In Nnewi, Obi said: “I can tell you that during the study of the problems of different towns in Nigeria, which Atilku commissioned for over three years, it was discovered that the major problem of Nnewi is power and I can tell you that going by Atiku’s work plan that problem will be solved.”
Obi, who thanked people like Innoson, Cutix Cable and Chikason for remaining steadfast in industrialisation despite harsh policies of the last three years, assured them of better deal under Atiku. He said that the revival of infrastructure of power would help to resuscitate many Nnewi moribund industries.
In Obosi, Obi was hailed as he told traders at Ngbuka that the Federal Government under Atiku would reduce tax and introduce other measures to encourage them.
