Atiku Abubakar, the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) Presidential candidate, has promised that peace will return to Benue State if he is elected President of Nigeria.

The former VP revealed that one of the measures he will take to ensure that peace returns to the state is for the Fulani and Tivs to sign a peace treaty.

At a presidential campaign rally in Benue state, Atiku promised to end insecurity and ensure peaceful coexistence between the state’s Fulani and Tiv communities.

He stated that he will ensure that people can freely go to farms without fear of losing their lives, and that Benue state will truly be the nation’s food basket.

“The umbrella of Tiv people all over the world, I promise you, if you elect me as your president, just like I did in 2001 when I came to Benue and forced the Fulanis to sign a peace accord with their brother Tivs,” he said.

“Benue state is the food basket of this country, today our farmers in Benue do not go to farm again because of insecurity. I will ensure that security is restored in Benue State.

“I also promised you that by the grace of God, the issue of unemployment of our young men and women will be a thing of the past, that is why in my policy document, I said we are going to allocate 10 billion US dollars to empower our young men and women with enterprises.

“Let me also assure you that the infrastructural deficit you are facing in this state in terms of your connectivity with other neighbouring states will be a thing of the past because we are going to make sure that we vote funding for the development of roads and railways to make sure that our transportation system is once again working.

“Benue state has been a gateway state between the far north and the south, that is why we have the railway line passing through Benue state, today that line is not working, I promise you that when you elect a PDP government, we shall reopen the railway lines.

“Let me reassure you once more that the closure of our universities due to non-payment of salaries to employees will be a thing of the past.

“My private university has never participated in a one-day strike; if a private institution cannot do so, why should the public university? ASUU won’t strike, I guarantee it, because we’ll pay them and fully fund the education sector.

Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s national chairman, also spoke during the debate. He claimed that only people with mental health issues would vote for the APC because “all of you know that you have suffered in this country in the last eight years.” Don’t throw away your vote.

When asked about the party’s stance, Ayu responded, “The party is not divided. A couple of the members had complaints. We are conversing with them.

We want to ensure that they return and fully collaborate with us. Everything can be changed in a week. This has been going on, and I want to assure you that we will get everyone back.
