Former President of the Senate and presidential aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party, Anyim Pius Anyim, has stated that he will stabilise Nigeria in six months, if elected President in the 2023 election.
Anyim made this known while paying a courtesy visit to a chieftain of the party and former governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, in the state.
In a statement made available to The PUNCH on Sunday, the former Senate President pledged to stabilise the country in six months and prepare it for growth.
“I promise that within the first six months of my administration, I will stabilise this country and prepare it for growth, peace and prosperity,” he told Lamido.
Anyim added, “We must agree on the things that divide us. We must come to terms with what works for us. I will provide the platform to midwife this consensus.
“We will all work together to make Nigeria great again. I will provide that distinctive leadership that will build consensus across the country and reconcile Nigerians.”
Speaking earlier at the party secretariat to woo the delegates ahead of the primary, Anyim promised to make Jigawa an export hub of agricultural produce, even as he emphasised that Nigeria has a lot to learn from the state.
“Jigawa State, besides agricultural produce, has a lot more to export to other parts of Nigeria. Jigawa is the only state in Nigeria where there is no insecurity and there is no threat of insecurity,” Anyim said.
