The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, has promised to ensure stable power supply and expand the nation’s economy if elected as the president on February 14.
Buhari said this at the Government Secondary School in Calabar, Cross River State, while addressing a mammoth crowd that had come to receive the APC Presidential Campaign train on Wednesday in continuation of his tour of states in the South-South geo-political zone.
This came just as the Director-General of Buhari Campaign Organisation and Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, urged the electorates in the geo-political zone to vote out President Goodluck Jonathan because he did not deserve re-election.
Buhari said his policies would discourage people from stealing when voted into power.
He also said the power sector would be stabilised in order to resuscitate dying industries in the country.
“If you go down memory lane during the period of regional governments, the leaders then used to allocate 43 per cent of the budget to education and that is why their names will never be forgotten. We will try to secure our country; we will ensure industries are resuscitated.
“Our industries are dying and will continue to die unless we get the issue of power supply correct. We will resuscitate our industries,” he added.
Buhari added that he would bring about the development of the agricultural sector to reduce unemployment in the country.
