Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Monday, November 19, said he has a plan to kick-off sound economic policies that would help to pull at least 50 million Nigerians out of poverty within two years.

Atiku, a former vice president of Nigeria and currently seeking to govern the country in 2019, said the policies would ensure the creation of job opportunities for the population.

“These investments will create a minimum of 2.5 million jobs annually and lift at least 50 million people from poverty in the first two years,” Atiku said as reported by Premium Times.

He reportedly said the effect of such a policy would help to double Nigeria’s GDP to N900 billion by 2025.

According to Atiku, the 2.5 million jobs he planned to create would help partly resolve the issue of insecurity.

Legit.ng earlier reported that the Adamawa chapter of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), an umbrella body for 38 political parties in Nigeria, adopted Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of 2019.

The decision was reached after IPAC elected its new officials in the state on Monday, November 19.
