Former Vice President of Nigeria and a presidential aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has promised that his presidency would build an international airport in Anambra State.

He stated that the state deserved an international airport to ease the travels of the people of the state from one region to the other, especially considering strong economic endowments of the people of the state, adding that even in developed countries like America, there are international airports in the states.

Atiku who was addressing the state delegates of PDP in Awka, state capital, stated that it is only by restructuring the country to accord each state autonomy so that they only make contributions to the Centre instead of the current situation where they depend on allocations from the federal government holds the key to the socio- economic and political advancement of the country.

He decried the prevailing disunity in the country stating that under his presidency all the various critical components would be welded in such away that there would be no reason for the people to be seeking the disintegration of the country.

“Our country is on the crossed roads today, on the cross roads because I have never seen our country so divided as it is today, not even during and after the civil war that we have found the level of disunity in our country as we have now. And the reason is simply because we have a government that is insensitive to our diversity.

“I have been championing restructuring and its one thing we must do to give people the autonomy to govern themselves and develop themselves.

“We should have a situation where component units should contribute money to Abuja instead of going to Abuja to collect money. Every socio-economic indicator shows we are at the bottom.

“We must unite to make sure we don’t vote for APC at all. This is a government we must remove next year because they don’t know how to govern and they don’t want to learn,” Atiku stated.
