The wife of the PDP presidential candidate, Titi Abubakar, said her husband is contesting for the 2023 presidency in order to rescue Nigeria.
Titi made the remark on Monday at the PDP Presidential Rally at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos.
She commended the women and youths for defying the sun to attend the rally.
Titi, however, urged Nigerians to use their Permanent Voter Card (PVC) to show that they were tired of suffering.
Stressing that it would not be easy to wrestle power from APC, Mrs. Abubakar urged the people to show resilience and determination.
â€œAtiku Abubakar has come to rescue Nigeria. Atiku has come to save Nigerians from the bondage of poverty and hardship. If you can vote for Atiku Abubakar, your sufferings will be over, â€ she said.
