Port Harcourt — Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar said yesterday in Port Harcourt that he is offering himself for the presidency to set the country on the path of growth.

Atiku who visited Government House, Port Harcourt to consult with Governor Nyesom Wike on his presidential ambition, said that since 2015, the APC Federal Government had destroyed education, health and infrastructural sectors through poor budgetary allocations and releases.

"We have not seen 100 kilometres of road constructed by the APC Federal Government anywhere in the country," he said, adding that the APC Federal Government had destroyed the foundation of unity and cohesion of the country.

"I have never seen Nigeria so divided along religious, ethnic and regional lines. This division is as a result of the mismanagement of the APC," Atiku said.

Earlier, Governor Nyesom Wike said he had received Sule Lamido and now Atiku Abubakar, and that other aspirants would be offered the platform to consult with Rivers PDP.
