While speaking at a town hall meeting with stakeholders in Abeokuta, Ogun State, she said everything has worsened under the government of President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in just nearly four years.

According to her, Atiku is experienced well enough to turn the nation's fortunes around for good.

She said, "You have no other president than Atiku. He was there before as vice president. He has done it before and he will do it again.

"He was the one who led President Obasanjo's economic team. The eight years was meaningful to Nigeria. The APC government is barely four years in power and everything has gone worse.

"We're in bondage. Vote Atiku to liberate us. It's an inclusive government that we are going to have because it would be the government by the people and for the people. We want to be the servant of our people because we are the chosen one."
