Make completion of Ajaokuta Steel your priority, Natasha tells Atiku 

The senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), for Kogi Central, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan has appealed to the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to resuscitate Ajaokuta Steel company when he emerges as the next President of the country.

“As we join you to campaign, I will trust that on the 25th February, 2023 that God Almighty is going to grant us victory.

“We urge you on behalf of all the indigenes of Kogi State to make the following pledges; that you are going to make sure that Ajaokuta Steel company works so that jobs will be created, so that revenue can be generated, so that we can come out of poverty, administrative slavery and we can take position as worthy indigenes of this great country.

“We also trust Your Excellency that you are going to ensure that you create the confluence port, so that Kogi State will become the pivotal part of the northern part of Nigeria.

“We also trust that our women, children and every one that is involved in any business will have robust ecosystem that will support the entrepreneur of our state, that grants and scholarships will be given to our system to enable a self sustaining populace,” she said.
