The presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has reaffirmed his commitment to restore Nigeria’s leadership role in regional security and development.
Atiku gave the assurance when he met with the 19 ambassadors of the European countries and the Ambassador of the EU Mission in Nigeria alongside his delegation that included his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa; and the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, in Abuja on Thursday.
Atiku says policies of the last seven years, such as the locking up of the borders, have eroded the gains of the foreign policy that was pursued by the previous PDP administrations.
However, he said that under his watch, regional security and collaboration would be strengthened.
