This document revealed that Atiku will establish a strong and effective democratic government that will guaranty the safety and security of life and property.

The centre of it’s policy will be to promote a strong and true federal system,build a strong and prosperous economy, create jobs and wealth as well as lifting millions out of poverty.

The Economy

On the economy, Abubakar said ” Our agenda is guided by three basic principles”, which include:
1. Re-affirming the criticality of private-sector leadership and greater sector participation in development; while also repositioning the public sector to focus on its core responsibility.

2.Eliminating government monopoly in all infrastructure sectors, including refineries, rail transportation and power transmission.Price determination by market forces and as a result, “the persistent price distortions occassioned by current interventionist exchange rate management policy shall be eliminated.”

3.Reliance on optimal fiscal space to generate more revenue for development. He projected a fiscal regime that is stable and predictable and can clearly bridge the gap between the national revenue yield and national expenditure.

He shed more light on some of the fiscal strategies his administration will employ to include, Domestic Reforms to improve IGR, promoting export growth to improve fx earnings, blocking leakages and financing projects through strategic partnerships with private sector.

National Security
