Remember You Are a Beneficiary of a Free and Fair Election – Atiku Tells Buhari
The Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has urged President Buhari to remember that he is a beneficiary of a free and fair election and it is therefore a matter of honour for him to allow a political environment and process that gives confidence to everyone.
Atiku stated this in a twitter message while still reacting to the suspension of the CJN, Walter Onnoghen. He warned the All Progressives Congress, APC, government to desist from taking actions that may push us further down the slippery slope towards a major constitutional crisis that could derail the electoral process.
According to him, “However, with this attack on the judiciary, General Buhari has set a new precedent in our democracy that has no equivalence in our history, not even in the darkest days of military dictatorship. This cannot be allowed to stand.”
“We are all witnesses to how this government has serially assaulted the National Assembly, a separate arm of government that represents the bastion of our democracy”.
He added that history is replete with “odious dictators whose path to dictatorship started with statements of good intentions. We must therefore remain vigilant in defense of our democracy. To create a condition that allows the constitution and the rule of law to become secondary to any other agenda is to pave the way for tyranny”.
