READ ATIKU’S STATEMENT BELOW:
Statement By former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Alarm
Raised By former President Olusegun Obasanjo
I have received with serious concern the purported alert raised by
former President Olusegun Obasanjo of an alleged plot by the
government to arrest him on trumped up charges.
I am disturbed by this turn of events in our dear country
considering the huge price that was paid for us to have
democracy.
I wish to advise that government and its agents should retrace
their steps to avoid aggravating the already over heated polity.
The alert by President Obasanjo is coming against the backdrop of
earlier alerts by some leaders, especially those of the opposition of
deliberate and orchestrated attempt to intimidate and frame them
up.
I wish to state without equivocation that President Obasanjo is a
historical figure in Nigeria’s democracy and that the primary
purpose of government is to provide security of lives and property
of all citizens and residents irrespective of their status, political
affiliation, religious inclination and ethnic leanings.
Our nation has lost so much precious lives and property that we
can no longer afford to travel that road again.
I wish to appeal to President Buhari to call the security agencies
to order in order to douse the tension in the land.
Atiku Abubakar
Vice President of Nigeria, 1999-2007
June 8th 2018
