Atiku Cries Out Over Plans To Arrest Him

Presidential Tribunal: Atiku Calls 9 Additional Witnesses (Full List)

Atiku Abubakar, Former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the last election has cried out over plans to arrest him.

This was made known in a statement by his spokesman, Paul Ibe today.

According to the statement, the reason for the planned arrest is Atiku’s insistence of existence of a server used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and a false comment on “mass protest”

Ibe said: “I wish to emphatically state that such a statement did not emanate from Atiku Abubakar or his privies.

“It is the work of mischief makers who want to mar his spotless pro-democratic record and lay the groundwork for their threatened actions against him on false charges of being a threat to national security.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Atiku Abubakar believes in the rule of law and in the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. In his almost four decades in politics, he has never taken action or spoken words against democracy and will not start now.

“Atiku Abubakar and his team have confidence in God and thus call on those bent on mischief to have the fear of God and retrace their steps.

“Democracy has come to stay in Nigeria. The culture of fear being created now cannot rein in our democracy. Nigeria and Nigerians have a consistent history of outlasting tyranny and will continue to do so by the grace of God.”
