Atiku Warns Against Impunity, Says Nigeria Sliding Into Police State

 Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has warned the federal government against turning the country into a police state following the restrictions placed on the way of some All Progressives Congress (APC) governors and party members, to attend the campaign rally for their Ekiti State counterpart yesterday.

A press... statement from the media office of the former Vice President noted that the action of the PDP-led federal government in stopping the governors of Kano, Rivers and Edo from attending the APC governorship campaign rally in Ado-Ekiti yesterday, in a Gestapo-like manner is capable of turning Nigeria into a Banana Republic where fundamental rights of citizens are trampled upon with impunity.

The Turaki Adamawa was particularly miffed at the way the federal government has been dragging the military and police into politics warning "the government must stop instigating state security agents paid from tax payers money against helpless, hapless and law abiding Nigerians."

The APC top chieftain who promised at the party's recent national convention that he would lead the vanguard to unseat the Jonathan administration he described as inept and incompetent, enjoined "our gallant military men should remain focused on securing and protecting the territorial integrity of our great nation, especially in this time of terror attacks and insurgency across the country."

Atiku also reminded Nigerians "a government that deprives its citizens from access to jobs and education as manifested by the on-going closure of some tertiary institutions, such as polytechnics, to be shut for nearly a year, has alienated itself from the masses and will definitely suffer the repercussion at the polls, use of force or not."

He stressed that the only viable alternative to the PDP-led government is the APC, which he said, "is a prescription for socio-political peace, progress, equity, security, unity and national development."

  1. I totally agree not only with the content of this message but also the messenger Atiku Abubakar. It really a thing of shame to know that the same people we elected to lead us to the "promise land" are now the same people that has decided to turn against us, using the security agents that are paid from our taxes against us and oppressing us at every given chance. This same government has shot down our polytechnics, Colleges of Education, Our air space and now our roads, Please is this what democracy is all about?
    The government should face developmental projects and stop all this petty politics, Oppression of its already impoverished citizens and suppression of all oppositions.
    I pray that God have mercy on us and give us visionary leaders to lead us out of all this.

  2. The level of impunity in the country is condemnable and cannot be tolerated. Atiku and other concerns Nigerians are right to call for the high rate of impunity where by those who are paid with tax payers money are use to violate the fundamental human right of Nigerians the right thing should be done and our military should not be remote controlled by a single individual.

  3. Atiku. Shut up. The years you were vice president, what do the masses have to show for it.. you only enriched

  4. That is his own way of tryn to remain relevant.As a former vice president hw many jobs did he creates. Is all wat he is.criticisn now new ?
