Atiku Says Buhari is Not a Democrat

Atiku Reacts To Buhari's Statement on Ballot Box SnatchersPresidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party(), has said that President is planning to use the military to intimidate voters during the 2019 election.

This is coming after the President, after the postponement of the presidential election, said that snatchers of ballot boxes will pay with their lives.

Atiku made this known in a statement by his special assistant on public communication, , on Monday, February 18.

He alleged that the president’s statement proves he has no regard for the laws of the country and is inciting violence ahead of the general elections.

“We were shocked to hear General Buhari live on national television threatening to kill people for an offense where no such proscription exists under law. The last time we looked, the death-penalty was not a sanction of the 2010 Election Act. In fact, threatening people with death in the context of an election is incitement to electoral violence, which is an offense under that Act.

“The reason the APC-controlled federal government will want to deploy the military is not to stem the rising cases of violence, but for the simple reason that the APC wants to use the military to intimidate the opposition and pave the way for rigging.”

He added that President Buhari is not a democrat, adding that he is mistaking his current position for his former military position.
