Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has expressed concerns over the alarm by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that the Federal Government plans to arrest him using trumped up charges.
In a statement he released this evening, the former Vice President who served under Obasanjo, said the alarm raised by the former president is disturbing. He called on President Buhari to call his security agents to order. The former Vice President stressed that Obasanjo is a historical figure in Nigeria’s democracy.
Read the statement from Atiku below
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.
