Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, Senior Advocate of Nigerian (SAN) has explained why Atiku Abubakar, the former vice president shouldn’t be elected as Nigeria’s president.
Adegboruwa made it known in a statement on Wednesday, he said PDP cannot be trusted with Nigeria’s constitution, noting that Atiku is being desperate of ruling the country.
He highlights the dangers ahead. According to him, “Undue and unbridled desperation for power lead to ineffectiveness. This has been the case with Buhari and so it shall be with Atiku, who has lusted for power beyond human understanding.
“In order to satisfy the political ambition of Atiku, PDP ate its own vomit, threw away its own Constitution and rejected decency and justice embedded in the power rotation doctrine. If PDP will not honour it’s own Constitution, how can it be trusted with the Constitution of Nigeria?
The lawyer said “In seeking to succeed Buhari who is a Muslim of the same faith with him, Atiku does not believe in the secularity of Nigeria as stated in our Constitution.
“In rejecting the popular decision of the PDP Committee set up to select his Vice-Presidential candidate, Atiku has shown himself to be an incurable dictator, who may be worse than Buhari if trusted with power.
He stressed that, “Atiku cannot be the option for today’s Nigeria. I, therefore, urge all people of good conscience to reject PDP and it’s leprous ticket.”
“An Atiku presidency will translate to 16 years of Muslim-Muslim presidency, which will facilitate more terrorist attacks, lead to marginalisation of people of other faiths and likely increased persecution.
