The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has again warned the Federal Government and the military against meddling in the Nigerian democratic process, saying the military has no function in the country’s electoral process.
Mr. Abubakar issued the warning while he spoke at his campaign rally in Calabar, Cross River State on Friday at the U. J. Esuene stadium, lamenting the involvement of the Nigerian military during elections.
He said, “Let me caution the Federal Government and the military. The military are not supposed to get involved in elections, only the Police are supposed to maintain law and order.
“I have read many statements from the military high command threatening people and politicians. I want to caution the Federal Government and the military high command that they have no function, whatsoever, in our electoral process, so they should be guided.”
“I am a very constitutional person, I will protect law and order based on the provisions in our constitution.”
The PDP Presidential candidate recalled that the first work he got in my life was given to me by someone from Cross River, assuring that, if elected, he will work with Governor Ben Ayade to actualise his industrial revolutions.
