We Were Shocked To Hear Buhari Live On National Tv Threatening To Kill People- Atiku

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar says threatening people with death in context of election is incitement to electoral violence. Atiku was reacting to a statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that ballot-snatchers will pay with their lives.

Reacting in a statement, Phrank Shaibu, aide to Atiku, quoted him as saying Buhari’s comment is an offence going by the electoral act and that the retired general is only showing his true colours.

Atiku said the president has “complete” disregard for the country’s laws. “We were shocked to hear General Buhari live on national television threatening to kill people for an offence where no such proscription exists under law.

The last time we looked the death-penalty was not a sanction of the 2010 electoral act,” he said. “In fact, threatening people with death in the context of an election is incitement to electoral violence, which is an offence under that act.

“Once again General Buhari is showing his true colours and complete disregard for our constitution and the laws of this country. He is getting confused with when he was President under military rule.

  3. George Smart. God bless you. Atiku and PDP are pathetic opportunists and hypocrites. Didn't the PDP chairman - Secondus' threatened the FG of war if this election is rigged by their suspect - APC?

    Is such threat by Secondus not weighty enough? and a call for national unrest and instability?. A right thinking Nigerian should know the president's order against ballot box snatchers was only to repose PDP's suspicions and allegations and to send a warning signal to would be perpetrators irrespective of party affiliation in order to have a peaceful, free and fair elections.
