The former Vice President said recent revelations suggesting potential suppression of voices and trumped-up allegations against opposition figures are deeply troubling.
“The recent revelations suggesting potential suppression of voices and trumped-up allegations against opposition figures are deeply troubling.”
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) to refrain from attempts to use security agencies to harass or illegally detain members of opposition platforms.
He stated this against the backdrop of an alarm raised by one of his campaign spokespersons, Daniel Bwala, over plots to arrest and detain him for criticising the APC-led government.
“The principles of Democracy are principles that we have lived by and which we have seen some of our closest associates die for. The ruling APC must refrain from any attempts to use our security agencies to harass or illegally detain any member or voice of the political opposition – and this call is not here limited to only members of my political party, but indeed all opposition voices including the many individuals across the internet who speak up only to seek a better country.
