Atiku Abubakar has asked President Buhari to be like former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Atiku mentioned this while reacting to a statement in the President’s New Year speech.
Buhari said that the upcoming election is not one to die or kill for.
In his response, Atiku said “It is not enough to preach peace when he (Buhari) cannot publicly condemn the violent behaviour of his supporters who harass, molest and publicly humiliate his opponents and their supporters.
“It is not enough for the President to condemn do-or-die politics if he cannot control the activities of overzealous aides, including the country’s security chiefs, especially the Inspector General of Police whose activities lately gives him away as a partisan player in negation of his constitutional role.
“Go beyond lip service and urge security chiefs to be politically neutral during the election. Their loyalty to the constitution doesn’t include putting themselves at the service of the ruling party at the expense of free and fair elections.
“Jonathan lived by his noble words and statesmanship when he conceded defeat without hesitation, thereby contributing to peaceful conduct of election.”
