The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has hinted the world powers about President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged transgressions citing constitutional breaches.
This was contained in a letter signed by Atiku and addressed to the Ambassadors of the United States, France, Germany, the European Union (EU) and the High Commissioner of the United Kingdom.
The former vice president also accused Buhari of undermining the constitution in a bid to advance his selfish interest.
Excerpts of the letter read, “As a presidential candidate in the forthcoming general elections that will be conducted and supervised by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, I feel the urgent need to share with you some of these key violations of the provisions of our constitution and to demand that you pile pressure on the Federal Government to desist from these violations and ensure a level playing field for the general elections that are only a couple of weeks away.
“We acknowledge with profound appreciation the positions taken by some members of the international community in Nigeria and urge Your Excellency to add your country’s very strong voice against these breaches of Nigeria’s constitution. Your voice is very important to the survival of Nigeria’s democracy”.
Atiku also wrote about the alleged constitutional breaches committed by the President through the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.
“For the records, Justice Walter Onnoghen is the head of one of the tripartite but mutually independent organs that form the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“To attempt to muscle out the Chief Justice of Nigeria using phoney charges at a time when His Lordship was primed to play a central role in the fast-approaching nationwide electoral process represents the boldest steps in the march to undermine our democracy.
“This is undoubtedly an anti-democratic act which my political party and I reject without reservation and for which I urge Your Excellency to condemn unequivocally”, Atiku stated.
