BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that what is happening in Edo State is a threat to constitutional order nationwide.
Atiku, who stated this while reviewing evolving events in Edo State in his Social media handles, urged belligerent forces to reign in their proxies, and abide by the rule of law.
He noted that Nigeria has been on the edge due to the brinkmanship of those charged with the constitutional leadership, stressing that we must, as a nation, not escalate the already tense atmosphere in the polity.
According to him; “As I have previously said, without the rule of law, there will be no rule at all. The current goings-on portend grave danger, not only to law and order in that state, but to the coming Edo elections.
“The people of Edo state should be allowed to choose who they wish to govern them, and that choice is to be made on September 19, 2020. Pending then, everything legally possible must be done to preserve the status quo,” Atiku posited.
