Postponement of Election not supported – Atiku
Atiku Abubakar the Former vice president under Olusegun Obasanjo administration, has demanded that elections should be held as scheduled.
This is coming after security officials suggested the election be postponed.
Atiku said: “Yes, we have a problem with the distribution of PVCs but the position of my party, the APC is that since we have a voters’ register then that should be used in conducting the elections. I also believe there is enough time between now and the elections to issue everyone with their PVCs”.
Atiku said that the call was unnecessary and if taken will show a dangerous signal about the intentions of the Federal Government to conduct a free, fair and credible poll in February.
Atiku was speaking as he arrived after a medical trip abroad.
His media officer said he is ”strong, healthy and happy to be back to lend his support the train of change sweeping across the country”.
“The duty of participating in the process of change which our great party, the APC is committed to supersedes every other consideration. For me, participating in this campaign is a call to national duty.
“It is a duty which we cannot afford to compromise upon and we must press into the consciousness of those at the helms of affairs that it is morally dubious and socially unacceptable to extend the dates of the elections by a single day from the scheduled timelines,”
