Nigeria's Democracy On Trial-Atiku  

Listen to article

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has called on Nigerians

to be calm following Tuesday's day of bombings in the country, during

which several people lost their lives in a bomb blast in Yobe State, and

several more were injured in an explosion at the APC gubernatorial

campaign rally in Rivers State.
In a statement released by the Atiku Media Office on Wednesday, the APC

chieftain pointed out that Nigeria's democracy was on trial, adding that

no matter what efforts were applied to the contrary, Nigerians should

never give up their desire for change.
“Nigerian democracy can and must withstand terror,” Atiku said. “Whether

the terror is from insurgents or from desperate politicians, in the end,

democracy must prevail.”
The former Vice President called for a strong bipartisan signal or

approach against those who are willing to sacrifice the nation for

political gain.
“Our political elders must lift up their voices against violent desperados

within their parties, and anyone found guilty should be punished severely

and openly.”
Atiku urged Nigerians to continue to remain vigilant especially around

this election period, and to report any suspicious people or activities to

the relevant authorities.
