See How Atiku Has Shown That He Has Been A Good Student Of Goodluck Jonathan All Along

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, has said that his political ambition is not worth the life of any Nigerian.

Abubakar, who spoke at the signing of the National Peace Accord at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, cited former President Goodluck Jonathan’s 2015 speech, highlighting the importance of credible elections.

President Muhammadu Buhari, in his speech, reiterated the call for free and fair elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The Chairman of the National Peace Committee, Gen. Abdulsalami Atiku (retd.), also called on the security agents to remain neutral during the electoral process on February 16 and March 2.
It will be recalled that former president Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, as well held the same position, making the statement that his political ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian citizen.

The President said this while addressing politicians at the All Political Parties Summit, holding in the Federal Capital Territory.

He decried the discordant tunes from politicians since the advent of terrorism in the country and called on politicians to join hands with the Federal Government if the war against terror must be won.

Emphasizing the need to place national interest ahead of personal ambition, he also decried what he called anti-democratic tendencies of some politicians and the tension being created. He advised that no one should play into the hands of extremist elements that use the campaign of terror against the country.

The President also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the establishment of the Inter-Party Advisory Council and the transformation of the electoral process and called on politicians not to take this for granted.

The organisers of the event chose the very significant June 12 to meet, and uppermost in their minds was how to effect inter party collaboration, national stability and democratic consolidation.

The organisers chose the theme following discordant tunes in the polity following terrorism and abduction of Chibok schoolgirls.

The Chairman of the occasion, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, brought his understanding of what it takes to midwife the democratic process to bear, as he spoke about how politicians could sustain the Nigerian democracy especially in a charged atmosphere.

Also, security was said to be very important if democracy must thrive, as political upheavals in the country would bear serious consequences if the political class do not conduct themselves with decorum, no matter the political divide.
