There's a Sitting President In Nigeria; APC Reminds Atiku (Press Statement) by solaugo1: 3:04am On Jul 31, 2019


The All Progressives Congress (APC) strongly condemns the 2019 presidential candidate of the opposition party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar who has now made it a pastime to make public statements on issues, which constitutionally should be reserved for the duly elected head of government or his designees.

As a Party, we would have thought that Atiku who in the past occupied such high office as the country's vice president would clearly understand the workings of government, particularly as it bothers on national security, foreign policy and our international engagement.

We have noted Alh. Atiku’s incessant habits of releasing statements on public issues as if he were an alternative President of this country and with a clear intention to undermine President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC-led government.

In recent times, Atiku has demonstrated lack of regard for the sovereignty of the office of the President and Nigerian government through condescending statements.

He has made several of such statements regarding the activities of the Nigerian military, issues of national security, and international relations.

The latest of such statements is the one he made on the emergence of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister of Britain. Even when our duly elected President, who has the responsibility of making an official statement on such matter, has made the position of our country known. We note with serious concern that Atiku has been throwing himself around as a shadow President of Nigeria.

We would like to state clearly that such position could only be found under the parliamentary system; it does not exist under the Presidential system of government that we practice in Nigeria.

Atiku, like every Nigerian citizen, should understand that being a candidate for an elective office, including that of the President, does not confer on him a sovereign status.

Atiku continuous portrayal of himself as a shadow President under our system borders on felony and makes him a patent impostor.

There can only be one democratically elected and legitimate government at a time in this country. That clearly is the administration of Buhari

It is important to remind Atiku that issues of national security, foreign policy and international engagements are not matters to be exploited to achieve mischievous political ends.

We reiterate that Alh. Atiku has lost the 2019 presidential election and it would be unhelpful to him to continue to make a mockery of our country. We expect Atiku to quickly address himself to the stark reality of his loss and move on. Our laws are clear on all acts of criminalities, in this case, a clear case of felony.

Nigerians expect that the enforcement of relevant laws should apply to every Nigerian, irrespective of class and status.

This government would not be found wanting where it is required to take decisive actions.

Very insecure press release from APC. Seems the drums of #AtikuIsComing is giving them sleepless nights.

If Buhari was behaving like a competent President he wouldn't need to bother with Atiku's activities. An unsavoury sight to witness a sitting President, though with an alleged illegitimate mandate, being rattled by Twitter and Facebook posts of a former Vice President.

Doesn’t Nigeria’s democracy and constitution guarantees freedom of speech and expression?

APC are embarrassing themselves and the Presidency. Obama, Clinton, Speaker Pelosi (Democrat), etc that release statements, are they the Republican President Trump?

So of all the problems in Nigeria, This fraud party is more concerned about who tweets what first and makes statement.
If bushari feels it to important, he should get an iPhone and follow all the trending topics on twitter and make statements about them.

I see the whole story as rabble rousing. Kilàtiku Se gan? They keep saying this and that. Does he addressed himself as the president? No.

He issues the purported press release in his own name, then what is wrong with that?

APC and the present government are definitely being haunted by their evil acts against Atiku and others. And, may that spirit continue with greater force until their rememberance is completely erased. Wicked hypocrites

Many people no know say all these guys na d same. After Buhari rule dem finish, Atiku go enter; anything to make north hold on to power as long as possible. Mumus go jubilate articulated victory, meanwhile the gameplan na to sideline south. However, dem go carry along the 'my belle pass level' slaves from d south.

I wonder how the decision of Atiku to make statements on national or security issues is a worry for the Federal Government or APC.

He is a Nigerian. He doesn't have access to dosiers and security intelligence reports that the president has. He is not the president and I don't think he speaks in capacity of the President of Nigeria.

Anyway, I know that when you hear a man constantly saying to his wife and family that he is still the head of the home, that is an indication that there is a problem in the home; he has lost control of the home.

Well, you know nothing about government, rule of law, and the sovereignty of a state.
No sane government will allow anybody to keep releasing press statement on national issue.

You can't try that with Trump.

I remember when their leaders where granting interviews to international TV stations and promising to form a parallel government... They never knew there was a sitting government by then...
