Atiku campaign council urges Buhari to task security agencies on protection of lives, property




The Director, Strategic Communication for Atiku Campaign Council, Dele Momodu, has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to task the security agencies with the protection of lives and property.

Momodu alleged that the PDP which is in the lead in campaigning was unable to install their billboards to paste posters in most APC-controlled states.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, Friday, Momodu said “in practically all APC-controlled states, It’s been virtually impossible for us to install our billboards to paste our posters, use APC government-controlled radio stations, especially in Lagos where the candidate of the APC is seen as next to God.”

“So, I wish to appeal through you to the federal government since they control the APC, that this is not what democracy is all about. I was one of those who fought and suffered for this democracy. We never envisaged that in the civilian regime, we are going to have this kind of harassment, whereby we cannot practice democracy as it should be done.

“In 2014-2015, I was one of those who supported Buhari, and there was never a time that PDP disturbed us because if they had disturbed us, maybe there would have been no Buhari. So, we are hoping that Mr. President would help us speak to the security agencies, to protect the lives of our people, to protect our properties wherever they are on the soil of Nigeria because we are all Nigerians,” he said.
