The Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has presented a 6-point demand to the federal government .
Topping the demand is a call for the unfreezing of opposition politicians’ bank accounts.
These were made known when former Head of States, Abdulsalam Abubakar led a committee to meet with Atiku and his running mate Peter Obi in Abuja last night.
Atiku and the PDP also demand that subsequent elections should be demilitarized.
The other demands by Atiku were:
*That accreditation of voters should take place before voting in subsequent elections.
*That there should be no deployment of the military in subsequent elections.
* That INEC should open its back end server to all participating parties.
*That there should be a release of all politicians detained illegally by FG.
A source at the meeting disclosed that Atiku “warned that tensions are building up in the land.”
NPC team which will be meeting President Buhari soon with the demands included Cardinal John Onaiyekan, Bishop Kukah and Rev. Fr Atta Barkindo of the NPC secretariat.
Atiku and his team labeled the presidential election as the worst in the history of elections in Nigeria as it was married by wanting rigging.
They following are the issues they had with the polls:
*Deployment of the military was unconstitutional and in breach of Supreme Court judgement.
*That resultantly, a lot of malpractices between the INEC officers, the ruling party and the military took place to undermine the votes/voters of the PDP.
*That there was collaboration between INEC and FG to undermine the sanctity of the votes of the people.
*That this is the worst election in 20 years. No improvement from 2015.
