Oshiomhole: Atiku wants to protect thugs



Oshiomhole APC candidate

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on Tuesday accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar of seeking to give immunity to thugs with his opposition to the shoot at sight order by President Muhammadu Buhari to alleged ballot box snatchers.

Speaking to correspondents late on Tuesday in his private office, Oshiomhole said that Atiku’s stance was capable of setting the country on fire.

“There is no responsible candidate down to the House of Assembly who will find fault in any pronouncement that seeks to discourage thuggery in the coming elections.

“So, for a man who is aspiring to preside over a country like Nigeria to seek protection for thuggery, to seek cover for thuggery, even as he has already said he would grant amnesty to looters, I do not think Nigerians have any basis to doubt that Atiku Abubakar’s mission is to set Nigeria on fire just so that he can become president even if he will preside over a graveyard. Only those who rely on thuggery can find fault with the President’s directive.”

He also accused the PDP of having infiltrated the ICT unit of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC wondering how the opposition party knew that the APC imported smart card readers from China.

“We are not like stammerers who look for a fight because they cannot win an argument. Assuming, without conceding that it is true, it means Atiku is working hand in hand with the ICT unit in INEC to know the kind of card readers that are deployed to a particular location. INEC being independent as it is, I am not in a position to determine where the card readers would be deployed or where they were imported from”, he said.
