Former Nigeria Vice President and presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic People, Atiku Abubakar, has called on Nigeria’s traditional, religious and political leaders to join in the campaign to ensure probity regarding President Bola Tinubu’s credentials to be Nigeria’s President.
“As leaders it is out duty to advance the well being of all,” he said.
“People look up to us to respect the rules and defend them.”
He said it should not take months or a decade to certify a candidate’s credentials.
He said Nigeria’s reputation is at stake.
“I’m a democrat by conviction and the citizen of a country that I love,” he said.
He paid tribute to the late human rights activist Gani Fawehinmi who he said inspired him on the voyage of discovery.
“Now he can truly rest in peace.”
He commended journalist David Hundeyin and described him as a source of inspiration.
“The price of liberty is eternal vigilance,” he said.
He called on Nigerian leaders, including traditional and religious leaders, as well as political leaders like Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwanksaso to join in the campaign to ensure probity.
“I will only drop the fight when the court rules,” he said.
