Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has warned against having a one-party dictatorship in the country.
Atiku said this on Tuesday when he hosted the National Executive Committee of the Inter-Party Advisory Council Nigeria (IPAC).
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 general elections also used the opportunity to criticise the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC on the conduct of the elections.
He wrote on Twitter, “Today, during a meeting with the National Executive Committee of the Inter-Party Advisory Council Nigeria (IPAC), I emphasised the importance of protecting our democracy. I expressed concern over the APC’s actions, leading Nigeria towards a one-party dictatorship. I urged IPAC, led by Yabagi Sani, to rally opposition parties to form a stronger front against this threat.
“I criticised INEC for conducting poor elections, including discrepancies in voter numbers. I called for the National Assembly to prioritise constitutional and electoral reforms, in particular electronic voting reforms, to ensure transparent elections and protect our democracy. I believe democracy, despite its flaws, is the best form of government, and I am committed to working with others in providing its preservation in Nigeria.”
