Presidential Election: Atiku Warns Military Officers

The presidential candidate of the leading opposition, the People’s
Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, yesterday warned the military
not to meddle into politics by taking sides to favour any of the
parties.

“The military is not supposed to be involved in politics but see it as a
duty to protect the territorial integrity of the nation,”

Atiku said at the U. J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar. Addressing a packed
stadium, he also urged the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) to
remain neutral in the entire electoral process.

He said if he wins the elections, one of the policy thrust of his
administration would be to invest in education so as to lift the youths.

“I will invest in education so that youths in the state can advance
themselves,” he said. Atiku promised to partner Governor Ben Ayade of
Cross River State to industrialize the state and create job
opportunities.
