Edo 2020: Atiku Criticises Buhari Over Police Siege On Wike

Edo 2020: Atiku Criticises Buhari Over Police Siege On Wike (Updated: Saturday 19th September 2020, 09:17 AM)


Atiku Abubakar, former vice president, has reacted to the police siege on Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, who is currently in Edo State.

Mr Wike, according to his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was barred from leaving a hotel he lodged in at the state capital, Benin City.

He is the national campaign chairman of the state ruling party on whose platform Godwin Obaseki, the state governor is seeking a second term in office.

His major challenger, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, is of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and enjoys the support of erstwhile national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.

While leaders of the PDP are said to be under police siege, leaders of the APC are reportedly moving around freely despite restrictions on vehicular moment. TODAY POLITICS as at press has not independently verified the claim.

“A promise of free & fair election cannot be mere lip service. It’s a commitment & should be demonstrated by way of equal access & restriction to every stakeholder,” Mr Abubakar said in a Friday evening tweet.

“Blockading the hotel of @OfficialPDPNig governors in the eve of the Edo election isn’t a good way to show fairness,” the opposition candidate in the last presidential election added.

He is referring to the assertion of President Muhammadu Buhari who promised free, fair and credible election during the exercise tomorrow.
