Atiku said this during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the PDP in Abuja on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, while reacting to the ‘snatch ballot box & pay with your life’ comment by President Buhari.
”Anybody who decides to snatch boxes or lead thugs to disturb the election, maybe that would be the last unlawful action you would take. I have given the military and police the order to be ruthless.
”I am going to warn anybody who thinks he would lead a body of thugs in his locality to snatch boxes or to disturb the voting system; he would do it at the expense of his/her own life.”
“I have always said that General Buhari is not a democrat, he’s never been a democrat. We started the fight to drive the military, he was never there, he never participated. And you can see that because he just wore the garb of democracy so that he can come back to power and do whatever he’s doing today.
“He’s not a democrat, it’s a lip service. He’s more of a power monger than a democrat.”
