The presidential candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has warned various security agencies in Nigeria against interference in politics.
He made this known while speaking during his campaign rally in Calabar, Cross River State on Friday at the U. J. Esuene stadium, Atiku lamented the involvement of the military during elections.
“The military is not supposed to be involved in politics but see it as a duty to protect the territorial integrity of the nation,” he said.
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.
