Nigeria Sliding Toward Despotism, Says Atiku

Atiku Abubakar, former vice president and presidential hopeful of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has warned against what he called a consistent pattern of departure from constitutional due process to tendencies of authoritarianism.

Abubakar called on all political actors to let June 12 and all that it embodied inspire them to promote democratic principles, especially as Nigeria is about to go to the polls again.

The former vice president said in a statement marking the 25th anniversary of the June 12, 1993, presidential election that there was a growing culture of arbitrariness in some of the institutions of government at all levels that was contradictory to the notion of inclusiveness and fairness that a democratic society guaranteed.
