The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization has urged the National Security Adviser, General Mohammed Monguno, to further reassure Nigerians in the battle against political thuggery by intervening to ensure that those who attacked its rallies in Kaduna, Borno and Gombe States are brought to justice.
They made the demand in a statement by the Spokesperson Atiku/Okowa Campaign Organization, Kola Ologbondiyan.
In the statement on Friday, Ologbondiyan said: “Our Campaign commends the NSA for his stance against state governors as well as politically intolerant politicians who engage in mobilizing thugs to attack the campaigns of rival political parties as witnessed in the attack of the PDP Presidential campaign rallies in Kaduna, Borno and Gombe States.
“The Atiku/Okowa Campaign holds that bringing those who attacked our rallies in Kaduna, Borno and Gombe to book will reassure Nigerians and serve as very strong deterrent to perpetrators of electoral violence and their backers.
“Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign had been at the receiving end of violators in spite of the decent campaigns of Atiku.
“It is therefore imperative to state that unless those responsible for the violence against our campaigns and supporters are made to face justice, even the warning by the NSA will not be taken seriously by the perpetrators.
“Our Campaign however urges Nigerians to remain focused and undeterred in their resolve to vote in Atiku Abubakar as the next President of our country so that he can commence the onerous task of rebuilding our nation from the misrule of the All Progressives Congress.”
