Polls: Atiku condemns Lagos political leaders over alleged intimidation of voters


Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (), has condemned political leaders in State over alleged intimidation of voters in the state.

The former Vice President in series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle @atiku on Friday said it was unbecoming for individuals loyal to the ruling party in the state to unabatedly make ethnic slurs aimed at intimidating voters on day.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission () has scheduled the and state assembly elections for Saturday (today), March 18, 2023.

I am concerned about how lackeys of political leaders in Lagos State have unabatedly made ethnic slurs aimed at intimidating voters in the state in tomorrow's election.

I condemn this uncivilised behaviour and also condemn the criminal silence of the security agencies and the political leadership in Lagos State and on this development. — Atiku Abubakar

Beyond that, I find it morally wrong and repugnant for political actors to make broad-day incitements against a particular ethnic bloc in an attempt to intimidate them from voting for their choice candidate.— Atiku Abubakar

It is, therefore on this note, that I specifically call on security agencies in the country to ensure that politicians and their protégés submit to the rules of democratic fair-play across the country, especially in Lagos State, for the sake of decency and the promotion. — Atiku Abubakar
