Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has condemned the alleged harassment of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, by security agents.
We had reported that Atiku, who returned to Nigeria after his stay in Dubai, on Sunday hinted that he was intimidated by security operatives.
He was quoted as saying, “I arrived to Abuja this morning to a search by agents of the state, aimed at intimidating me and my staff.”
However reacting on Twitter, Fayose said the embarrassment of the PDP presidential candidate by security agents means that the end of dictatorship was close.
He wrote, “When dictatorship is closer to its inglorious end, it employs all tactics including, the most absurd.
“Subjecting a former VP of Nigeria to all manners of embarrassment at the Airport just because he is now the candidate of the @OfficialPDPNig is not unexpected. His time is up!”
