PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Blast Buhari On Travel Ban List

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Sunday lambasted President Muhammadu
Buhari for banning fifty (50) prominent Nigerians from travelling
outside the country.
In a statement obtained by Thecable, issued on his behalf by his
campaign organization, Atiku averred that the ban was ‘a
throwback to Buhari’s evil Decree Number Two of 1984 which
criminalised truth telling if it did not please Buhari, proving that
dictators can grow old, but they can’t grow into democrats.’
Recall that some Nigerians like the former aviation minister, Femi
Fani Kayode, former aide to ex president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno
Omokri and other legal giants have frowned at the order given by
Buhari.
Citing the 1999 constitution and its provisions on the right to free
movement, Atiku said, “The Nigerian Constitution guarantees every
Nigerian citizen freedom of movement and freedom of association.
This Constitutional right cannot be taken away except by a court
order”.
Part of the statement reads thus
“We must be unequivocal in saying that we abhor any act of
criminality, financially or otherwise, but the rule of law must be our
guide at all times or society will descend to anarchy.
“Thus, we find it most undemocratic that in a nation governed by
the rule of law, a President who swore an oath to abide by the
Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, does this.
“The Nigerian Constitution guarantees every Nigerian citizen
freedom of movement and freedom of association. This
Constitutional right cannot be taken away except by a court order.
“This sudden dictatorial act is a throwback to Buhari’s evil Decree
Number Two of 1984 which criminalised truth telling if it did not
please Buhari, proving that dictators can grow old, but they can’t
grow into democrats.
“It is precisely this type of draconian orders that have chased
investors away from Nigeria and it is precisely why Nigerians will
chase this recession friendly government away from power on
February 16, 2019, so we can begin the job of Getting Nigeria
Working Again.
