The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of instigating violence in the country.
Declaring that that was unbecoming of a good leader, Atiku said Buhari must go, therefore.
Atiku who spoke during the PDP presidential campaign rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, quoted Buhari as telling the people of Zamfara State at the weekend that they should pray for rain to fall so that they could feed well and be strong enough to make trouble.
Atiku said it was not the first time Buhari would be instigating violence among Nigerians.
He said Nigerians were no longer interested in fighting one another, hence Buhari should be voted out in the coming election.
His words: “Do you know what the president said yesterday in Zamfara when he went there? He said Zamfara people, let us pray for rainfall, let us pray we grow food, let us pray we eat bellefull, and then we can make trouble.
“Is that what a president should say?! Buhari, I am addressing you. This is a president who is preaching violence, and this is not the first time he has done so in this country.
“We are not going to allow any person to knock our heads and make us fight; we want peace, we want prosperity, we want development, we want jobs — that is what we want for this country.
“We are not ready to fight each other again; so any leader who has come to instigate us to fight against each other, we will use our ballot papers to throw him out. So Buhari must go, Buhari must go, Buhari must go — I love you all, I swear to God.”
