Celebrated Actor and Chieftain of the Labour Party (LP), Mr Kenneth Okonkwo is of the opinion that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (LP), Atiku Abubakar, is a failed politician whose only aim at this moment is to destabilize Nigeria’s democracy.
Mr Okonkwo’s comment is predicated upon recent statements made by Alhaji Atiku during an interactive session of the Arewa Townhall Policy Dialogue in Kaduna.
In his reaction, Mr Okonkwo, said Atiku should have by now be disqualified by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for going to the north to make such a “genocidal statement”.
“Atiku Abubakar went to the north and said northerners should support only the people from the north, not Yoruba, not Igbo, that is ethnic profiling.
“Atiku knows that he has failed, what he is trying to do now is to make sure he destroys our democracy after he has failed and he should be called to order.
“INEC should be implementing Section 97 of the Electoral Act now on Atiku because what he has done is a criminal offence (trying to profile ethnic and religious groups.
“I have always said he is very unfit to be president and not only that he is unfit, he is now a threat to our democracy,” the lawyer argued.
