Atiku, Tinubu, Obi Demand Security Beef-Up

The Presidential campaign organisations of the Peoples Democratic Party, the All Progressives Congress and the Labour Party have demanded increased security on campaign grounds.

Speaking against the backdrop of the terror alerts issued by the United States Mission and British High Commission in Nigeria, the councils also insisted that they would not suspend their rallies.

The groups spoke on behalf of their presidential candidates; Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, Bola Tinubu (APC) and Peter Obi of the LP.

This is as the police pledged to deploy more personnel on campaign grounds and strengthen security nationwide.

The US and the UK in the security alerts warned their citizens in Nigeria about the risk of attacks by terrorists across the country, especially in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The warnings noted that the targets might include government buildings, places of worship, schools, markets, shopping malls, hotels, bars, restaurants, sports gatherings, transport terminals, law enforcement facilities, and international organizations.

But speaking on the development, the PDP vowed to go ahead with its campaigns in preparation for the 2023 general elections.
