Atiku to Nigerians: Don’t allow those seeking to divide us succeed


Atiku Abubakar,
presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called on
Nigerians to avoid instigators who are trying to sow division across ethnic and
religious lines in the country.

In his Easter message posted on Twitter on
Saturday, Atiku urged citizens to “collectively own our problems and
collectively find solutions to overcome them”.

In the aftermath of the February 25 presidential election
won by Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), online discussion
has been riddled with ethnic slurs as supporters of different contenders in the
election continue to engage in heated debates.

Addressing the situation, Atiku called on “leaders at all
levels” to “come together to help all Nigerians resolve the differences that
divide us”.

He added that Nigerians must constantly ensure the unity of
the country, saying it is the only way “we can thrive as a people”.

“This weekend, we join our Christian brothers and sisters in
Nigeria and across the world to commemorate the Easter festivities,” the PDP
presidential candidate said.

“This commemoration is a time for deep reflection as it
marks the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and his victory over death. It is a time to
reach out to our brothers and sisters in need.

 “It is also a time
for all of us — regardless of faith or ethnicity — to come together to pray for
the peace of our nation. We must all remain constant in our efforts to promote
unity — across all lines — because united, our nation remains stronger, and we
can thrive as a people.

“Our shared experiences bring us to the conclusion that no
matter what the forces of evil can do, we, as Nigerians, united in doing good,
can and shall prevail.

“Our leaders at all levels should follow the virtues that
define this season—sacrifice, love, and charity—and come together to help all
Nigerians resolve the differences that divide us.

“We must not allow those who seek to divide us to pretend as
if our problems are a result of another ethnic or religious group. We must
collectively own our problems and collectively find solutions to overcome


Atiku finished second in the presidential election and has
filed a petition to challenge the result of the poll.
