Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal said on Monday a vote for Peoples Democratic Party candidate Abubakar Atiku is an invitation to domination by an ethnic group.
Babachir, while reacting to a report that he has dumped Labour Party Candidate Peter Obi said in a statement that Atiku’s administration would not be different from that of Muhammadu Buhari in terms of appointments.
“I have just seen a trending news that I have abandoned Peter Obi to work for Atiku Abubakar. There is nothing farther from the truth than this. I have never contemplated joining PDP since its formation as I view the PDP as the worst form of a collection of oligarchs and reactionaries.
“Besides, I find myself every year battling Fulani herdsmen determined to have their animals invade my farms and eat-up my crops every year.
“This is aside from their determination to take over the ancestral farmlands of my kinsmen as they do everywhere in the North. All these they do in a cavalier manner while their elite kinsmen dominant in the government keep mute.
“Moreover, I view a transition of government from one Muslim Fulani president to another as the worst form of Muslim-Muslim ticket. It also represents ethnic domination by one ethnic group over others. I remain a Peter Obi diehard. Any news to the contrary is fake news.”
