- Atiku Abubakar has taken a swipe at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)
- The former vice president mocked the ruling party amid its internal crisis while praising the PDP
- Atiku noted that the opposition party has been an example of the order needed to sustain Nigeria's democracy
Amid the current leadership crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria's former vice president Atiku Abubakar appears to have thrown a subtle shade at the ruling party.
Legit.ng gathered that the former presidential candidate took a swipe at the APC saying the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been an example of the order and constitutionality needed to sustain genuine democracy in Nigeria.
Atiku who disclosed this on his various social media platform on Thursday, June 25, added that a political party without law and order cannot provide law and order to the country.
He went on to pray that the order, discipline, and constitutionality PDP as a party has exemplified, should guide other political parties.
Ever since a Court of Appeal upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the APC national chairman, the ruling party has been engulfed in a leadership battle.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the struggle for who is to occupy the seat of the APC chairman is not over yet going by an order of a high court in Rivers on Friday, June 19.
Granting an order of perpetual injection in a suit filed by Dele Moses, the high court in Port Harcourt presided over by Justice Florence Fiberesima ruled that Victor Giadom has no right to parade himself as a member of the APC's National Working Committee (NWC).
The court also issued an order restraining the Giadom, the deputy national secretary of the ruling party, from acting in the capacity of the acting national chairman.
In a related development, despite a court order on Thursday, June 18, Giadom is still unwilling to refrain from referring to himself as the party's acting national chairman.
In a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Giadom stated that his authority as the acting national chairman of the ruling party was confirmed by an order of a high court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
