The (PDP) has cautioned the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, to refrain himself from acts or actions that will suggest in any way that the military has become an arm of a political party. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/McPSKucSiN
Gen. Buratai’s allusion to @atiku Abubakar, as well as his threats to officers and ranks to execute the unlawful order by President Muhammadu Buhari to participate in the electoral process is an aberration of our laws and a recipe for crisis. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/GAsl0Gyyz7
We urge the international community to note the roles being played by President Buhari, his Federal Executive Council and Gen. Buratai in our electoral process. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/LLR07wFUqw
The more the political process is heightened, the more the political process is threatened with instability and therefore the easier it becomes for d military to legitimise its stay in power on the ground that it wants to prevent the dismemberment of the country #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/HiBGB13YUH
Military rule is not open and inclusive, but rather it is restrictive, exclusive and quite often outright authoritarian. In its attempt to rule, the military mobilised ethnic, regional, religious and communal identities. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/AuRVgdtEuG
Such is the case in this new order by General Muhammadu Buhari who masquerades as a democratic president but his actions and statements prove otherwise. How can the president order shoot at sight? #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/2IKpncRcGx
Buhari has no power to deploy soldiers for election, Political parties have advised. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/2WCRHqzCLh
Military incursion in Nigerian politics is up legitimate and in most cases they are undertaken to satisfy parochial interests which invariably give rise to additional problems which the military seems incapable of addressing. #ElectionsNotWar pic.twitter.com/vHukKDfSku
President Buhari should also avail himself of the subsisting judgment of the Court of Appeal, which on February 15, 2015, held that the President has no powers to deploy soldiers in the conduct of elections. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/9VZWtDg4GW
Gen. Buratai is counseled to note that the loyalty of the military is to the state and that the President lacks the powers, under our laws, to deploy soldiers for the conduct of elections. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/tfqhFxBF6m
Nigerians cannot be intimidated by any body no matter how highly placed or the rank they hold. Election is not war and cannot be War. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/Ptyp0VkjNc
According to the court, “the time has come for us to establish the culture of democratic rule in the country and to start to do the right thing particularly when it has to do with dealing with the electoral process, which is one of the pillars of democracy. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/HmSCyYttw4
It is imperative to state that by trying to drag the military to participate in the February 23 Presidential elections, President Buhari plots to suspend our constitution, assume the position of an emperor, trigger unrest, and subvert our electoral process. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/Kqu4J77f30
It may interest President Buhari to know that the judgment was sequel to a suit filed by the APC Leader in the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, seeking a declaration that deployment of soldiers during elections is illegal and unconstitutional. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/ivxU6S5m5Y
The PDP directs President Buhari to the judgment of the Federal High Court, Lagos on March 23, 2015, wherein the court, presided over by Justice Ibrahim Buba, directly outlawed the deployment of troops in the conduct of elections in our country. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/JMxqRWKBmz
Gen Buratai should concentrate on his very demanding assignment of protecting the territorial integrity of our nation and ending insurgency rather than dabbling into partisan politics at the risk of our national cohesion. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/vvbEt5TBzt
The PDP further counsels President Buhari and Gen. Buratai to end their rationalizing of military option, as the courts have summarily dismissed their arguments that soldiers are needed to guarantee peaceful elections. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/T2yVyWzOva
“The state is obligated to confine the military to their very demanding assignment, especially in this time of insurgencies by keeping them out of elections”, the court held. #ElectionNotWar
In case, President Buhari is not aware, as usual, the court directly held that “the Armed Forces have no role in elections” and if soldiers must vote, they must do so in their barracks. #ElectionNotWar pic.twitter.com/qDiyLOvIxu
