Former Vice President of Nigeria and the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Presidential candidate during the just concluded 2019 Presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the recent arrest of his son-in-law and lawyer by the Economic Crime and Finacial Commission(EFCC).
Speaking via his Twitter handle, Atiku said the duo were arrested for supporting his presidential ambition.
He added that the Federal Government should not forget that it has the mandate to pursue peace and justice for all irrespective of Party affiliation.
My son in law and lawyer have been detained, one for 3 weeks and the other recently. They are paying the price for supporting me. I urge those now persecuting them to remember that a government’s mandate is to pursue peace and justice for all, and not just those who support them.
