Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has warned that the country must not be allowed to become a one party state.

He raised the concern during a meeting with the National Executive Committee of the Inter-Party Advisory Council Nigeria, IPAC, in Abuja on Tuesday.

Atiku in a post of his X, said: “Today, during a meeting with the National Executive Committee of IPAC, I emphasised the importance of protecting our democracy.

I expressed concern over the All Progressives Congress, APC’s actions, leading Nigeria towards a one-party dictatorship.

I urged IPAC, led by Yabagi Sani, to rally opposition parties to form a stronger front against this threat.

I criticised Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for conducting poor elections, including discrepancies in voter numbers.

I called for the National Assembly to prioritise constitutional and electoral reforms, in particular electronic voting reforms, to ensure transparent elections and protect our democracy.

I believe democracy, despite its flaws, is the best form of government, and I am committed to working with others in providing its preservation in Nigeria,” he added.
