Atiku Urges Opposition Parties to Unite Against One-Party Dominance

By Fatima M. Sambo

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has raised concerns about the potential for Nigeria to transition into a one-party state, urging opposition parties to unite and challenge the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

During a meeting with the national executive committee of the Inter-Party Advisory Council Nigeria (IPAC) on Tuesday, Atiku emphasized the importance of safeguarding democracy and preventing the country from slipping into a one-party system.

Addressing the IPAC leadership, Atiku stated, "The project of protecting democracy in our country is not about just one man. You have come here today to say that we should cooperate in order to promote democracy. But the truth of the matter is that our democracy is fast becoming a one-party system; and, of course, you know that when we have a one-party system, we should just forget about democracy."

He further urged the IPAC leadership, led by its national president, Yabagi Sani, to prioritize the need for opposition parties to merge and present a formidable challenge to the ruling party.

Atiku's call for unity among opposition parties comes amidst growing concerns about the dominance of the APC and the potential implications for Nigeria's democratic system. As the country approaches the next election cycle, the former Vice President's appeal for collaboration seeks to address the perceived imbalance in the political landscape and ensure a competitive electoral environment.
