The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar has said military commanders do not have to obey President Muhammadu Buhari in carrying out orders that are inconsistent with the law of the land.
Speaking at the 84th emergency meeting of the PDP national executive council, Atiku said the President is more monger than a Democratic.
According to Atiku, President Buhari only put on the grab of a Democrat so he could return to power, but he remains a general
He said “I want to direct this message to our military commanders and officers. You know that the military commanders and officers are not bound to execute orders that are manifestly unlawful.”
“This is the law, this is the tradition in the military; so if you are a professional military officer and soldier and also a policeman, you are not bound to execute an order that is manifestly unlawful, no matter who issues that order.”
It could be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said he has ordered the military and the police to be ruthless, warning that anyone who snatches ballot box will pay with his life.
