June 12: "Civil servants now lose their jobs just because they criticize politicians in government positions" - Ex-vice Pres., Atiku

Ex-Vice President and expected presidential flag bearer of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has voiced out against what he described as a consistent pattern of departure from constitutional due process to tendencies of authoritarianism. 

The ex vice president said in a statement marking the 25th anniversary of June 12, that there was a growing culture of arbitrariness in some of the institutions of government at all levels that is contradictory to the notion of inclusiveness and fairness that a democratic society guarantees.

He said: “Today, across our major cities and even in the hinterlands, citizens – especially the youth – can hardly walk freely in open avenues without the police stopping them to search through the content of their mobile handsets. 

“Civil servants now lose their jobs just because they choose to criticize politicians in government positions. There are even suggestions in some quarters that civil servants should be barred from signing to social media networks.”
